New York state started a new website with a list of frequently asked questions that have been compiled and answered by experts on this new law.

On the site you will find a section on what is and is not considered an assault weapon. This includes photos of weapons, banned features, a list of some of the banned weapons, and those firearms that are not considered assault weapons.

There are also sections about magazines, antique guns and magazines, safe storage, dealers, and crimes.

Starting Monday, January 21, a new hotline will be answered by State Police during normal business hours Monday through Friday. The number is 1-855-LAW-GUNS or 1-855-529-4867.
