Int. No. 889

 

By Council Members Cabrera, Barron, Koo, Mealy and Cohen

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to banning the sale of green lasers in New York City.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1.  Section 10-134.2 of Title 10 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision h to read as follows:

                     h. It shall be unlawful for any person to sell or offer for sale, or to possess with intent to sell or offer for sale, laser pointers that emit a green laser.  Transportation of green laser pointers through the city or the storage of green laser pointers in a warehouse or distribution center in the city that is closed to the public for purposes of retail sales outside the city does not violate this subdivision. 

                     § 2.  Subdivision h of Section 10-134.2 of Title 10 of the administrative code of the city of New York is re-lettered as subdivision i and as re-lettered is amended to read as follows::

[h.] i. Any person who violates subdivision b, c, [or] e or h of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Any person who violates subdivision d of this section shall be guilty of a violation for a first offense and a misdemeanor for all subsequent offenses. 

                     § 3. This local law shall take effect immediately.
