    Curious to know what the early vibes are about how us "assault" rifle owners are going to respond to the Cuomo registration requirement -- will owners in your area:

    1) Register as required under the law;
    2) Modify to avoid definition of "assault rifle" (eg, remove pistol grip);
    3) Sell out of state to avoid the issue entirely;
    4) Other (I'll leave it to you to figure it out) ?

    I'm guessing:
    1) 10 percent
    2) 30 percent
    3) 10 percent
    4) 50 percent

    Am I close?

    Anyone who informs the world that he is going to violate NY law deserves what ever happens. Nobody is going to believe that you are reporting what "The Other Guys" are planning. Never forget:

    Who is informing the world about what they are going to do? I didn't ask, never would and frankly don't care about what any particular person does. I am asking about what we think the roughly 1 million owners are going to do -- and if its openly discussed in the NY Post I don't think you need to worry about your predictions being some state secret. I know people who will sell, some who will register, and some who will modify. Even the Cuomo people acknowledge a huge number will not register. The question is what proportion of the 1 million will fall into which category.

    I shoot IDPA and Trap, belong to several local clubs. I have yet to find one resident who plans on registering their semi auto weapons. Not a single one. As a matter of fact, many are planning on leaving the state, and taking their guns and tax dollars with them.

    The local trap clubs don't even know ow they are going to sell shells to shooters. Are they going to have to do a background check every Tuesday and Thursday night for the same damn people?

    Duomo has wakened a sleeping giant for sure.

    As for the magazines, don't look for a real high return on that part of the law either.....

    You've seen my posts in the past. I'm leaving, and I'm taking $250,000 a year in economic activity with me. In addition to my wife and I's income, my retired parents and at least two working friends are tagging along to Tennessee.

    I sold my house at a loss to get rid of it, AND screw NYS by lowering the tax liability, to a women who probably makes 1/5th what my wife and I make. Eventually, the beast will starve to death.

    My local rep, Andrew Goodell is a pro gun politician, and he's getting a certified letter from me the day we leave with a redacted copy of my tax return (no identity theft), last property tax bill, and new and future Tennessee tax bill PLUS a copy of the Tennessee gun laws. He can absolutely use MY story to lambaste the Democrats and Downstate RINO's on what their policies are doing to NYS.

    I may be leaving, but I'm still going to try and help my friends that are stuck here.
