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?
