    Not sure if this is the right forum but I thought of this just now and wasn't sure how it would work. Assuming LEOs came knocking and forced you to surrender an AR-15 or something (registered or not; compliant or not), couldn't you technically just give them a stripped lower and take...

    In seeing a need of humor to help get through these tyrannical times of Führer Cuomo, I bring you a possible loophole lol. A little heavy, a little hard to conceal unless you are a well endowed woman, but none the less interesting :cool:

    I have a USP 45 tactical I'm looking to sell. Unfortunately with the safe act, it makes it nearly impossible to sell. I thought I remember seeing somewhere that altering the weapon to remove its "Evil" feature clears it from having to go through any unnecessary paperwork. If that's the case...

    After reading the safe act page it looks like I can transfer a "AW" to my daughter then she could give it to her husband who could then give it to his Dad and we could do this on Christmas day to not only make this legal but a very merry Xmas. Am I right or all wet? Is this going to be a new...

    Can someone more knowledgeable enlighten me on what organization will be actually doing the "Assault Weapon" registrations? I thought Mr Cuomo said it will be performed by the NYS Police. I heard a nasty rumor that it is being pushed off onto our already WAY overworked County Clerks, with no...

    I've been doing a bit of research, lately. I've figured out how to build an assault weapon** from some fairly common parts. STEP 1: Purchase a very common Ruger 10/22 .22 caliber rifle. This rifle is completely legal. Millions of them have been sold since it was first released. The 10/22...

    NY Safe ActLast Day, Last Minute, Last Second That You Could Buy An "Assault Weapon" Some people saw it's Jan 14th 2013, Jan 15th 2013 and finally Jan 16th 2013. This would pertain to an AR-15 sale or like a Ruger 10/22 in an evil feature Tapco stock. I've read the NY Safe Act and it looks...

    Let's say my AR wasn't lost and I actually decided to register it. The website says a form will be made available. Who fills this form out? Would the gun be inspected? If I'm just filling out a form and mailing it in, what proof do I have that I ever sent the form in? I haven't called the...

    Found this on the AR-15 site (did not see it here..so if a re-post, my apologies). This a good read from an informed perspective and wanted to share: The Truth About Assault Weapons

    So anyways thanks to the wonderful state that we live in, the 10/22 that I have set up for accurate bench shooting is a scary AW. It has one of those lethal thumbhole stocks, yeah I know, death machine. Anyways I'm not really into dealing with registering a Ruger when I could just change out...

    This is some legal research that I prepared about 4 years ago regarding the New York State ban on "assault weapons." It addresses the elements of an "assault weapon" and then discusses the issue of the 9/94 date cut-off. As is relevant here, the New York Penal Law defines "assault weapon" as...
