In New York, people under the age of 21 will no longer be able to buy semi-automatic guns
New York, June 08: In the US, New York Governor Kathy Hochul has signed a new law in the wake of increasing incidents of shootings, under which people under the age of 21 will no longer be able to buy semi-automatic guns in the province. New York is the first province in America to take such a big step to prevent incidents of shootings. Hochul signed 10 public safety bills, one of which would require ‘microstamping’ on new firearms.
hard to buy guns
Let us tell you that 10 black people were killed in the racist massacre at the Buffalo supermarket. Keeping these things in mind, the State Senate passed a law related to possessing weapons like modern guns. With the enactment of this new law, incidents of gun-killing people in the city will be curbed.
crime will decrease
The governor expressed hope that with the implementation of this law, there will be a reduction in gun crimes. Under another amended law, the court has been empowered to temporarily take possession of guns from persons who may be a danger to themselves or others. Hochul said in a press conference held in the Bronx, ‘In New York, we are taking strong steps. We are tightening the laws so that guns can be kept away from dangerous people.
People die in firing
Every year in the United States, a large number of people are killed by a bullet fired from a gun of crazy people. More recently, 21 people, including 19 children, 2 teachers, were killed in a shooting incident at Rob Elementary School located in Uvalde, Texas. The shooter was identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos. This eccentric young man was also 18 years old. There is probably less recognition of right and wrong at this age. For this reason, taking a wrong decision, he entered a school and killed 21 people.
Strict law needed across America!
In America, whenever people die from dangerous weapons like guns, the government starts negotiating changes in the laws related to it. However, all these things did not stop the killings. Even after this, there were many such incidents where many people became victims of gunshots at the same time.
Tough laws for keeping arms in New York
Strict laws have been made in New York regarding the possession of weapons. These laws were passed in the wake of the 2013 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Let us tell you that 26 children and employees were killed in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since then the law related to gun possession in the city has been changed. At the same time, US President Joe Biden has called for new gun control legislation, including a ban on assault weapons.
New York’s Buffalo Supermarket Massacre
Governor Cathy Hochul was deeply hurt by the Buffalo supermarket shootings in New York, as the area is her home town. The governor and other Democratic leaders controlling the state government called on other states to take action. Several areas, including Democratic-led California and New Jersey, are considering amending gun laws.
the law will be strengthened
Governor Kathy Hochul said the Red Flag law in New York would be expanded to allow confiscation of weapons from potentially dangerous people. Let us tell you that it is very difficult to get a license for a semi-automatic rifle in New York. Such weapons will now be included in the list of laws where people will have to go through a series of procedures to get such guns. Let us tell you that the age limit for gun permit is more than 21 years. Those younger than this will not be given a license to own a gun. permit will not be granted.
