According to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) released on Friday, the Cuomo Administration and the Senate Republicans have agreed to suspend certain provisions of the state’s 2013 gun control law, the SAFE Act, which was enacted in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The MOU, which was signed by Director of State Operations Jim Malatras and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, includes an agreement to suspend the provisions of the SAFE Act that created a statewide database for ammunition purchasers to undergo a background check and ban the sale of ammunition over the Internet.   It also stipulates that no state money will be used to maintain the ammunition purchaser database.
