New NY Law appears to limit # of firearms that can be owned

A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree when:

...
or
(5) (i) Such person possesses three or more firearms; or
(ii) such
person possesses a firearm and has been previously convicted of a felony
or a class A misdemeanor defined in this chapter within the five years
immediately preceding the commission of the offense and such possession
did not take place in the person's home or place of business; or

Please tell me that I'm wrong.....

You are wrong.

Owning ok. Carrying around not allowed.

I'm concerned about another part there.
What are the details of the five year limit for felonies and class A misdemeanors?
I was convicted of a class A misdemeanor in dec. 2008. Does that mean I can't own firearms untill dec. 2013?

I've legally restored all rights to own firearms in feb. 2012

So I can't take more than two firearms when I go upstate hunting or to the range?

Edit:
Thanks for the clarification below Dove

We discussed this in the original thread about the new NY laws. The short of it is this:

-These limits were already in the NY laws. They haven't been changed in any way.

-"Firearm" basically means handgun.

-There are exemptions for licensed handguns.

So, basically, it is nothing more than a tack-on charge for someone possessing handgun(s) without a license. 3+ gets you third degree. 10+ gets you first degree.
