New York awb allowing previously banned rifles?


January 21, 2013, 09:48 PM
Now that the ban seems to be set I have a question.

Previously having 2 evil features made some rifles a no-go. I

Reading over the nysafe website it seems like they are allowing rifles
"With a detachable magazine and one or MORE of the following features " to be registered before April.

Does this mean I can register an ak with a folding stock, and bayo lug foregrip... Ect? I as long as I do it before the deadline?

Or can I only register a rifle with a detachable mag and one feature?

Confused in NY...

Your not the only one, was wondering the same thing myself.

If it has ONE single feature from their list it must be registered.

Just line up and register. The confiscation bill will be along shortly.

I understand that if it has ONE feature it needs to be registered. I

Previously anything with 2 or more was outright banned and collapsible or folding was also outright banned...

Now I am reading this as" if they have these features they are legal if registered before the xxxdate"... No matter what or how many features the rifle has.

For example previous to this bill a folding stock ak with bayo lug and foregrip was not allowed in NY.. Now after it seems like it would be as long as it's registered before the date.

They should be registered!;)
Without this wink, many people never would have perceived the satire.

Registration means that criminals will then stop those drive-by bayonetings with guns which have bayo lugs.

Yes you can now register your evil rifles no matter how many features because if you only register the ones with one feature you might hide the rest. This way you'll tell them exactly what you have.

Looking for a real answer here not attitude guys.

I know that registration is a forigen idea to a lot of you. I but I think reality due to nj gun laws before living in NY... They already know what I've got.

I would not come to THR for legal advice, especially when the scenario you are referencing possibly involves criminal action if the law is interpreted the wrong way.

The law is new, very few people really understand it (even in legislative and law enforcement circles), and you have a year to figure it out.

Give it time, wait for the attorneys to get all in it, and then make an intelligent choice based on actual legal advice from an attorney who is licensed in New York.

I'd not attempt to register such a rifle. You're in a catch-22. The law that takes effect in April may allow you to register it now, but the existing law in effect until April considers such a rifle contraband.

This is what I'm thinking...

What about if you bought it after you registered it?

I realize you're 'just spitballing here,' as they say, but maybe this sort of legalistic sophistry would be better taken up in consultation with a competent and well compensated attorney whose career reputation is staked on the quality of advice he gives.

You know- accountability, something the Internet lacks in spades.

Free legal advise from any gun forum is not worth the price !

Yes, definitely just spitballing.
I was attempting to demonstrte how poorly thought-out this whole thing is, certainly not suggesting that anyone actually does it!

Call your state representative and ask him/her while expressing your displeasure. Better yet, ask for his/her directive in writing.

Currently, under the NY AWB, it is illegal to possess such a rifle. If you we're to register it, you'd be registering an illegal assault weapon.
