AN ACT to amend the penal law and the general business law, in  relation
  to  establishing  a  waiting period before a firearm, shotgun or rifle
  may be delivered to a person

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  12  of  section  400.00 of the penal law, as
amended by chapter 1 of the laws of 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  12. Records required of gunsmiths and dealers in firearms. Any  person
licensed  as  gunsmith  or  dealer  in firearms shall keep a record book
approved as to form, except in the city of New York, by the  superinten-
dent of state police. In the record book shall be entered at the time of
every  transaction  involving  a firearm the date, name, age, occupation
and residence of any person from whom a firearm is received or to whom a
firearm is delivered, and the calibre, make, model, manufacturer's  name
and  serial number, or if none, any other distinguishing number or iden-
tification mark on such firearm. Before  delivering  a  firearm  to  any
person, the licensee shall require him to produce either a license valid
under  this  section  to  carry  or possess the same, or proof of lawful
authority as an exempt person pursuant to section 265.20 OF THIS CHAPTER
AND TEN BUSINESS DAYS HAVE ELAPSED SINCE THE DATE THE LICENSEE CONTACTED
THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND  CHECK  SYSTEM  (NICS)  OR  ITS
SUCCESSOR  TO INITIATE A NATIONAL INSTATE CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK.  In
addition, before delivering a firearm to a peace officer,  the  licensee
shall  verify  that person's status as a peace officer with the division
of state police. After completing  the  foregoing,  the  licensee  shall
remove  and  retain the attached coupon and enter in the record book the
date of such license, number, if any, and name of the licensing officer,
in the case of the holder of a license  to  carry  or  possess,  or  the
shield or other number, if any, assignment and department, unit or agen-
cy,  in  the  case  of an exempt person. The original transaction report
shall be forwarded to the division of state police within  ten  days  of
delivering  a  firearm to any person, and a duplicate copy shall be kept
