I can't honestly say I understand why NYS has this ban in place, or better yet the 30 rd magazines. Chances are that if someone intends to use a high powered rifle for illegal purposes, the muzzle that is on it isn't going to matter much. Then you go into the magazines... Pre ban 30 rounders are ok, but post ban are not... Such a difference between them! Once again, if they are going to use the rifle for illegal purposes, pre/post ban isn't going to matter much! Can someone please elaborate on this? I really just don't have a clue why these laws even exist...
