NY Bill A09340: Limit “Assault Weapon” Ammo Sales to 20 Rounds Every 4 Months


The law proposed by New York State Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon of Brooklyn would restrict "assault weapons" ammo to just 20 rounds every four months. Violate the law and it will be punishable by a Class E Felony.

(No that is not a misprint).

She wanted to originally propose restricting many more types of ammo. But there was a backlash to that proposal so she feels like this is a 'compromise'. This ranks up as one of the worst gun control proposals of all time.
