Critics: SAFE Act is Cuomo’s “Obamacare website” – Criticism of New York’s gun-control law is persisting after State Police quietly postponed plans to start a system of background checks Jan. 15 for customers buying ammunition. As part of the January law, stores were going to be required to obtain details about anyone buying ammunition starting Jan. 15. Sellers were going to have to keep names, addresses, details of purchases and other personal information about ammunition purchases to be part of a statewide database. But State Police are delaying the start, The Buffalo News first reported Friday. State Police did not provide a comment today on the postponement.
