New Restrictions On Buying Ammo Begin Today In NY

Today begins a new day for buying ammo in the state of New York.

As of today is illegal starting to buy ammunition unless a licensed dealer actually sees you. That means no more ordering ammo on the web, unless you pick it up from a licensed dealer. It’s part of a law pushed through a year ago by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, after the massacre of 20 children Newtown, Conn.

The law has taken effect in stages, banning the sale of some popular semi-automatic rifles. It also requires background checks on private gun sales
