Buyer beware on ‘SAFE compliant’ guns – Gun parts manufacturers and gun enthusiasts have been attempting to comply with the NY-SAFE Act by altering the features of their AR-15-style weapons. Although the practice may be legal, confusion over what complies with the law may result in court battles. Christopher Keniston, a senior investigator with the New York State Police, said gun buyers should do their homework before they purchase a gun that claims to be NY-SAFE compliant. “It’s a big gray area,” Keniston said. “Be careful when you’re operating in a gray area.”
