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.
