Uh, which state?

Here in MA, we still have plenty of pre-ban ARs, and we could have new ones until the dirtbag AG flexed in 2016.

Meanwhile, sales of bullpups, M1As, and everything non-AR are strong.

I thought one or more states in the NE had banned all traditional AR type rifles. I hope I'm wrong.

NY has a straight out ban on anything with one evil feature. No pistol grips, threaded barrels, muzzle devices of any kind, or anything else. Also, maximum magazine size is ten rounds unless it's C&R or a tubular 22lr. C&R magazines can hold more than ten rounds, but you can only load ten. Anything old enough to be on the C&R list can be registered, along with it's magazines.

As a former New Yorker what happened there is a very small number of rifle owners (a few competitive shooters who needed to stay above board due to frequent use and transport of rifles, cops and some
Other government workers who were pressured by bosses) registered full featured rifles.
Estimates are that close to a million people said screw you and did not register. There was no grandfathering of modern magazines holding over ten rounds either.
While there are plenty of tin foil hat people out there, in reality the powers that be simply do not have the resources or manpower to “go after” people after all how will they know who has what hidden in the barn or basement.
New York law is purposely vague to confuse and shed doubt in the gun owners mind exactly what is or is not legal regarding rifle configuration.
Before moving while some friends put rifles underground ( both literally and figuratively)
What most did was sell things not legal and bought a suitable substitute.
Gun owners always figure a way. My last couple years before moving I shot a few three gun matches and my rifle was an M1 Garand- fully compliant with the law and pretty effective. It did do more damage to some of the targetry than the match directors anticipated however

VT hasn't banned them yet, but I may be moving in that direction. CT isn't New England, unless you meant Northeast, by NE. CT is along the lines of NY I believe.

Vermont just passed the first gun control ever in the history of the state and certain elements in the legislature have made it clear they want to push for more and I'm sure an ban on "assault weapons" is high on the list.

They just knew they could get it passed and would forfeit the entire effort if they went for the brass ring.
