This is what happens when low information politicians go off half-cocked.

there is no reason for cops to have greater capacity mags than civilians. They both have to defend against the same criminals. The cops have an advantage because they usually operate in teams. If they think they need 30 rounders, the people need 30 rounders for the same reason

Maybe they didn’t forget. Given how New York law enforcement shoots, it may be a smart thing to limit them too; perhaps one bullet in a breast pocket?

Our founders didn’t create a system of governance that works at a snail’s pace by mistake. The separate houses are called “deliberative bodies” for a reason.
They’re supposed to deliberate, not rush to agreement without considerable thought.

You really don’t need more than 10 rounds.
Didn’t Cuomo say that?

are they also going to fix the law so that section 1 doesn’t make it illegal to own any gun at all?

I don’t have a problem with limits on government employees.
I do have a problem with the same limits on law-abiding private citizens.

Why do the Police need high capacity magazines? If the law makes them illegal for civilians then no one will have them and the Police will in turn not need theirs. Is that not correct?

IMO, this was a law designed to be thrown out.

According to the government, only the government police needs high capacity magazines, as why else would he government buy 1.2 billion rounds of hollow tip ammunition? Also drones, armored vehicles, etc., and doing away with the 4th Amendment, etc. They’re not as stupid as they look.
Now would be the time to gum up the legislative works, somehow, and force the Rat enforcers to live by the same rules as are applied to everyone else. Does the GOP not have any power or backbone in NY (rhetorical question).

The seven round limit will mean that many if not most guns are actually banned, not just assault and semi-autos.

No doubt they will fix this oversight, and make a similar exception for the bodyguards protecting Very Important People and the armed school guards protecting the children of same. For the time being the cops will just wink at this law: who is going to prosecute?
