    I guess we all knew why NY state wasn't releasing the 'assault weapon" registration numbers. It took a law suit but we now know that 24,000 people registered 44,000 weapons. Estimates in the article range from several hundred thousand to a million of the weapons in the state so the non compliance rate seems pretty good. I'm anxious to see the numbers on handguns etc.

    With that much non-compliance, it's no wonder they didn't want to release the numbers.

    Given the population of NY (approx 20 million), this is microscopically insignificant. Good. :)

    It's low compared to the 1m number they expected

    A few things

    Long Island had the most registrations (7k)

    Bronx had 35 registered but has the highest shooting incidents lol

    I'm thinking 15-20% of those numbers are required police registrations.

    Handguns are registered since forever in nys. It has done wonders to deter law abiding citizens fom protectig themselves.

    Another tidbit... Ny has been losing population rapidly over the past 10 years.

    In an effort to try and attract businesses cuomo instituted a tax free business program for 10 years. Epic failure.

    You and me both, OA. Goodbye & good riddance to the socialist capitol of the NE!! :p

    Here is a good example of why I couldn't take being bombarded by their left-wing views......from the local metro newspaper (from my hometown) editorial page today on how everyone should comply with the Safe Act. Check out some of the comments, as you can see many are very upset -
