    Just curious . . . does anyone in the north, NY, in particular know if .22 ARs still have to meet the assault weapon criteria?

    22. "Assault weapon" means:
    (a) a semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following characteristics:
    (i) a folding or telescoping stock;
    (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
    (iii) a bayonet mount;
    (iv) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor;
    (v) a grenade launcher; or
    (b) a semiautomatic shotgun that has at least two of the following characteristics:
    (i) a folding or telescoping stock;
    (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
    (iii) a fixed magazine capacity in excess of five rounds;
    (iv) an ability to accept a detachable magazine; or
    (c) a semiautomatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following characteristics:
    (i) an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip;
    (ii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer;
    (iii) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the nontrigger hand without being burned;
    (iv) a manufactured weight of fifty ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded;
    (v) a semiautomatic version of an automatic rifle, shotgun or firearm; or
    (d) any of the weapons, or functioning frames or receivers of such weapons, or copies or duplicates of such weapons, in any caliber, known as:
    (i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);
    (ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil;
    (iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);
    (iv) Colt AR-15;
    (v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;
    (vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12;
    (vii) Steyr AUG;
    (viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; and
    (ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12;
    (e) provided, however, that such term does not include:
    (i) any rifle, shotgun or pistol that
    (A) is manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action;
    (B) has been rendered permanently inoperable; or
    (C) is an antique firearm as defined in 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(16);
    (ii) a semiautomatic rifle that cannot accept a detachable magazine that holds more than five rounds of ammunition;
    (iii) a semiautomatic shotgun that cannot hold more than five rounds of ammunition in a fixed or detachable magazine;
    (iv) a rifle, shotgun or pistol, or a replica or a duplicate thereof, specified in Appendix A to section 922 of 18 U.S.C. as such weapon was manufactured on October first, nineteen hundred ninety-three. The mere fact that a weapon is not listed in Appendix A shall not be construed to mean that such weapon is an assault weapon; or
    (v) a semiautomatic rifle, a semiautomatic shotgun or a semiautomatic pistol or any of the weapons defined in paragraph (d) of this subdivision lawfully possessed prior to September fourteenth, nineteen hundred ninety-four

    There doesn't appear to be any exception for caliber. In fact, I have bolded the relevant section that states that any copy of a Colt AR-15 in any caliber is considered to be an "assault rifle" by the state of NY.
