submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6522
 
SPONSOR: Stern
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to redefining the term "disguised gun" to include any rifle, pistol, shotgun or machine-gun resembling a toy gun and prohibiting the possession, manufacture or design thereof   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Amends the definition of disguised gun to include certain guns that are designed and intended to appear to be a toy gun.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: amends subdivision 20 of section 265.00 of the penal law, as added by chapter 378 of the laws of 1998. Section 2: amends section 265.10 of the penal law by adding a new subdi- vision 8. Section 3: sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Guns that are disguised to appear to be toy guns pose a real threat to the citizenry of this state.

Banning such guns is a logical extension of the ban on disguised guns.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019-2020: A.6947 - referred to codes 2017-2018: A.3606 - referred to codes 2015-2016: A.3413 - referred to codes 2013-2014: A.3485 - referred to codes 2011-2012: A.1014 - referred to codes 2009-2010: A.5078-A - passed the Assembly 2007-2008: A.2868 - passed the Assembly 2005-2006: A.895-A - passed the Assembly 2003-2004: A.100 - passed the Assembly 2001-2002: A.833 - passed the Assembly 1999-2000: A.8234 - passed the Assembly   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of November next succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
