Prototypes for the newly designed AR-15 are hitting gun shops across New York, as gun shops and machinists have designed a rifle that complies with the anti-gun law.
At least one gun shop has received a letter from state police saying that the new AR-15 style rifles should be legal in the state as long as they don’t have some of the features that the law prohibits.
The new gun law bans all kinds of semi-automatic rifles that have been labeled with the “assault” term even though these are very common rifles and are no more powerful than the average hunting rifle.
Features like adjustable stocks, pistols grips, and flash suppressors has been deemed to be unlawful on these rifles, mainly because it makes them LOOK mean. And we all know how little these anti-gun lawmakers really know about guns, as the “Ghost gun” video illustrated.
The new AR-15 design did away with the pistol grip which gives the gun an odd paintball gun look. The stock is fixed as well, but at least New Yorkers now have a legal way to own an AR-15, a fact which is still driving some gun control activists mad.
Leave it to good old American ingenuity to drive anti-gunners up the wall while allowing gun owners to still own this classic firearm which shoots the same exact rounds in the same exact way as the rifles that have been banned.
Here is the rifle.
Somewhere, my hero Eugene Stoner (we pause for a moment of silent reverence) is rolling over in his grave, and I don’t blame him. I predict that this rifle will be an embarrassment to its owners. I also predict that the ridiculous grip will cause a “couple” about a rotating axis 90 degrees through the gun about 1 – 2 inches below the chamber / bolt / buffer. This will cause the barrel to rise unnecessarily when shooting, something the Stoner design prevents.
Silly, ridiculous design. I don’t ascribe it to “good old American ingenuity” at all. I ascribe it to sorry, sad, embarrassing, pathetic appeasement of communists. I’ll keep my RRA rifle (and dog), thank you very much. Oh, and molṑn labé.
