This MUST BE STOPPED! Obviously the anti gunners in NY state have WAAAAAAAY too much time on their hands.

You would be required to either render your weapon inoperable, surrender it to police, or register is in a ballistic database; which according to the text would involve the following: "RULES AND REGULATIONS SHALL, AT A MINIMUM, SPECIFY PROCEDURES BY WHICH THE OWNER OF AN ASSAULT WEAPON LAWFULLY POSSESSED PRIOR TO JULY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TEN IS TO DELIVER AN ASSAULT WEAPON AND VERIFICATION OF A BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIRED BY 18 USC S 922 TO THE REGIONAL PROGRAM FOR TESTING AND PROMPT RETURN."


So in other words, we would all have to surrender guns we already own "for testing", and undergo ANOTHER background check...never mind the fact that an NICS check was required to buy our guns in the first place. And then "deliver" the gun for testing and "prompt return"...I wonder what their definition of "prompt" is. This is unbelievable. Other versions of this bill have passed the assembly in both 2007 and 2008...they keep adding more and more **** to it. My personal favorite is that they are now including rimfire semi-autos! My 10/22 is now an "assault weapon".


S 2. Subdivision 22 of section 265.00 of the penal law is REPEALED and
5 a new subdivision 22 is added to read as follows:
6 22. "ASSAULT WEAPON" MEANS ANY:

13 (IV) A SHROUD ATTACHED TO THE BARREL, OR THAT PARTIALLY OR COMPLETELY
14 ENCIRCLES THE BARREL, ALLOWING THE BEARER TO HOLD THE FIREARM WITH THE
15 NON-TRIGGER HAND WITHOUT BEING BURNED, BUT EXCLUDING A SLIDE THAT
16 ENCLOSES THE BARREL; OR
17 (V) A MUZZLE BRAKE OR MUZZLE COMPENSATOR;

They banned them in Australia years ago, AFAIK.

Hmmm... would the barrel shroud bit cover AR type rifles with a free float tube I wonder?
