Ammo Control Could Affect Youth Shooting Sports


A New York lawmaker is urging the state’s Governor to take a second look at a looming mandatory background check law for ammunition transfers. 

High school trap and clays team coaches, registered with the state as an “Organizational Keeper of Ammunition” for the sake of compliance, received letters earlier this month from the State Police advising them to register with the new NYS NICS office and set up a method of payment for the background check fees – $9 for each firearm transfer and $2.50 for each transfer of ammunition. This is on top of the $.05 per round special excise tax to fund shadowy “gun violence” research plus the 8 percent sales tax on ammo sales that the state already clears.
