Gun Manufacturers Just Change Look of AR-15, Now Its Legal Again In New York State
The weapon is no different in how fast it launches lead from its muzzle than the weapon that was banned in New York. : The only difference is, the stock looks different. : So it’s legal now. : Makes sense:
Pass a stupid law, get a stupid result.: This,: Clash Daily: reports, is a remodeled: AR-15, and it: is legal in New York despite the state’s “assault weapons” ban.
When the opponents of “assault weapon” bans argue: that it is preposterous for the state: to ban firearms based on the way they look, they really mean it. It is. The: rifle in the photograph above is no more or less powerful than the one that has been banned;: it just looks different. And, because the SAFE Act was, typically, interested only in cosmetic questions, a simple change to its aesthetic: rendered the rifle legal once more.
The legislators, not the gun makers. : Those guys are brilliant.
Hat Tip: : Weasel Zippers
