Recent New York assault weapons law: I need clear information.

New York enacted the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act. Where can I find some clear, non-looney, information on how this effects me and my firearms?

When NY passed this new law, I assumed I really would not be affected. While three (maybe four) of my firearms are on the banned list, they were all purchased before the 1994 ban. I filled out all the paperwork the dealer provided and didn't think NY's new law would really effect me.
But I got a shiver when I read the story of Nathan Haddad, who faces 35 years in prison after police found five unloaded 30 round magazines in his car.
I've got more than five high capacity magazines in the safe, and one of my main goals in life is staying out of prison.
I really need some clear information on what the law requires of me. The only information I've found is the law itself
, (which I couldn't decipher in a hundred years) or some really extreme sites that tell me to expect the black helicopters at any moment.
I can't be the only person who needs this information, but Google just points me to the crazy zone.
