State Senate GOP looking to change gun law
ALBANY Senate Republicans are trying to scale back parts of the landmark gun control regulations rushed into law after the Newtown school massacre.
Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos says his conference is looking to change the law’s limit of seven bullets in magazines that commonly hold 10. He says one change might be to lift the limit inside a gun owner’s home.
Skelos says Republicans are also looking at other provisions sought by legal gun owners concerned about protecting their homes and families.
Skelos’ comments Monday come a week after some Republicans told The Associated Press they want to change the law, which drew two of the largest protest rallies Albany has seen in recent years.
The Senate has an opportunity to force some revisions because the bill requires several fixes.
