We hold that the core provisions of the New York and Connecticut laws prohibiting possession of semiautomatic assault weapons and large‐capacity magazines do not violate the Second Amendment, and that the challenged individual provisions are not void for vagueness. The particular provision of New York’s law regulating load limits, however, does not survive the requisite scrutiny. One further specific provision—Connecticut’s prohibition on the non‐semiautomatic Remington 7615—unconstitutionally infringes upon the Second Amendment right. Accordingly, we AFFIRM in part the judgment of the District Court for the District of Connecticut insofar as it upheld the prohibition of semiautomatic assault weapons and large‐capacity magazines, and REVERSE in part its holding with respect to the Remington 7615. With respect to Case 14-36, Document 330-1, 10/19/2015, 1621732, Page5 of 57 the judgment of the District Court for the Western District of New York, we REVERSE in part certain vagueness holdings, and we otherwise AFFIRM that judgment insofar as it upheld the prohibition of semiautomatic assault weapons and large‐capacity magazines and invalidated the load limit.

There is an ongoing discussion in this thread on our forum regarding ER&G and some new restrictions on their shooting range.
According to the club’s website:
In an effort to reduce noise leaving the club grounds, all semi-automatic medium to large caliber rifles are to use the upper range. Only two shooters at a time and no more than 10 rounds in 30 seconds per shooter with a 1 minute pause between shooters/ magazine changes. We are trying to be proactive about the noise before it becomes an issue. Your support is greatly appreciated.”
Many of the club’s members are unhappy with these new rules and question the validity of the reasoning.
There is a club meeting on Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 7pm. The club’s address is 6275 Laird Road, Jordan, NY 13080. Click here for a map. If you’re a member of the club and would like to find out more about the new rules and share your opinion on them you are encouraged to join some other NYFirearms.com members who will be attending the meeting.
