You guys may remember that I'm new to guns and debate with the wife for awhile trying to get something for home defense. Well, I got a shotgun and am getting into shooting now and my pistol license (8 month process) is in the works. A buddy of mine and me talk about this all the time. The law here in NY is just ridiculous. Unfortunately, that's what you get when you live in a Democratic state.
The NRA and NY State Rifle and Pistol Assn has hired 2A lawyers to review the NY law. I believe this legislation will get hit in the courts, but there's no telling what parts will be upheld and which won't. The 7 round mag is ridiculous, even though they'll "let us keep" our 10 round mags as long as we only load 7 rounds. As @Phantom states, time to join the NRA and do all that we can to support the gun lobby. If Obama wants to sign executive orders, then we must prove that these new laws are unconstitutional.2009 GMC Sierra 5.3L running on E85

@Als09Sierra, my home defense shotgun has a 7 round magazine tube ... so of course I expect my pistol and rifle magazines to have more!
This is Lola; she is a show girl. She's also my home defense shotgun and if someone sees her in a capacity other than transport, range practice, or photos she'll probably be the last thing s/he sees, as she was built for exactly one purpose -- to protect me. If I could only choose one gun before running from a horde of zombies this would be it, as it can defend, feed, and clothe me, and that bandolier of shotgun shells has 50 rounds of differing ammunition types to allow for all three.
Here is another example of why Nanny States like CA and NY are places I'll never live -- I built her from the ground up (as in every pin, spring, part, etc.) a few years ago. Her name's Mercy and she was built to toss 73gr 5.56 NATO rounds accurately (3-5 MOA) to 500+ yards all day long -- and she has the rifling, trigger, optics, and magazine capacity to do it.
This is Mercy's brother, Kurt. He's a completely custom job, too, but instead of being built from the ground up he was fashioned from a 1st generation Bushmaster M17S (bullpup) ... a firearm with a design flaw (heat buildup) that was resolved with the venting you see, here. He's been redone in black since this photo was taken (I wasn't happy with the two-tone), and, yes, he's balancing unassisted on his grip (something the gen1 M17S could never do) as a result of re-engineering for close quarters controlability.
If anyone asks why we need such firearms, the answer is simple -- we do not 'need' them, but we are 'citizens' with a right to keep and bear arms, and it shall not be infringed. We should not be compared with the disarmed 'subjects' of Canada, Britain, and Australia who have no such right, as it's apples and oranges.
Obviously I enjoy building, modding, shooting and naming firearms -- safely and sanely, of course. I can't see myself living somewhere that infringed on my ability to do so. Ever. Also, I'll not be traveling to NY as long as it remains a Rogue Nanny State, as I'm unwilling to help fund such behaviour with my tourist dollars.

Yeah I'm getting tired of hearing semi auto rifles being called "assault rifles". In my opinion an assault rifle is a fully automatic rifle that can pump out a ton of ammo with one pull of the trigger. A semi auto is just a normal rifle that can hold multiple rounds due to having a replaceable magazine. Typical ignorant people that barely know half of what they're even talking about. Responsible gun owners shouldn't have to pay the price due to a few rotten apples.

@the phantom there's another rally Feb 9th. You going? I'm going to do my best to be there. It's tough to get a day away with a one-month old at home, but this is important. Maybe we can get a GMTC contingent together.

P.S. Ive got a nieghbor that dislikes guns a lot. When I shoot twice a year hes usually calling my house complaining of the noise. The last time I shot a couple pounds of tanerite with my AK and he was on my answering machine in seconds wanting to know what I had over here and to call him back. (hes about 1500' through the woods away from my house) That stuff goes Boom!! I never called him back in fact I was laughing the whole time since hes called the law on me the last 3 years in a row for having some fireworks on the 4th of July. Now he will probably call the law when I shoot more than 7 rounds at once. Just have to be quick with my magazines and when Im done have 7 loaded when the law shows up.
