Because it accepts more than 7 rounds, you may have to register it as an assault weapon. . . .wtf

Also, dealers must cease selling "assault" weapons immediately in new york, they can only sell to other dealers or out of state. Only "assault" weapons paid for before january 15, 2013 can be given to the buyer. All grandfathered "assault" weapons must be registered by april 15, 2014, but high cap mags must be modified to accept only 7 rounds. Or you can buy a 7 round mag if one exists.
Garand is NOT fed by a detachable magazine. It is clip fed, and therefore NOT an assault weapon and does not have to be registered.
