The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a warning to regional residents about an ongoing scam. Authorities say scammers have been posing as members of law enforcement and trying to get people to pay for missing jury duty.

Starting next Wednesday, September 13, gun retailers will be required to submit background checks on ammunition sales to New York State Police instead of directly to the FBI. This is part of gun legislation Governor Hochul signed last year. State police will now contact the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is operated by the FBI, after a gun retailer reaches out to them for a background check. A sale can only be complete once a “proceed” response is received. Someone who fails an ammunition background check will have 30 days to appeal, according to state police. There will be a $9 fee for a firearm background check and a $2.50 payment for an ammunition check. Fees will fund the state’s background check system.
