New York Bans Semi-Auto Rifles, High-Cap Magazines

January 15, 2013  | 

New York is set to become the first state to enact stricter gun control laws after the Newtown, Conn., school shooting on Dec. 14.

The state Assembly passed a bill to bolster New York's ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines today after the state Senate approved the bill Monday, reports USA Today. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to sign a package of tougher gun measures into law soon.

In addition to requiring universal background checks for all gun and ammunition sales, the bill includes an immediate ban on semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and pistols with a "military-style feature," such as a flash suppressor or a bayonet mount.

The legislation would also include the "Webster provision," a life-without-parole sentence for anyone found to have killed a first responder.
