Low assault-weapon registration stats suggest low compliance with Gov. Cuomo’s landmark SAFE Act gun control law
Low assault-weapon registration stats suggest low compliance with Gov. Cuomo’s landmark SAFE Act gun control law - Less than 45,000 assault-style weapons have been registered in New York state since a landmark gun control act went into in effect in 2013, state records released Tuesday show, suggesting that Empire State gun-owners are largely ignoring one of the signature elements of the watershed legislation.
Is This The Gun Case The U.S. Supreme Court Will Take?
Is This The Gun Case The U.S. Supreme Court Will Take? - Since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Heller v. D.C. (2008) that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms and then ruled in McDonald v. Chicago (2010) that this right also restricts state and local governments, the high court has opted not to hear cases that might further define gun rights. This has been a little surprising, as some lower courts have actually produced majority opinions that are critical of decisions reached by other courts. Such conflicts at the circuit level typically force the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in. A California case—Peruta v. San Diego County—might soon force the U.S. Supreme Court to settle some of the constitutional disputes.

"We typically don't get more than one a day, but we probably have at least 12 this week," said Mary Lavorando, of the Clinton County Clerk's Office in Plattsburgh. "It seems like more people have been picking up applications," she said Friday afternoon. "But it can take eight or nine weeks for approval. So it's kind of like locking the barn door after the horse is out."
