ABINANTI -- read once and referred to the Commit- tee on Codes AN ACT to amend the penal law, in relation to a ban on undetectable firearms, undetectable firearm receivers and undetectable ammunition magazines 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 BAN ON UNDETECTABLE FIREARMS, UNDETECTABLE FIREARM RECEIVERS AND UNDETECTABLE AMMUNITION MAGAZINES. 1.
