ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York authorities and a major gun show operator have worked out new rules to make sure weapon sales are properly tracked and done safely.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says Friday the "Model Gun Show Procedures" will be in place for this weekend's show at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany.

That show is run by the New York State Arms Collectors Association Inc., which also puts on the Syracuse Gun Show at the state fairgrounds in April.

A key provision is making sure all guns private sellers bring to the shows are tagged and then checked later to determine if they were sold and confirm a background check was done on the buyer.

The rules also limit the number of entrance doors to improve monitoring.
