New York Bill Would Outlaw GLOCKs, Most Semi-Automatic Pistols

When gun control advocates say they want “gun safety legislation” they are lying. Plain and simple. Their goal is to outlaw civilian gun ownership. Sadly for them the Second Amendment stands in their path to gun-free nirvana.

Their latest political scheme? New York State Senator Zellnor Myrie — who authored New York’s ‘nuisance’ law that’s intended to bankrupt gun makers — has introduced a bill to ban GLOCKs, some of the most popular handguns in America, in the Empire State.

There would be no grandfathering and no exemptions (besides police, of course, and a handful of others). Possession would become a felony . . .


Section 1 amends subdivision 1 of section 265.00 of the penal law, which
defines “Machine-gun” and adds two new subdivisions 36 and 37 to that
section to define the following terms: “Pistol converter”, and “Convert-
ible pistol”.

Section 2 amends subdivision 10 of section 265.02 of the penal law, as
added by Chapter 1 of the laws of 2013 by adding a new subdivision 11
that criminalizes the possession of any pistol converter.

Section 3 amends subdivisions 1 and 2 of section 265.10 of the penal law
as separately amended by chapters 34, 130, and 146 of the laws of 2019,
which state the various criminal charges for manufacturing and transpor-
tation of respective illegal weapons and components, to include pistol

converters and adds a new subdivision 10 which states criminal charges
for disposing of transporting or shipping as merchandise a convertible

Section 4 amends section 265.20 of the penal law, which lists applicable
exemptions to weapons offenses, by adding a new subdivision f, which
states the specified parties to whom a person, dealer, firm, partner-
ship, or corporation may legally dispose of a convertible pistol,
despite the prohibition created in Section 3, such as persons in mili-
tary service at both federal and state levels, police officers, peace
officers, government defense contractors fulfilling their agreements,
and licensed gunsmiths and dealers in firearms.

Moms Demand Action, which wrote the bill and is whole-heartedly endorsing the gun ban, couldn’t be more thrilled than if Joe Biden was handing out chocolate cake and boxed wine.

Don’t let that tweet fool you. Myrie’s bill doesn’t specifically name GLOCKs. It’s aimed at “pistol converters and convertible pistols.” It targets semi-autos that are “easily convertible for machine-gun like fire.” It’s aimed at ostensibly targeted at GLOCKs and so-called GLOCK switches.

The bill would outlaw . . .

any semi-automatic pistol that can be converted into a machine-gun solely by the installation or attachment of a pistol converter 

As anyone who knows anything about semi-automatic handguns is well aware, they’re all relatively easily convertible with an auto sear — which could be defined as a pistol coverter — and a few minutes of work. It’s not terribly complicated.

That’s something Everytown and their puppet Senator Myrie know too. It means that if this bill becomes law, it will be weaponized not only against GLOCK pistols, but eventually against virtually every semi-automatic handgun in the state of New York.

Apsiring tyrants like Myrie have no shame. Neither do their string-pullers in the gun control industry like those at Moms Demand Action which is also behind the city of Chicago’s suit against GLOCK. This is exactly the kind of gun ban the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex has been dreaming of for decades. Watch this space.

  1. The way I see it, the proper response to a law like that would be to re-open the full-auto registry.

    That way, it gets them registered onto the NFA, solving the ‘problem’ completely, since registered select-fire guns are very rarely used in crime…

    1. Only stamps you can get in NY are AOW (lot of issues) and destructive devices so yet another lawsuit for basic stuff.
