TheBlaze has detailed the New York City Police Department’s effort to eliminate shotguns and rifles with capacities of more than a five rounds, saying such firearms must be handed over, modified or carted outside city limits:

Now Fox News reports that gun-rights advocates, as well as one New York state elected official, are angry over the notices, saying that the city is aiming badly with them.
“A gun collector who never fired a gun in his life, but has a few antiques might have to get them altered,” Tom King, president of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, told Fox. “These are not the people law enforcement should be targeting.”
“We think it’s an abuse of power by the NYPD,” he said. His organization spent $400,000 on a lawsuit challenging the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act which was signed in January by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
More from Fox News:
The SAFE Act was the first law in the nation prompted by the December 2012 killing of 20 first-graders and six educators in Newtown, Conn. Its passage was seen as a victory for gun-control advocates because it expands a ban on military-style weapons, requires mental health professionals to report threats, limits magazines to seven bullets, taxes bullets and creates a registry.
