In 30 pictures describing “pistols that are not assault weapons,” the NY SAFE web site incorrectly identifies 6 of 30 handguns presented by name, and 16 of 30 by type.
Neither gun is a pistol. The GP 100 is misidentified as an LCR, and the LCR as a GP 100.
16 of the 30 handguns presented are revolvers, not pistols. Of the pistols they do include, they can’t get their names right.
Beretta makes a pistol called the “Nano” that looks very much like the BU9.
In the slideshow labeled “Images of rifles that are not classified as assault rifles,” the photos mislabel rifles brands by the cartridges they fire; “Springfield 30-06″ and “Winchester .308″ open the presentation, and fail to even get that right getting the cartridge name order reversed.
After deeming this rifles “good,” Cuomo Andrew celebrated by listening to some Springsteen Bruce and a little Joel Billy at the Governor’s Office in New York Albany.
NY SAFE serially confuses a rifle’s caliber with its model, and worse, can’t tell the basic difference between a rifle and a shotgun…
The Marlin 795 is a small semiautomatic .22 rifle. NY SAFE included a photo of a pump action shotgun.
… a hunting rifle and a variant of a World War II-era Russian submachine gun…
The bottom firearm is not anything ever made by Browning, and appears to be a visual derivative of the Russian PPsH submachine gun.
…or tell the difference between a weapons that are legal, yet function identically as “evil assault weapons”…
The Mini-14 NY SAFE says isn’t an assault rifle fires the same ammunition, from similar 30-round magazines, at the same rate of fire, as an AR-15.
… and we’re supposed to take them seriously? It would be laughable, other than the fact that if you mistake the NY SAFE Act web site a being a competent guide, you could end up in prison for violating the NY SAFE Act since the Web site and the actual law have very little in common.
You don’t have to be ignorant, opportunistic, clueless and vicious to go into politics in New York, but it sure helps.
No wonder so many New Yorkers are expected to ignore NY SAFE. It’s a law, passed by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing other than a desire to meddle in things they clearly do not understand.
