Will it change anything ?
Do you think Ny'ers will get the right to own machine guns ? Federal law allows citizens to own them ( special permit needed) but NY banned them. Its just like the situation in DC. If federal law allows automatic weapons then NY has to allow them . Right ?
also, NY doesn't allow rifles with less then 16 inch barrels. Federal law allows short barreled rifles as long as you pay a special $200 tax.
