ALBANY – A downstate New York lawmaker aims to strengthen the state’s already strict gun laws.

Democratic Assemblyman Felix Ortiz introduced three new measures this week.

The first, wants to tackle so-called ghost guns, which are guns that come in parts and lack any identifying features. The bill would require each gun part to have a serial number.

The second bill requires companies making ammunition to use a coding system on all firearms sold in the state.

The third measure would place GPS tracking on guns so they can be located when stolen.
