NY State Hollow Point Restrictions?

I retired officer and friend, today, informed me that NY has followed the NJ route in banning hollowpoints for carry except active duty LEOs.

If so, It's the first I'm hearing of it and I can't imagine how this could have slipped past me. The internet is inconclusive and I'm tempted to write it off as yet another internet rumor.

Any input on this? Thanks.

Something as major as this as this would have caused waves throughout the NE states adjacent to NYS. So I'm also unaware of this to be correct information.
Although many good citizens own and carry guns, keeping communities safe still fall on those who carry badges.

In a gun fight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.

Still legal as far as I know. Usually when this sort of thing happens, there is an uproar in the NRA and I haven't seen anything.

Nothing about this has come from my dept. so I'm going with 'rumor' on this one.

It's been posted on a few forums, and the resounding answer is rumor. Makes no sense to me why any state would do it since there would be less collateral damage.

Just a rumor. I am a delegate for my club to the Sullivan County Sportsmen's Federation and any and all gun legislation is discussed ad nauseum at each meeting. The local NRA rep would have pounced on this one, for sure.

You were one of the people here who got me going into shooting.

No, there has been no change in NYS Penal Code, or NYC Administrative Code, or changes to NY Environmental Law, or changes to laws in any of the major cities (Rochester, Albany, White Plains, Yonkers, Buffalo), or to any of the laws on Suffolk or Nassau Counties that indicate such a law in on the books.
