Cosmetic tweaks to AR-15 thwart New York's 'ban' on assault rifles
Fox News ^ | 2/14/2014 | Maxim Lott

Simple design tweaks are allowing gun makers to get around restrictions New York put in place following the 2012 school shootings in Connecticut, prompting some critics to say the laws were mere window dressing.

New York lawmakers passed the SAFE Act last year, and announced with fanfare that it effectively banned the sale of “assault weapons.” But AR-15s, the most popular type of guns often referred to as assault weapons, are sold in Empire State gun shops, freely and legally. The gun is being marketed by Stag Arms as a "New York-compliant AR-15," and features a slightly modified stock and no bells and whistles. The gun does not have a pistol grip, for instance - one of the features banned by the act.

With some cosmetic tweaks, I may be able to make Pelosi’s face a misdemeanor instead of a felony.

While it seems to be a workaround for that particular set of laws, it entirely defeats one of the main advantages of the rifle.

Besides being a rifle that meets the upgraded guidelines of “carry weight vs. round count,” it totally re-physics (if I can coin that word) the in-line recoil profile of the conventional AR-15 platform with another vectored-recoil profile that causes extra time needed for on-target pointing.

Any more cosmetic tweaks to Pelosi’s face and she’ll have an orgasm every time she sneezes.

“I believe politicians should not write and pass laws about something they know nothing about,” he said.

Like health care? The article mentions people taking their existing AR-15 in to get them modified so that they can avoid registration. Does anyone know how easy it would be to get them unmodified?

If the transporter ever becomes reality, you might be able to rearrange her molecules...oh, hell, just program it for deep space and be done with it.

Take a perfectly good rifle a wreck it just to placate the damned State Police and the legislature.These same. Clowns will pass additional laws just like Connecticut did so as to make the public unsure of what is legal and what is not.

My advice would be to by nothing made in Connecticut and I live here.

Well, do get on with it then - I'm tired of that crime.

She’s one facelift away from having a goatee ( and VERY bad breath!)!

Leftists call this “circumventing the law”,

and conservatives call this “complying with the law”.

We are not saying she "CAN"T" have another face lift. But those floppy things on the side of her head aren't her ears.

The Native Americans on the reservation have had fully automatic assault weapons brought home from Vietnam and also smuggled across from Canada for 50 years.. NO SAFE ACT THERE ON Akwesasne coz it violates NY and federal treaties. The natives are restless.

Laugh now, but the NY gun grabbers will soon figure out a way to use this as an excuse to ban even more weapons. Those SOBs

Put a wood stock and foregrip on an AR15 and most libs wouldn’t know the difference.

Rifles should look nonthreatening. It's appearances, not reality, that matter.


ObamaCare should look nonthreatening. It's appearances, not reality, that matter.

If liberals cared about reality, they would be conservatives.

The standard rule for design is that FORM follows FUNCTION.

Now the Politicians believe they can modify the FUNCTION by ruling against the FORM. No wonder they fail at design work.

Yup - that’s all it takes to make a so-called “assault rifle” perfectly legal.

I don’t give much credence to New York’s governor and state legislators. Their pet law still wouldn’t have stopped Adam Lanza.

The AR-15 can still be legally bought in NY and you don’t even have to register it - once you’ve made the necessary modifications to the firearm.
