Out-of-State Guns Used in Most NY Crimes

New York’s restrictive gun laws have triggered a rash of gun sales from other states, a federal report shows, Newsday reports.

Because the state prohibits machine guns and possessing handguns without a license, weapons are brought into New York from elsewhere, according to a report by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms.

“We call New York a market state because it’s so highly regulated that it’s easier to get a gun in another state and bring it back,” said ATF group supervisor Robert Cucinelli, according to Newsday.

Importing guns from other states is so common that most guns recovered from New York crimes last year originated from states with fewer legal restrictions, Newsday reported.
