    Ugly AR's for NY state SAFE compliance

    Gun design legal, deadly Arms makers work to make AR-15-style weapon conform to NY SAFE Act

    Albany, NY

    It might be the most divisive element of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s NY SAFE Act: an expanded ban on what the administration terms “assault-style” weapons, such as the Vietnam-era AR-15s that are wildly popular with gun enthusiasts.
    But the ban is proving to be less than total. Gun dealers, with the help of machine shops and gunsmiths, are on the cusp of offering what they call NY SAFE-compliant AR-15s and other military-style rifles.

    Prototypes for the new rifles have been on display at gun shops from western New York to the Adirondacks in recent weeks. And now a lawyer representing one shop says he has gotten what amounts to an OK from the state, in the form of a letter from a State Police lawyer confirming that AR-15-style guns should be legal as long as they lack the characteristics prohibited by the law.

    It’s basically an AR-15 without the features,” said James Tresmond, a western New York lawyer representing H&H Firearms,

    It is sad that this has to be done but I applaud the effort behind it.

    The key is keeping it as reliable as the "real thing". Also as comfortable.

    The AR was ugly to begin with. Not sure if that is an improvement or not.
    Regardless, good to see local innovation to get around Paper King Cuomo's idiotic law.

    That rifle is Fugly! But I guess the folks have to do whatever they have to do to comply with the stupidity of Guvner Kum-Ho! This is definitely a sad sign of the times in our poor country.

    Instead of making the rifle compliant to the wishes of the governor, the people of NYS ought to make the governor compliant to the wishes of the people. Just a thought from outside of the woods looking in.

    Here in CA, we call them "featureless"; you do what you gotta do to get by.

    Anything to get arms in the hands of citizens.

    I'm hoping the Supreme Court in New York throws out the entire Cuomo Gun Ban. if it were up to me, I'd throw Long Island, the Rotten Apple, and Westchester County out of New York State, and Cuomo with them. Then I'd call a state constitutional convention and make sure things that would prevent the leeches from voting for bread and circuses and that would protect our Second Amendment rights, and that also would establish term limits for the state assembly, the state senate, and the governor's office. Oh yes -- and that would provide for gubernatorial recall elections, in effect a vote of no confidence in the governor.

    Now that I think about it, one could take the upper receiver and make a modified lower to look like, say, a "mini 14 style rifle". The mags past that would be the issue.

    One person defending their rights with a gun will always defeat the masses that CHOOSE to be defenseless.
