New York’s gun laws are complicated and the severity of the possible sentence varies based upon a lot of factors. The possession of a firearm is a misdemeanor which is punishable by up to a year in jail. The possession of a firearm becomes a Class D felony when the person who possesses the weapon has previously been convicted of any crime. Possession of a firearm is also a Class D felony when one possesses three or more firearms, a firearm silencer, an assault weapon, a machine-gun or any other firearm or weapon simulating a machine-gun or which can be made into a machine gun. A person can also be convicted of a Class D felony if they knowingly possess a machine-gun, firearm, rifle or shotgun which has been defaced for the purpose of concealment or prevention of the detection of a crime or misrepresenting the identity of the weapon. Not only firearms are class D felonies but also the possession of a disguised gun or a large capacity ammunition feeding device.
