ALBANY - New York State will be changing its newly toughened gun law to allow semiautomatic handguns for Hollywood purposes.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he will make an exception to the ban against military-style rifles and high-capacity handguns for the sets of TV shows and movies. The change is an effort to keep the production industry in the state.

Lawmakers must also quickly fix an error that would put police officers carrying high-capacity magazines in violation of the law.
