AN ACT to amend the general business law and the penal law, in  relation
  to preventing the sale of firearms, rifles, and shotguns to criminals

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature here-
by finds and declares as follows:
  1. Firearms, rifles and shotguns are used to kill over 30,000 individ-
uals in the United States every year, including 1,000 individuals in New
York state alone. Additionally, there  are  100,000  non-fatal  injuries
across  the  country.  The  federal  government has largely ignored this
public health crisis and has left it up to state and  local  governments
to protect its citizens. Firearm violence also costs billions of dollars
and  causes  incalculable  emotional  damage,  devastating  families and
communities throughout the country.  Therefore, the state  of  New  York
has  a  strong interest in reducing violence and crimes that involve the
use of firearms and the illegal trafficking of  firearms.  Illegal  guns
obtained  throughout  the  state end up in the hands of criminals, youth
and violent individuals who use them to threaten, maim and kill.
  2. There is a thriving underground market for illegal firearms, large-
ly driven by demand from drug gangs and other criminals. A highly  effi-
cient  and  continuous  business  practice  exists in which firearms are
moved from legal manufacture and sale to prohibited  purchasers,  making
them  illegal  firearms.  In  2011, according to a review by the federal
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) of trace data
compiled for several regions in the state,  including  Albany,  Buffalo,
Rochester,  Syracuse,  Long Island and New York City that calendar year,

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD00353-02-3
