NY State Police Hotline Answers Gun Law Questions
New York State Police members are going to answer questions people have about the recently-enacted gun law.
A hotline is to go into operation today to provide New Yorkers with accurate information about new gun regulations.
The number is 855-LAW-GUNS.
The line is to be answered Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
Governor Cuomo's office also has established a website to provide details about the law's provisions.
The website is nysafeact.com.
Gun owners and licensed dealers will be able to read some "frequently asked questions" that have been compiled and answered by experts on the law.
There's also a section explaining what's considered an assault weapon under New York state law.
The site includes photos of weapons, banned features and a list of some of the weapons prohibited based on the law's language.
