Gun Violence- New York

New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Applauds Albany Common Council's Passage of Firearm Safe Storage Law

Albany, NY – September 2, 2015 – This evening the Albany Common Council passed a law requiring the safe storage of firearms and ammunition. New Yorkers Against Gun Violence applauds the passage of this law, which is designed to prevent unintentional shootings, suicides, homicides and gun thefts.

The law requires any person who owns or is custodian of a firearm to safely store it in a locked container or with a trigger lock when the firearm is out of his/her immediate possession or control. In addition, the law requires retailers selling firearms to post a notice that notifies purchasers of the safe storage law and the penalties incurred if the law is violated.
