Image 5 of 10


NEW YORK: It requires state licenses for all dealers and background checks for all purchasers at gun shows. New York gun owners must report lost or stolen guns, a requirement designed to curb firearm trafficking. New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg holds a press conference at Jersey City City Hall for the organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns in April 2007. Bloomberg has teamed up with mayors all over the country in an effort to ban illegal guns and make gun tracing data more easily accessible for local and state police departments.
