Gun control activists aren't going to like this story very much.

According to National Review, gun manufacturers have made a few modifications to the popular AR-15 rifle so that it can still be sold in New York's gun shops, despite the strict gun laws of the SAFE Act that were signed into law last year by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The new changes to the firearm make it look more like a paintball gun, but, of course, it's still far more lethal than one of those toys.

The simple changes involved getting rid of the pistol grip and adjusting the flash suppressor, according to the story.

Even with these kinds of changes, it'll be hard for gun control activists like Dwayne Ferguson to forget they are concealing this one on the way to visit their kids at school.
