A revision to the NYS assault weapons ban has passed the assembly and is currently in the senate. This bill has made it this far in the past and has died. Hopefully it dies again this time.
Significant changes to the law include:
Redefines assault weapons as a semi-automatic rille that accepts a detachable magazine having one or more of the following; a pistol grip, a second hand grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand, a folding, telescoping or thumb-hole stock, a barrel shroud or a muzzle brake or compensator.
Adds any semi-automatic pistol that can accept a detachable magazine and had a compensator to the list of banned weapons.

We have begun our Project AR-15 with the purchase of a stripped lower receiver! This is the first in a series of posts where we will take building an NY compliant AR-15 that is still fun to shoot, looks great, and built well.
To get started, we have purchased a stripped lower receiver. The one we found was a Sun Devil Mfg lower. The unique part about the Sun Devil lower is that it has a tension screw that adjust the tension between the lower receiver and the upper receiver. This definitely looks to be a cool feature and should help, possibly, with the accuracy of the gun.
For this build I think we are going to go with a 20″ style A3 rifle for some longer range shooting. Stay tuned for updates to this project as we piece it together!
I know this article is a few weeks old now, but I just ran across it and gave it a good read. Read it and let us know what you think!
Personally, I am for enhancing gun safety and the like, but not if its just another stepping stone in trying to eliminate our Second Amendment rights.
Check out a new page we just finished, entitled NYS Gun Laws. It has a reproduction of the NYS Gun Laws that the NRA has compiled.
We feel it is always important to know what laws are in place so you do not inadvertently break the law and face serious penalties.
We are working on putting together some more content for the main site. Some of the pages we’re working on a shooting range directory as well as a firearms business directory. Keep checking back as we add more content. We will also be doing reviews on various guns, accessories, parts, etc!
We’ve just put up a new page with some very important gun safety rules. It describes many of the common rules seen on NRA documents, and other organization’s gun safety rules. Take a look at the page and read over the rules. There could be some rules that you have not read in the past. Let us know what you think!
