NY SAFE Act

The SAFE Act prevents criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from buying guns, cracks down on illegal guns and bans only the most dangerous assault weapons.

The legislation includes provisions that protect and preserve law-abiding citizens’ right to bear arms and does not restrict New Yorkers' ability to buy, sell, keep or use guns.
