Gazing into my crystal ball, I see many lawsuits being filed in New York and any other states that pass laws like this; I suspect a lot of them will be based on "common use," and I hope that concept will be clarified sooner rather than later. I don't see how states (or the feds, for that matter) can support a claim that ARs etc. aren't in common use for lawful purposes.

And might it not be possible to challenge magazine bans where semi-auto pistols are concerned, on the grounds that many semi-autos in common use are designed to take magazines holding >10 rounds (and certainly >7 )? Perhaps it would be harder to make that claim for rifles, but for pistols where that's a factor in the design of the grip...?

I'm not sure about this, but I wonder...
