I know many people are worrying about the ammo portion of this law and it's January 2014 birth. I have seen a few post on blogs that the NICS, backround or whatever you want to call it is on hold. Well apparently it is, things that were planned couldn't be done so for now no backround or NICS type of check on the buyers end. The NYSP said however that portions of the law will still be in effect. Instead of the doing it on the buyers end it will be enforced on the sellers end. A person will have to register to sell ammo or be a NYS dealer in firearms. Those FFL01 / 07 etc that hold a NYS dealers license are autmoatically registered, the dealers or sellers will have to maintain a log with ammo info, and purchasers info. How it will be retained is yet to be announced but it will happen. I was given aome brief info on what it would be like and basically it sounds like the dealers current A&D book. Now the online portion is still in effect, if someone wants to sell from outside the state they have to register with the state, i.e. AIM Surplus would have to register with the NYSP then the ammo can only be shipped to a dealer or registered ammo seller. So the good is no backround FOR NOW, the bad everything stays and Jan is the magic date.
