i was looking at the text of the new proposed NYS AWB and saw this:

(IV) A SHROUD ATTACHED TO THE BARREL, OR THAT PARTIALLY OR COMPLETELY
15 ENCIRCLES THE BARREL, ALLOWING THE BEARER TO HOLD THE FIREARM WITH THE
16 NON-TRIGGER HAND WITHOUT BEING BURNED, BUT EXCLUDING A SLIDE THAT
17 ENCLOSES THE BARREL;[/quote\


what does this mean exactly? it seems every rifle has a wood or plastic guard that allows you to hold it with your non-trigger hand without being burned, even my 10/22. what defines a "shroud" vs a "slide"?

Who knows what it means. In any case we need to ban Nomex/Kevlar gloves. With a pair of those puppies you don't need no 'stinkin shroud (or stock for that matter).

The only thing I can think of is that they are confusing a heat shield as something used to actually hold the weapon vs. something that dissipates heat off the barrel.

Its obvious that the people who wrote these laws didn't do their homework, so I wouldn't be surprised. Anti-gun legislation is written by people who want nothing to do with firearms of all types; that includes actually researching them.

so it seems a stock ruger 10/22 could be banned because it has a detachable mag and it has a plastic piece which partially covers the barrel so the gun can be held with the non trigger hand without being burned.

great

Which is why its important we *all* push on our elected officials to stop this crap from passing.

They're looking to restrict us to pump shotguns, black powder and bolt actions. In the ideal world, we wouldn't even have that.

sorry but the day the 10/22 gets banned.......


ASSHOLESSSSSSSSS

upon reading it again, it really depends what "partially or completely encircles the barrel" means. does it mean that the barrel is completely encircled at one point, but othe rpoints of the barrel are exposed? (like AR handguards). does it mean that the barrel is partially encircled most of the way down, like on a 10/22? i don't know! going from the wording, it could go either way. i really don't want to be arrested and to be the first one to find out what it mean exactly... in a courtroom!

could you include a little more context or a link to the wording of the ban? Doesn't this apply to hand guns only?

This is probably which legislation he's talking about:

I stand corrected, that section wasn't applying to just to handguns.
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 4:27:14 AM EDT
So I wonder if you use half a HandGuard on a AR15 that makes it legal. This is a bad joke or dream and If this is only the start of the new year, I hate to see what is about to come.

you'd have to cut off the pistol grip... the new proposed ban allows only ONE evil feature in addition to the detachable mag.

The Democrats have been trying to get the current AWB to look like the the version of the AWB they originally passed in 2000 before Pataki compromised and replaced it with current Federal mirror ban.

It's critical that we keep the Republican majority in the Senate after the Nov 2006 elections. If we could mange to increase the Senate majority that would send a clear message to the Senate Democrats to back off their feel good anti-gun bills that have no effect on the criminal misuse of firearms in NY.
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 12:45:13 PM EDT
what are the chances of us losing the senate in 2006? don't we only have a majority by like 6 votes now?
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 1:19:24 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 2/7/2006 1:28:44 PM EDT by rkbar15]
I don't think the Senate majority is at risk in 2006. A few years ago the Democrats stated they were on target to attain a majority in 2008. The Republicans currently have an eight member majority.

I don't know what Republican controlled seats are at risk in 2006. Perhaps HiramRanger could shed some light on the subject.

If you care about maintaining you gun rights in NY go to the following link and contact your county Republican Committee. Ask them what you can do to help elect or keep your Republican NYS Senator in office.

in the new bill, it's under both the pistol and rifle sections. in the existing ban, it's only under the pistol section.

here's the text of the new ban:

6 a new subdivision 22 is added to read as follows:

very possible... what idiots
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 12:24:27 PM EDT
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the shroud on the TEC-9 for heat dissipation and not for holding?

I've only seen a few people shoot a TEC-9 but they all gripped it with either one hand on the pistol grip and the other holding just above the magazine OR as you would grip any other pistol, two hands towards the pistol grip.

The pea-brains will also have to ban oven mitts. Upchuck is the expert on shooting a TEC-9.

A competition semiautomatic pistol equipped with a compensator will also be classified and banned as an assault pistol.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 5:27:59 PM EDT
a ruger 10/22 with a thumbhole stock will be illegal, the whole barrel shroud/slide issue nonwithstanding.
