The Sullivan Law (or The Sullivan Act) is New York's controversial gun control law. Not only does it regulate guns, it regulates daggers, knives and razors. Named for its' sponser, State Senator Timothy Sullivan, it has been in force since 1911. For handguns, The Sullivan Law is a may issue law, meaning police departments in New York City and Upstate have the discretion to issue permits. Very tough to obtain one in the five boroughs.
