Ammo in NYC

I recently read that purchasing ammo in NYC requires a CC PERMIT. That is worse even than CA! Here(CA), it is illegal to carry a loaded magazine even if there is no pistol. But anyone can buy a box of ammo.

Not to mention the new laws on buying ammo are...

The law requires that as of January 15, 2014
all ammunition transfers take place
in person, including internet sales, which must be
facilitated by a New York State
ammunition seller.

And...

When the recently postponed background check for the
purchase of ammunition becomes
effective there will be a $10 charge for each back
ground check. According to the NY State
Police the system will be up shortly and they state
the $10 fee will soon be raised to $20..

Unless they updated the law on buying ammo, this is the law on buying ammo in New York..

Ammunition dealers are required to do background checks, similar to those for gun buyers. Dealers are required to report all sales, including amounts, to the state. Internet sales of ammunition are allowed, but the ammunition will have to be shipped to a licensed dealer in New York state for pickup. Ammunition background checks were scheduled to begin January 15, 2014,[11] but were put on hold indefinitely because the required "seamless" technology that would not inconvenience vendors or customers could not be put in place. The superintendent of state police, charged with creating such technology, is working on development, but a release date is still unknown.[12] So while out-of-state vendors are required to ship ammunition to a NYS licensed dealer, the buyer can still pick it up with no check of any kind required, or walk into any registered ammunition dealer (now required under the act to sell ammunition) and buy ammunition providing he/she is over 18.

Why in the hell would anyone want to live in New York? Yes, I've been there several time. Up state is beautiful. Connecticut and Vermont are beautiful too. But between the crazy politicians and the bitter winters, there ain't no way.

Jim and Annie, New your is MUCH worse than CA,at least for now. I do not see it getting better in states like N.Y. and CA. I want to move to NM. That is supposed to the "worst" state,as judged by anti-gun advocates.
18 months ago, I had never fired a hand gun. They are as addictive as heroin. Not that I have experienced heroin.

I think it has to be "home" for anyone to like it. I will say that, in no other city in the U.S. can one find the ARTS as easy to access as in NYC. I used to go to classical concerts opera and plays at least twice per week. I never had to find a parking space, 'cause I took public transportation. In L.A. To go to a play is a big deal and expensive.

If they keep raising the cost of ammo with taxes and fees, you can expect to see the day when the "hood rats" will kill a policeman just to get the ammo from his duty belt!!!!
