Say Goodbye To My Little Friend

Definition:
An assault weapon has a detachable magazine, in conjunction with one, two, or more other features such as a pistol grip, a folding stock, a flash suppressor, or a bayonet lug

NY States new Gun Law:
Under the stricter definitions, semi-automatic pistols and rifles with detachable magazines and one military style feature will be considered assault weapons.



So according to the definition of an assault weapon, a pistol grip is a military style feature. So essentially, what NY State just did, is outlaw all semi automatic pistols such as the Glocks, M&P's, Beretta's and all other hand guns that have a pistol grip and use a detachable magazine.

But it doesn't outlaw a .38 with speed loader? To load your cylinder, align, drop and pull rearward, done! With about 10 minutes practice, you can load one of these as fast as changing a magazine in a Glock.

All dealers in ammunition must be registered with the State Police, and each sale will require both a state background check and transmission of a record of the sale to State Police in real time

Who's paying for this software and network set up? This is about every gun shop in NY as well as shooting range and gun club. Does separate sales of powder, load/shot and slug count as ammunition since it is not one piece in a box? But separate pieces where a user can reload rounds in their house?

Honestly, this new law doesn't do much to protect us. It more or less hampers law abiding citizens. The criminals will still get their guns, they will still shoot people. It's not going to stop that. It will only make them stay behind bars a few years longer, but not prevent anything.

What I think is far more worse then anything in the bill is the fact that, they snuck this in over night on Monday and passed it on Tuesday. So none actually had anytime to read it and voice concerns. But then again, that's just like anything NY State has done. But when things really matter like jobs, economy, they can't do squat. Yet another reason I will not move back to NY.

One part f the bill which I do support is the registration  I've always thought that you should have to register your weapons every few years like you do your vehicles. As long as you register the weapons every few years for a small fee like $10 a weapon, then it's good. Say maybe every five years. Even if you have 6 weapons that need to be registered, that's still cheaper then the registration on your car or truck every two years.

The registration isn't hampering anything. If anything, if the gun is stolen and you do your duty to report it, then when found it can be returned. Unless it was used to kill someone. But then the insurance can repay since a claim was filed.
