NY SAFE Act Registration Deadline is Tuesday
Starting Tuesday, owners of guns considered assault weapons by New York will be faced with a choice: Register those firearms with the state, or potentially face a felony charge.
 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers approved the SAFE Act’s tougher gun laws last year. The law defined guns with certain “military-style features” as assault weapons, and required their owners to register those weapons with state police.
 
Some assault weapon owners have threatened to ignore the requirement to register.
 
People who violate the law’s registration requirement could face charges, but local law enforcement say they aren’t looking for potential violations.
 
Police say gun law violations are usually found when officers are investigating other issues.
 
If a gun owner knowingly violates the new registration requirement, they could face either a misdemeanor or a felony charge.
 
The law allows for either charge, and state police say it will be up to prosecutors to decide which to apply.
