Banned firearms for TV, movies OK under NY gun law
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York wants to make sure running gun battles on the streets of Manhattan can still be seen on the big screen.
State officials say they'll change the state's newly toughened gun law so military-style rifles and high-capacity handguns can be used on the sets of TV shows and movies.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislators say Wednesday they'll exempt the productions from bans they quickly passed in the aftermath of the Newtown school massacre.
They must also quickly fix another error that could put police officers carrying high-capacity magazines in violation of the law.
The need for a cleanup bill means the fight over the law may not be over. Thousands of opponents of the new restrictions are expected to descend on Albany Thursday as legislators consider additional amendments.
