mail order ammunition repealed?
« on: March 08, 2017, 07:28:13 PM »
Did I Miss something some place? Was the mail order part of the safe act repealed? I ask because I was emailed from Buds gun shop with them stating this

 Thank You, NEW YORK!
We appreciate having great customers like YOU!
We understand that some of your state's restrictions can make it difficult for you to purchase the guns, ammo and accessories you want.
As an FFL dealer, those same restrictions prevent us from shipping certain items to you; however, we ARE currently shipping ammunition and ammunition components to your state. We can ship to your local dealer for them to transfer to you, ''or ship direct to your home or business'', whichever you prefer.

  In trying to research the topic  I came across this WHICH STATES asFOLLOWS---

NY Safe Act - Online Ammunition Sales

Just mere days after celebrating our great nation’s independence, Republicans have taken a huge step forward for Second Amendment supports and making substantial changes to New York’s SAFE Act by fortifying an obligatory “memorandum of understanding”(M.O.U). State Senator James L. Seward has pushed for change since the 2013 when the SAFE act was originally sanctioned.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has agreed to suspend plans for background checks for ammunition sales in New York and allow internet sales of ammunition, changing part of the NY Safe Act, according to state Sen. James Seward.

“While I will continue to work for full repeal of the poorly crafted, over-reaching NY-SAFE Act, this is a significant accomplishment—and constitutes the only modifications that have been made to this law since it was enacted two years ago over my objection”. Seward has continually stated that the database for ammunition was faulty and "fraught with problems since it was first conceived," and be removing this aspect, it will prevent any future money from being squandered. With the backing and support of Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and Jim Malatras, director of state operations, this can only be considered a big win for both the State of New York and for its private citizens. The focus of these changed laid in two parts “The two provisions that will be changed are both related to ammunition. The MOU, which was signed by New York State Director of Operations James Malatras and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, puts an end to the portion of the act that would establish a database and require those who purchase ammunition to undergo a background check. It also'' ends the moratorium on on-line purchases of ammunition”.

 for the full memo

 Is this article stating the mail ordering of ammunition was unbanned?? It's all I can find on the topic, hoping someone here may have some idea on the matter.
Thank you.

From what I have read up on this you can buy ammo online and have it shipped to a local ffl and then they can transfer it to you. There is a list of dealers online .They charge a fee, some were penny's per round or buy the box .But you can definitely have ammo shipped to ny

Sen. James "Seward’s release said a ban on the Internet sale of ammunition has been lifted. Cuomo’s office said that is not the case, and a reading of the MOU does not show any changes to that provision."

I've seen nothing since to contradict this.
