This is what happens when you try to ban guns based on cosmetic features. Yeah, it's ugly, but its legal.
The company, Black Rain Ordnance, said the rifle would eliminate features that were made illegal under the SAFE Act. The gun will not have a pistol grip and will include a non-threaded muzzle and a 10-round low-capacity approved magazine.This will no doubt be characterized as a "loophole", because after all, the gun grabbers want to ban the guns themselves, not the features. But banning all guns doesn't pass Constitutional muster, and banning guns by name never works because that's just marketing. So instead they try banning specific features that the guns have in an attempt to make them simply go away.
"With the continual trampling of the 2nd Amendment in New York, Black Rain Ordnance is proud to announce their 'New York Compliant' rifles," the company said on its website. "These rifles feature all of the quality and craftsmanship of the standard BRO-lines, but with the added features that allow for legal possession."
But enter the free market, and voila, you've got NY Compliant rifles selling for a premium price.
