New legislation aimed at reducing gun violence in BX, city approved
The City Council signed off on new legislation Wednesday aimed at reducing gun violence in the Bronx and city.
One of the bills calls for a gun offender registry, including hundreds convicted of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree. Another bill would ban coloration kits used to paint guns to look like toys. A third bill included in the legislation would limit all handgun purchases to one every three months.
The package of bills was introduced by Mayor Bloomberg (R-NY) in June.
