Just curious.

Yep.....pre, post,(ar's ak's ect..) high caps no problem. NYC is a different matter.

The AW ban was written in the latest crime bill. If the federal ban is not extended in 2004, it will not have any effect on NYS.

the part with the definitions has good info on what's legal in NY as far as "assualt weapons" go. From my reading it seems to mirror the feds. High caps are ok as long as they are pre 9/1994
seems to have the same "2 evil features" provisions as well

I, too, concur with the above: the NY AW Ban was written to mirror the Federal AW Ban. Prebans and postbans are here to stay!

The NY law doesn't quite mirror the federal ban... IT DOESN'T HAVE A SUNSET CLAUSE.
