Gun Store Warning Label Law

Legislator Ruth Walter has drafted a proposed local law requiring all gun dealers in Westchester County to post signage intended to warn customers of the dangers ownership of a gun poses near the point of sale.

The purpose of the bill is, “To better inform potential buyers of firearms in Westchester County of the dangers of owning a gun in the home, which can lead to accidental discharge, preventable suicide, unintended death of a child, other household members, or death during a domestic dispute.”
