Safe Act Deadline Approaching

Posted April 14th, 2014 @ 6:10am

(Albany, NY) -- Tomorrow is the deadline for New York state residents to register assault rifles that were legally purchased and are now banned under the NY SAFE Act.

The deadline is part of the law that classified many semi-automatic assault rifles as assault weapons.

Many gun rights activists are planning to ignore the law, while others plan to avoid registration by having their guns altered to bring them into compliance with the tough new law.
