Default NY gun laws and the gun industry in movies

"There's a fine line between not listening and not caring...I like to think I walk that line everyday of my life."

Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle
Psalm 144:1

“It is always wrong to use force, unless it is more wrong not to.”

Well, that's certainly gonna help drive the film industry away.
"The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention which has been praised and denounced... served hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history."

“What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike.” - Alfred North Whitehead

The antigun idiots don't care about art, they don't care about cinema. But they're stupid.

They extol films like "Schindler's List" and completely forget that the Germans have GUNS.

Like with real gun technology, they don't want to hear about 'reality'. They think we have a magical warehouse of custom but FAKE weapons of every make model and design in history which can simulate blank fire without actually firing an evil cartridge.
The trouble is, one requires a specific thing to understand Liam, that thing being "serious head injuries." (Evil Tim 09-09-2011)

I'm very confused, because I follow the American Entertainment Armorers' Association web site, and last I heard, they were on top of this:

The nation’s toughest gun control law hasn’t even taken effect, but New York lawmakers are considering tweaking the restrictions, especially if the gun owners happen to be from Hollywood.

Permitting filmmakers to use genuine assault weapons — banned under the state law passed in January — is one of the measures under consideration by legislators in the state capital, Albany. Another possible change that lawmakers say might be necessary: exempting law enforcement officials from the assault weapons ban.

This post was made over two months ago, so has something changed that I wasn't aware of? Back then, AEAA seemed pretty confident that the new laws weren't going to affect New York's armorers.
Cry "Havoc," and let slip the hogs of war.
