The New York State Senate has approved a measure that would make retired police officers exempt from ammunition restrictions contained in the gun control law enacted in January.

The exemption was passed early Friday morning by a vote of 49 to 14.

Some Republican senators voted against the change, contending the entire gun law should be repealed.

The exemption for retired law enforcement officers had been approved by the state Assembly in May.

Police union leaders have been pushing for the change.

Senator Thomas Libous, a Binghamton Republican, voted against the proposed exemption.
