They are just getting ridiculous...
New York State Senator José M. Serrano (D-29) is pushing legislation that will require retailers to label a traditional gun which lacks a disabling device as a “child operated firearm.”
The legislation–Senate Bill S3444–then bans the sale of any “child operated firearm.”
According to the official New York State Senate website, S3444 “Proscribes persons, firms or corporations engaged in retail business of selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated firearms.”
The summary of S3444 says:
Prohibits persons, firms or corporations engaged in the retail business of selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated firearms; defines “child operated firearm” to mean a pistol or revolver manufactured 1 year after the effective date of these provisions which does not contain a childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into the design of such pistol or revolver.
The test for whether a pistol or revolver is child-proofed is whether the gun has a “childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into [it]” which is sufficient to prevent “an average five-year-old” from operating the firearm.
