The Albany Times Union reported on the new law.
First offenses will be violations carrying a fine of $250 or up to 15 days in jail so long as no one is injured or killed. A second offense — or first that causes injury or death — will be a misdemeanor punishable by a $1,000 fine and year in jail
Furthermore the gun owner is liable for the full criminal responsibility of any crimes committed by the weapons if stolen.
There is a similar effort to pass a similar law statewide that has been stalled for three years.
