ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — State police say New York ammunition sellers will have to register Jan. 15, though requirements for record-keeping and background checks won't kick in until the agency establishes a computer system for them.

Asked when that's expected, spokeswoman Darcy Wells says the work is being done "as expeditiously as possible."

The law enacted this year banned large-capacity magazines, required federal background checks for private gun sales and banned selling some popular semi-automatic rifles while requiring current owners to register them by next April 15.

Wells says the law also requires all ammunition sales as of Jan. 15to take place face-to-face facilitated by a licensed dealer.

Once the database is established, she says dealers will have to record transactions and report them. The law requires dates, names, ages, occupations and residences of buyers and sellers.

    A woman charged with buying guns for a convicted felon who later used them to kill two volunteer firefighters in an ambush was convicted Tuesday of falsifying business records. A state Supreme Court jury in Rochester found 25-year-old Dawn Nguyen, of the town of Greece, guilty because she lied when she said on a gun purchase form that she was buying the weapons for her own use.
