It isn't hard at all to imagine how the assault weapon ban can be resurrected if it is defeated based on Haynes
, it can be resurrected to look just like the current NFA registry which was upheld and distinguished from Haynes
in U. S. vs. Freed, 401 U.S. 601 (1971)
Am I missing something here? Why wouldn't New York just immediately modify the law the same way the NFA was modified in order to maintain the registry?
