A little while back the wonderful state of New York passed a very atrocious 'gun control' bill that would ban any type of AR platform.
I ran across a wonderful article at gunsfreedom.com where a manufacturer has already worked around the restrictions.
Yes, at one glance it doesn't look very pretty but like they state, it shoots exactly the same as any other AR platform. Also the beauty of it is that you don't have to do a whole lot to set it up as any other AR platform.
Right now it sounds like there are some pretty hard pushes in the states that passed crazy laws like this to get them repealed. The public as a whole does not like the fact that 'big government' is encroaching into their lives so they are pushing back so we shall see where that leads.
