New York reverses ammunition restrictions

ALBANY – In a rollback of key provisions in his landmark gun control law, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo agreed Friday to suspend sections of his SAFE Act covering ammunition sales.

Under the agreement with State Senate Republicans, New York will suspend indefinitely its efforts to require background checks for ammunition purchasers and to create a database of buyers.

The state also will lift the ban on Internet sales of ammunition under the SAFE Act.

That sounds promising, but it is a bunch of politicians (many of them untrustworthy at best) talking about what they will do. A "suspension: is not the same as a “repeal” so who knows what they really will do.

Wait until you see a laws that has been passed and signed and the effective date before anyone celebrates. The devils are often in the details.
