A federal judge in December upheld most of the New York Safe Act, the state's new gun control law, rejecting arguments that its bans on large-capacity magazines and the sale of popular semi-automatic rifles violate Second Amendment rights.
The judge says those provisions are constitutional because they're related to achieving an "important governmental interest" in public safety. The law was adopted following the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.
The decision is being challenged in the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
