    Post New ammo laws in 2014???

    I was at one of my local gun shops today picking up ammo and according to the guy that runs the place there are going to be new laws when it comes to ammo purchaseing in 2014. Anyone have a clue as to what this guy might be talking about?

    Further proof that millions of NY gun owners are going to be in for a big surprise come January if this provision is not struck.

    Well, let's hope that sellers of ammunition in PA don't react to restrictions on New Yorkers buying ammo the same way they reacted to the high cap mag provision. I was in a half a dozen gun shops in border counties in PA a few months ago and they all had signs - no high cap mag sales to NY residents.

    This thread wouldn't be nearly as funny if we just weren't talking about how many people are unaware of the ammunition laws which are coming....

    so does this mean that we have to go fill out paper work to buy ammo or does the dealer just call check your permit and call the NICS ?

    Who knows? Rumor has it that the FBI will not be allowing use of NICS for this provision; if that is true then it means NY is going to have to design and build their own system. How well do you think that is going to work?

    If this is news to you now you have been under a rock for the last eight months! One of many painful elements of the safe act! Imagine the surprise of all the fudds when they can't find a place to buy shotgun shells- the other thread regarding this ( in politics I think) may wake many people up to join the fight.

    Also, I believe if you order ammunition online, you have to ship it to your FFL.

    The only problem with this is that most FFL's own gun stores and want to sell their own ammunition to you at crazy prices. So its unlikely that a majority of them would allow you to do this.

    I was under he impression that the ammo purchase part of the Safe Act was not in the budget so it was on hold.

    I can see the FFL allowing ammo to be sent to their shop but they'll end up chargeing a fee.

    The safe act is one big snooze fest. they make all these laws but don't stop and think of the effects it has. look at the whole magazine issue it's a perfect example of them acting before thinking.

    To me I think it's going to just make more of us gun owners leave the state and cause problems for the officers incharge of it. They don't stop and think of the headache it will cause everyone. If you think about it this new law means that us gun owners have to wait to get our ammo and it also means that the state has to either employ new people or make those working there stay longer. All of which means the state has to pay more money which we don't have.

    I was under the impression that the SA part of the UNSAFE act was gone. I give up trying to figure this crap out. I'm outta here in December and I'm NEVER coming back to this communist POS state!! I'll defend the state I go to from NYS invasion!!!

    If I was in a gun shop and got IDed when buying a mag I'd leave out of spite.

    I don't. Some people aren't driving 2-3 hours to get to a shop and not know what's in stock or if they'll even sell to you.

    I wonder if out of state hunters will be able to purchase ammo in NY? Nawwww, Andy promised that the Safe Act wouldn't affect hunters.

    From what I believe I had read NYshooter1 said there was a agreement to strike down the ammo provision (the SA of SAFE). This recently was reneged on and as always the state "changed" their mind to f**k us. Basically it was going to be taken off the books because there was absolutely no way to fund it. They decided to leave it because although it wouldn't be set up, it still would discourage vendors selling and create confusion. So it'll be there, just not working. Which will cause to much hassle and make it impossible to buy ammo. Thanks a f**king lot NY... f* ck you too

    I was of the understanding that the monies needed to start up the database were denied by the legislature. When I read the SAFE act the ammo part, section 400.03 seller of ammunition, item 3 says that only AFTER the state police certifies the database is good to go will retailers have to use it. So I would take it to mean that no database, no background check. BUT....... being NYS, there has to be more. When I read item 2, it states that each and every transaction has to be recorded in a book that includes date, name, age, occupation and residence and amount and caliber. Can you imagine how big that book would be for Gander, Walmart, Dick's, etc. Wow...... To be clear, I am NOT an attorney, this is just me reading the text...... Maybe an attorney in this area can confirm/deny......
