Interesting note on the new gun law in NYS. Under definition of assault weapon which is no longer allowed to be sold, under section (C) A SEMIAUTOMATIC PISTOL THAT HAS AN ABILITY TO ACCEPT A DETACHABLE MAGAZINE AND HAS AT LEAST ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS: is listed as one of those characteristics: (VIII) A SEMIAUTOMATIC VERSION OF AN AUTOMATIC RIFLE, SHOTGUN OR FIREARM Now..... There is the Glock 18, which is an automatic firearm under these parameters. And since the Glock 19 is the semiautomatic version of this pistol the law pretty much outlawed the sale of probably the most popular Glock at best, and the ban of all Glock platform weapons at worst. Discuss.
