Print Meet the Gun Laws

After the tragedy at Newtown, everyone looked for ways to prevent gun violence. One way was by making laws. In 2013, a law called the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (NY SAFE Act) was passed by New York State’s Legislature.

To figure out what this complicated law really means, students in College Now’s Research Methods Class at City College of Technology along with CUP teaching artist Becky Slogeris investigated the major points of the new NY SAFE Act. To find out, students interviewed Robert Feldstein, who works on criminal justice policy in Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office. Using what they found out, the class created a brochure that broke down each part of the law.
