Pass a stupid law, get a stupid result.: This,: Clash Dailyreports, 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.

Morons.

The legislators, not the gun makers. : Those guys are brilliant.

Hat Tip: : Weasel Zippers
