Penalties for Gun Crimes in New York

In order to legally possess a firearm in the state of New York, you must obtain a state gun license. If you are found in unlawful possession of a firearm, it is considered a Class A misdemeanor that is punishable by a jail sentence of up to one year and a maximum fine of $1,000.

Simple unlawful possession of a firearm with a prior criminal record, or unlawful possession of an assault weapon, is a Class D felony. A Class D felony is punishable by a prison sentence of up to seven years.
