ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – The Cuomo administration is
launching a website to answer questions about the state's new gun
control measure signed into law this week.
The website helps navigate through the complex law. A phone information line is scheduled to start Monday.
The website will list the weapons that must be registered – officials say for free – under the law starting April 15.
Designated assault weapons must be registered within a year after that or owners face a misdemeanor charge.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo was criticized for negotiating
the provisions in private, then not releasing the details until just
before legislators voted.
Cuomo issued an order to suspend the three days' public review required of bill under the constitution.
