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

  Section  1. The penal law is amended by adding a new section 265.50 to
read as follows:
§ 265.50 ILLEGAL PROMOTION OR SALE OF A WEAPON ON PUBLIC PROPERTY.
  A PERSON IS GUILTY OF ILLEGAL PROMOTION OR SALE OF A WEAPON ON  PUBLIC
PROPERTY  WHEN HE OR SHE PROMOTES, SELLS, TRANSFERS, EXCHANGES, GIVES OR
DISPOSES OF ANY WEAPON SITUATED UPON PROPERTY OWNED BY THE STATE OR  ANY
POLITICAL SUBDIVISION THEREOF.
  ILLEGAL  PROMOTION OR SALE OF A WEAPON ON PUBLIC PROPERTY IS A CLASS A
MISDEMEANOR.
  § 2. Subdivision 8 of section 400.00 of the penal law, as  amended  by
chapter 189 of the laws of 2000, is amended to read as follows:
  8.  License:  exhibition  and display. Every licensee while carrying a

ises.  Upon demand, the license shall be exhibited for inspection to any

police  officer.  A  license  as gunsmith or dealer in firearms shall be
prominently displayed on the licensed premises. A gunsmith or dealer  of
firearms  may  conduct business temporarily at a location other than the
location specified on the license if  such  temporary  location  is  the
location  for  a  gun show or event sponsored by any national, state, or
local organization, or any affiliate of any such organization devoted to
the collection, competitive use  or  other  sporting  use  of  firearms,
PROVIDED THAT SUCH SHOW OR EVENT IS NOT LOCATED ON PROPERTY OWNED BY THE
