MYRIE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules -- committee discharged, bill amended, ordered reprinted as amended and recommitted to said committee AN ACT to amend the general business law, in relation to the dangers to safety and health and creation of a public nuisance cause by the sale, manufacturing, importing and marketing of firearms THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature hereby finds that the illegal use of firearms not only constitutes a public nuisance as declared in article 400 of the penal law, but that the effects of such nuisance poses specific harm to New Yorkers based large- ly on their zip code and certain immutable characteristics such as race and ethnicity. Illegal firearm violence has disproportionately affected urban neighborhoods in the state despite stringent state and local laws against the illegal possession of firearms while, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives statistics, 74% of firearms used in crimes in New York are purchased outside of New York. Thus, the legislature further finds that given the ease at which legal firearms flow into the illegal market, and given the specific harm ille- gal firearm violence causes certain New Yorkers, those responsible for the sale, manufacture, or marketing of firearms may be held liable for the public nuisance caused by such activities. § 2. The general business law is amended by adding a new article 39-dddd to read as follows: ARTICLE 39-DDDD SALE, MANUFACTURING, IMPORTING AND MARKETING OF FIREARMS SECTION 898-A. DEFINITIONS. 898-B. DANGERS TO SAFETY AND HEALTH. 898-C. PUBLIC NUISANCE. 898-D. ENFORCEMENT. 898-E. PRIVATE RIGHT OF ACTION. § 898-A. DEFINITIONS.
