“I’d like to know how some brainiac came up with seven rounds as a limit. “
That “brainiac” is smarter than you think:
That is as close to a defacto semi auto gun ban as you can have with out coming right out and saying so.
1) If it passes, they effectively ban semi-autos, only revolvers.
2) They can look like heroes by “compromising” from 7 to 10 round mags and therefore paint opponents as crazy and intransigent. (Ten rounds is probably where they wanted to be in the first place.)
probably thinking about wheel gun limits...5,6,7...because obviously 10 you’d never, ever ever use. you’ll nver face off against a’coked up muscle freak, youll never ever go up against home’invaderd wearing armor, you’ll never have multiple attackers come after you - they even say this as a guarantee by the state of NY and you can sue them if it happens - oh wait, they didn’t say that, and you can’t sue NY if these scenarios happen and your 7 rounds aren’t enough.
The guy selling revolvers that hold 7, 8, 9 and 10 rounds. You can get 7-8 rounds of .357 in a revolver, 9-10 of .22 long rifle. If this passes, I predict everyone in NY will be going back to the good old .45. Last bill limiting size of magazines breathed new life into the .45 and this should help even more.
