New York Gun Law CAN'T Be Enforced Properly

    ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo and state lawmakers rushed a gun-control law through in January that prohibits the sale of magazines that can hold more than seven bullets, the nation’s lowest limit.

    Problem is, nobody makes seven-bullet magazines.

    Now, state leaders are planning to suspend the prohibition, which is due to take effect April 15, until they can rewrite the measure.

    The nation’s first new gun-control law since last December’s Newtown school massacre reduces the number of bullets allowed in a magazine to seven from 10, except at firing ranges and shooting competitions.

    “Gun manufacturers don’t make seven-round magazines and aren’t planning to,” Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver conceded yesterday.

    Lawmakers will have to put the measure on hold — but any new measure, they say, would still limit the number of bullets that can be carried to seven in a larger magazine.

    Silver said he, Cuomo and Senate leaders plan to suspend any provision of the law that “presumes that manufacturers are going to manufacture” seven-round magazines.

    He said the length of the suspension hasn’t been determined.

    Cuomo’s office had no comment yesterday, but the governor this week conceded “there is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine . . . so you really have no practical option.”
  2. Not to worry. New York has already set up a hotline where you can report your neighbor for having an illegal gun with a clip that allows more than 7 bullets.

    This will allow the police SWAT squad to show up, use a battering ram on the door, and lock up the criminal gun owner.

    The ignorance of anti gun pussies knows no bounds.
  4. Obviously the plan all along was make semi-automatics with more capacity than 7 rounds illegal.

    They knew there were no 7 round mags they just thought they could get away with banning guns on a technicality.

    It would be like only guns without sights as being legal.

    See no ban just that every gun out there has them.

    Obviously all gazillion of them need to be confiscated.
  6. Hopefully the law will be declared unconstitutional as it violates the Heller standard of banning guns in common useage.
