Gun laws in New York and Connecticut will see changes in the New Year.

Nearly a year after passage of New York State’s new gun law, dealer sales of AR-15 semi-automatic rifles have ended in New York and arrest data show more than 1,000 gun possession charges in New York City were boosted from misdemeanors to felonies.

Fifty nine people have been charged statewide with misdemeanors for possessing large-capacity magazines or having more than seven bullets loaded in a magazine.
