A06088 Memo:

submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
SPONSOR: Rosenthal (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to age requirements for gun shows   PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to protect minors under the age of fourteen from exposure to deadly weaponry at gun shows.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends subdivision 1 of section 896 of the general business law, as added by chapter 189 of the laws of 2000, by adding a new para- graph (d). Section two sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: As the gun industry prepares a public campaign to broaden the appeal of guns, it is important that we establish reasonable age limits for admis- sion to gun shows by children. Within New York State and other areas of jurisdiction, we have myriad regulations that seek to protect minors from exposure to certain potentially dangerous situations and influ- ences. For example, a minor is restricted from watching films or playing certain video games that portray deadly weaponry and gunplay. Currently, however, minors of any age may gain unfettered access to a gun show. As our State continues to look for solutions to violence involving guns, we must begin by limiting the exposure of young children to these weap- ons and their capabilities.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
