NYPD to Registered Long Gun Owners: Surrender or Modify Your Weapon, or Take It Out of New York City

Enforcing a 2010 law limiting capacity of long guns to five rounds

|

The New York City Police Department is taking aim at owners of certain shotguns and rifles, telling them all long guns with more than a five-round capacity must be turned in, altered or taken out of town.

The first option for the letter's recipient is to, "Immediately surrender your Rifle and/or Shotgun to your local police precinct, and notify this office of the invoice number. The firearm may be sold or permanently removed from the City of New York thereafter."
