We don’t know what is in the final bill, but these were the proposals:

Stronger Gun Laws: A Plan to Protect New Yorkers
Require Universal Background Checks on the Sale of all Guns

Require all gun sales, including sales between individuals, to go through a licensed fire arms dealer where a background check can be performed and proper records kept.

Require criminal background checks on all gun dealer employees handling guns.
Strengthen Assault Weapons Ban

Broaden the definition of assault weapon to ban any weapon that has one prohibited characteristic rather than two as specified in current law. Include a provision for the Superintendent of State Police to review new assault weapons and add them to a list of banned weapons if they meet statutory criteria. Currently New York City has such a ban.

Ban possession and sale

no grandfathering.
Strengthen High Capacity Ammunition Magazine Ban

Ban possession and sale of all high capacity ammunition magazines over 10 bullets.
Micro stamping Legislation to Help Law Enforcement Solve Gun Crimes

Require all semi-automatic handguns

sold or delivered in New York to be equipped with anew technology that imprints a unique code onto the shell casings every time a gun is fired,so that guns can be traced from shell casings found at crime scenes.

Require Gun Licenses to be Renewed Every 5 Years

Require 5-year renewable licenses for all those owning handguns. Currently licenses are only required to be renewed in New York City, on Long Island and in Westchester.
Improve Gun Dealer Regulations

Require gun dealers to have stringent recordkeeping, submit inventory to law enforcement,store firearms safely, and report lost or stolen firearms.
Regulate Ammunition Sales

Require background checks or showing of a permit on all ammunition sales. Look into types of ammunition sold if one does not have a handgun permit.
One Gun a Month

Limit people to the purchase of no more than one handgun a month.
