New York Approves Even More Extreme Gun Control Laws

By: Teresa Mull

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo just made the state even more unfriendly to gun owners.
The Democrat & Chronicle reports:

New York will require a 30-day waiting period for people who want to buy a gun in the state and are not immediately approved through the federal background check system.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law Monday. He also signed a bill that will close a loophole in existing law that allowed the ownership or sale of so-called bump stocks…

Cuomo signed another bill this week to make the “making, selling, transporting or possessing 3-D-printed guns or other undetectable firearms” illegal, reports the New York Daily News.

These new Second Amendment violations come in a year in which New York passed a red flag gun confiscation law.

And they just keep coming. According to the Chronicle,

Some bills have yet to be signed by Cuomo, but are expected to be in the coming weeks, his office said.

One would prevent teachers or anyone "other than a security officer, school resource officer, or law enforcement officer to carry a firearm on school grounds."

Another bill would ban undetectable guns, including 3D-printed guns, from being manufactured and sold in New York.

Other bills expected to head to Cuomo's desk in the near term include directing State Police to develop local gun buyback programs and requiring the safe storage of guns in the home.
