^^ and further note that under the most strict law in effect at the moment, that of New York, Garand's are NOT a prohibited firearm and that there IS a substitute enbloc clip already available that meets the 7 shot rule.
It's a pain in the ass, but not a ban...
In fact, methinks that Garands will become the Patriots *service rifle* of choice in New York.
Poetic justice if they are provided by the US Government via the CMP to the Patriots...
(Hint: Buy a dozen)
Thanks for the Snopes link. I think this joke ought to be on all of our lips, so we can use it to disarm our opponents with a smile when they speak of assalt rifles.
