ARTICLE III, Firearms [Adopted 5-15-1989]
§ 193-13. Findings and declaration. The Common Council of the City of Albany finds and declares that the proliferation and use of assault weapons pose and present a threat to the health, safety, welfare and security to the citizens of Albany.
§ 193-14. Scope and intent. As used herein, "assault weapon" generally means a firearm of such a nature and with such a high rate of fire and/or capacity for firepower that its function as a legitimate sports or recreational firearm is substantially outweighed by the danger that it can be used to kill and injure human beings. While it is the intent, then, of this legislation to restrict the use and possession of assault weapons, it is not the intent of the Common Council to place restrictions on the use of those firearms which are primarily designed and intended for hunting, target practice or other legitimate sports or recreational activities.
§ 193-15. Assault weapons.
As used herein, "assault weapon" includes any of the following or their copies:
