Nassau lawmakers split on gun-crime registry

Nassau lawmakers split on gun-crime registry – A bill introduced last week by Democrats in the Nassau County Legislature would create an online database of all individuals convicted of gun-related crimes, including the offender’s photo, home address and employer.  But Republicans in the legislative majority said they will not call a vote on the bill because they say Nassau does not have jurisdiction over gun laws.  The Nassau County Gun Offenders Registration Act would require defendants convicted of offenses involving a firearm to register their information with county police and to keep the data updated for four years.
