New York Governor Favors Easing Newly Passed Gun Law

By THOMAS KAPLAN and DANNY HAKIM

Excerpt...

The gun-control law, approved in January, banned the sale of magazines that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. But, Mr. Cuomo said Wednesday, seven-round magazines are not widely manufactured. And, although the new gun law provided an exemption for the use of 10-round magazines at firing ranges and competitions, it did not provide a legal way for gun owners to purchase such magazines.

As a result, he said, he and legislative leaders were negotiating language that would continue to allow the sale of magazines holding up to 10 rounds, but still forbid New Yorkers from loading more than 7 rounds into those magazines.....

Typical New Yorker loves this stone nut. Typical for uninformed idiots that are so busy playing they missed sanity.

“””As a result, he said, he and legislative leaders were negotiating language that would continue to allow the sale of magazines holding up to 10 rounds, but still forbid New Yorkers from loading more than 7 rounds into those magazines.....””””

And just how would this be enforced?

I believe that’s what they call “procrustean bed” legislation.

Cheers!

It does not have to be. Now, mere posession of a magazine is probable cause for a police search to check compliance. Remember how the seat belt laws started out?

Does this mean a “start-up” will begin to manufacture PLUGS the size of 3 cartridges that must be fed into the 10 round magazine to thus limit the number of live rounds?
There is a lot of money to be made with this idea, also many jobs, tax revenues, it sounds wonderful, doesn’t it.
In fact, I’ll start up the company so prospective investors can start sending me their investments.
(Does this sound as dumb as I hope it does?)

As with all things liberal, they're not supposed to be enforced or do any good.

It's just supposed to feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel good.

Sort of like saying that personal spaceships are not widely manufactured. And you are allowed 10 rd magazines at the gun range, but not at home? This must be an old Soviet law that they just had translated.

What remains in the law:
Registration of so called Assault weapons.
Ban on standard cap mags, no grandfathering.
Background checks for ammo purchases.
No more than 7 rounds loaded per mag.
Some other Carp.
If caught violating any of this you are a felon and punished worse than a child molester.

In a related matter, 7-Eleven will sell very large plastic cups, but cannot fill them with soft drinks.

Oh wait, that moronic law got swatted down by a judge. Maybe this one will too.

If I had to guess, I’d say that the Cuomo and Bloomberg families have been inbreeding for a long time. What morons.

Hmm. Dunno. However, a 'round' can be defined (by quisling dunderhead Lib lawyers) as that which expels a single projectile by cycling the action of a firearm once. Thereby making such a 'plug' a 3 'round' affair.

And you know....if such a 'plug' idea caught on, that's exactly how our Government Overlords would define it.

What a perfect description! One thing I love about Free Republic is that I learn so much here. Thank you for posting a term I was unfamiliar with until today! :)

Procrustean bed- n.- An arbitrary standard to which exact conformity is forced. -The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language

...............................


Procrustes and his "magical" bed.


Procrustes (proh-KRUS-teez). A host who adjusted his guests to their bed. Procrustes, whose name means "he who stretches", was arguably the most interesting of Theseus's challenges on the way to becoming a hero. He kept a house by the side of the road where he offered hospitality to passing strangers, who were invited in for a pleasant meal and a night's rest in his very special bed. Procrustes described it as having the unique property that its length exactly matched whomsoever lay down upon it. What Procrustes didn't volunteer was the method by which this "one-size-fits-all" was achieved, namely as soon as the guest lay down Procrustes went to work upon him, stretching him on the rack if he was too short for the bed and chopping off his legs if he was too long. Theseus turned the tables on Procrustes, fatally adjusting him to fit his own bed.

Glad I could be of assistance.

As Mark Twain once said, “The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between the lightning and the lightning-bug.”

Cheers!
