A bill that would repeal a few provisions of New York’s controversial gun law – the SAFE Act – heads to the state Assembly. But, that chamber is not likely to pass it.
It’s no secret the SAFE Act has been unpopular among pro-gun groups since its passage in 2013.
And Monday, the Republican-controlled Senate voted to get rid of certain pieces of the law. With their changes, family members could inherit semi-automatic guns when the owner dies. And it would ban background checks for people buying bullets.
