Confiscation of “assault weapons”
Confiscation [of] ten round clips
Statewide database for ALL Guns
Continue to allow pistol permit holder’s information to be replaced to the public
Label semiautomatic shotguns with more than 5 rounds or pistol grips as “assault weapons”
Limit the number of rounds in a magazine to 5 and confiscation and forfeiture of banned magazines
Limit possession to no more than two (2) magazines
Limit purchase of guns to one gun per person per month
Require re-licensing of all pistol permit owners
Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years
State issued pistol permits
Micro-stamping of all guns in New York State
Require licensing of all gun ammo dealers
Mandatory locking of guns at home
Fee for licensing, registering weapons
Apparently, they do not want the list below circulated because it could "dampen the enthusiasm on compromise." Since we do not know what an Assault Weapon is, exactly, it seems confiscation of almost any gun is a dim possibility. Including many shotguns, I suppose. I'll leave it up to you all to decide what the above actually means. Not sure how many people would pass the "proposed" handgun renewal every year.
I'll say this: there are those in power that want ALL weapons taken away, period. It has not happened yet and I am sure it likely will not happen. Some here claim that is not going to happen and then I see these kinds of ideas floated and it shows what some really want.
