    Vinnie,

    Please use punctuation in your posts. It would make them much easier to read.

    Thanks!

    The Federal AWB affects all 50 states. It is set to expire soon and hopefully no new legislation will replace it.

    Many states also have their own state level version of a AWB ban. Those will not go away when the federal law expires.

    In short, you have to be aware of both Federal and State law to stay in compliance.

    Please do not waste punctuation, it is one of our precious un-natural resources and is on the endangered gammar list. One period is more than enough, don't you know that there are thousands of illiterate writers in this country due to the shortage of periods!:D

    I believe there are 7 states that have their own assault rifle bans. They include Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, California. I think Massachusetts also has its own AR laws. The two other states, well I can't remember.

    WT,

    YOu are correct, though in NJ you can own a few of them rifles, as long as they dont have a flash hider, or lug, or folding/col stock...

    So far AR-15 type, AK type rifle SAR, MAK90, etc, and M1A - (with flash hider) are all legal!! Just no mags over 15 rounds. :(

    Among others I am sure.
