The federal recommendations are due out any day now. I don't really think NY is going to be alone in its insanity for very long.

Not to mention the hit that legitimate business is going to take in NY. No more magazines that hold more than 7 rounds, no more common sport rifles like the 10/22s, lever actions are going to be problematic...

You're talking about an UPTICK in gun related crimes, though not necessarily violence related, and a downturn in businesses that can no longer sell popular guns or accessories in the state.

And the whole time, the crack dealer in Newburgh is making 0 attempts to register his guns or limit his magazine capacities.

All this legislation does is make legal, law-abiding gun owners in the state of NY accidental criminals with this legislation. Essentially they've been given a choice. Either register your weapon and have it not be transferable, or break the law and claim you no longer have said weapon. It's going to create a black market making it even harder to trace the weapons to crimes and hold people accountable. It's a classic example of prohibition-era "feel-good morality" laws creating the very problems they were attempting to prevent. The difference is that at the end of prohibition, it's biggest promoters realized it was a mistake that created organized crime as we know it and admitted that it was a failed experiment. Today, people are so entrenched in their political affiliations and products of a society where blame is couched in the term "accountability" that they'll never ever admit that their own legislation is what is going to cause there to be an uptake in black market sales in the state of NY.

This new round of gun control "discussion" is driving me crazy.
 
It's times like this where I get torn between my conservative and liberal head voices. Mostly because I detest the idea of a nanny state deciding what's best for the people against the majority rule.

Just wait until this stuff starts hitting the national scale. It seems to me that the vast majority of gun control legislation right now amounts to "Oh, I've never actually seen or held a gun but that one looks scary so ban it." At least if they went after pistols it would make sense-this is ignorance at its finest.

I think it's dumb, and clearly and attempt at just screwing legal gun owners. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm happy I live in NJ. The fact that the mag capacity laws apply to non-semi autos is just dumb, and the oddball number of seven is purely to cause unnecessary hassle to the gun owners. I feel bad for those with lever action rifles, Lee Enfield types, SKS', and any handgun that isn't a revolver or 1911. Although it's a good time for them to buy a real handgun now :D

He has to transfer them to you to do so, otherwise it's a federal felony.

Yeah, I read it, don't get me started.

Unreal.

Things like Ruger 10/22s and M1 Carbines are now classified as 'assault weapons'

And tubular magazines in lever actions and shotguns that hold more than 7 rounds are illegal.

As far as what I've got, No comment, though I should be pretty safe, most of my collection are old military rifles, and not the newer AR based evils. - they're cheaper.

How many now illegal weapons do you now own in New York, you 'criminal'.

You did read ther new law and restrictions didn't you.

You have a year, before you are a defined by law 'criminal' if you own anything that fits the requirements of idiocy from NY.
