Will this be getting rid of that 5 round magazine limit too?


There is a G-D!
The fee is $ 340.00 for handguns and $ 140.00 for long guns. The fees for the long guns funds the Police pension plan. After the state safe act is found to be illegal, the people of nyc should sue for registering our long guns illegally, and get our fees back going back to Mayor Lindsey. In other words, Our rifles are no longer the property of the government.


@ipsjck the NRA is involved I guarantee you that.HBH


What NY needs to do is vote that bloomberg jew out of office and that cuomo piece of shit too.HBH


Where’s the NRA support for this law suite


I lived in New York City for several decades. The fee for licensing handguns was $175 every other year for the rest of my life. The idea was to keep the poor (blacks) from having guns. Didn’t work very well.


About time NY State!!!
