  1. Proposed NY A08159 Amends Safe Act - Still Not Good

    Proposed NY Bill A08159 amends and repeals portions of the so-called 'Safe Act', problem is it doesn't go far enough.

    The bill is a nightmare to try and read with items being repealed surrounded in [] and new items in caps. Essentially it removes the detachable mag and one item definition of an 'assault weapon' and changes it to a detachable mag and two items from the list BUT then it adds in specific makes and models of gun considered AWs very similar to the CA and CT AW definitions.

    The bill also adds back in a grandfather clause for high cap mags made prior to Sept 13, 1994.

    I guess from a New Yorkers point of view it's better then what they have now but it's still draconian.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

    There is an old saying about a journey of a thousand miles beginning with a single step. Well, we have a long journey back to sanity for the gun owners here. My best hope at the moment is the suit that is in process by a attorney by the name of Tresmond. What little we hear is at least encouraging.

    Even with it being a step in the right direction, Im sure it has more to do with LEO and private security than it does with actual common sense or working to help the citizens of NY. I have SOOOOOOOO little faith in Democratic controlled states......
    My way is not better, it is just mine, your way is not better, it is just yours.
    Carry what your comfortable with, there is no "Supergun" Carry how your comfortable, open or concealed, so you have it with you when you need it
