NY Senate votes to tweak landmark gun law

The Associated Press reports:

The New York Senate has endorsed changes to the landmark gun control law passed in the wake of the 2012 elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The revisions passed by the Senate Monday would allow a family member to inherit certain types of semi-automatic firearms when their owner dies and make pistol permit applications exempt from open records laws.

Monday’s Senate vote was 35-26. The legislation has little chance of passing the Assembly, which is controlled by Democrats.
