OK

The NY Safe act rushed through that legislative process in less than a day and a half. There are women who have been in labor longer than it took to pass that law, my sister being one of them.

I'm going to try to format this thing so it's easier to follow.
Basically, an assault weapon is what is listed in ABCDEF. Section G is noted as not an assault weapon. And H says to sell their stuff into PA or VT or over the internet or get arrested.

"Assault  weapon"  means

Oh, by the way, that pic at the beginning is NOT an assault weapon according to NY State. Because it is a bolt action. Therefore, under G - 1 - A as quoted above it is specifically excluded from that designation. Yet my .22 rifle that I got new for under two hundred bucks is a vewy scary nasty gun, because OMG Semi auto and a pistol grip. Sheesh.

Does some of this seem a bit like overreach?
