Skip to comments.Oops: New York Governor Wants to Repeal Own Gun Control Law
Posted on 03/21/2013 6:59:06 PM PDT by lowbridge
When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hastily signed a gun control law limiting New Yorkers to just seven round ammunition magazines, he forgot to exempt police officers. Now, Cuomo is looking to reverse the seven-round magazine portion of the law all together due to seven round magazines not existing in the market place. New Yorkers will still be required to only carry seven bullets at a time in their standard issue 10-round magazines.

Can you carry more than 7 if you use a buddy system?
So, what’s the extra room for? Medical marijuana?
Your buddy may be awful heavy to carry just so you can have more rounds than 7. :)
Easy enough. Go to plain vanilla 1911 45acp, and you have your 7-rounders.
More effective than the pansynines, too.
The mags I was issued with my M16, by the Marine Corps, were all 20 round. I don’t think 10 round mags are standard except in certain Blue States. 30 are basically standard now days.
What’s a Browning Hi Power hold ?
Can’t be much more than 7 or 8...
Headline is misleading. There is a lot more to this unSAFE law than the 7 round limit. Much more. And Prince Andrew is not trying to repeal any of it.
WHY has this PRICK not yet been recalled?!
Incest showing it’s ugly head. New Yorkers are insane voting in the same crapola politicians over and over.
Cuomo, you should be in an asylum.
Gov KOOMO, you are one DUMSUMBITCH!
There’s a Barney Fife joke somewhere around here.
And much harder to conceal........
Wrong, wrong, wrong. The Browning P35 Hi Power was the first of the double column 9mm pistols. It holds 13+1. The .40 S&W variant holds 10+1. The P35 is a single action pistol — the hammer has to be manually cocked for the first shot (if it is down on a loaded chamber).
As far as I know, NY has no provision for recall elections.
Back to belt fed weapons only. They don’t have magazines.
Same reason so many PRICKS are running our country into the ground; morons vote. Actually it’s not retarded people, it’s lazy, evil people.
....a natural dumb@$$
Yeesh! I own magazines capable of holding more than seven rounds. I don’t live in New York, and I NEVER considered doing any of those things that Gov COOKOO is talkin’ about.
I think you forgot the "sarcasm" icon.
(For the few here who are not admirers of John Moses Browning, the Browning P35 (model 1935) has come equipped with 13 round magazines from the factory since the beginning, hence the designation "Hi-Power". Mec-Gar makes a flush-fitting 15 round magazine with a thinner follower. This is pre-WW2 technology. Browning/FN has made 10 round magazines since the old AWB days and for Bolshevik US states, but they're probably ROFL at the thought of making 7 round magazines just for New York. Nobody is gonna bother to make 7 round mags for anything except a 1911.)
The hi-power, named for its mag capacity, holds 13. 13 nine isn’t really all that impressivve either.
Someone good at swapping mags can get 14 45’s out almost as fast as a hi-power guy can pull the trigger.
you can have seven in the magazine and one in the pipe, you’re down a whole two. this is such a stupid law about a thousand ways to sunday.
Cuomo discovered the affair when he walked in on the lovers; that the other man is a wealthy, polo-playing, 50-year-old restaurateur and bon vivant named Bruce Colley.
“WHY has this PRICK not yet been recalled?!”
#1 There is no mechanism for recall in NY State.
#2 Even if there was recall in NY he wouldn’t be worried. Due to the assholes who make up the bulk of the downstate population Andy Cuomo has a favorability rating of over 60%.
We can bitch and moan and tell the Dems in NY we won’t vote for them due to their stance on guns. Guess what? They just laugh, in some cases literally, in our faces.
How many ounces of softdrink, how many bullets, etc. New York State is beyond silly. Limiting number of children will be next, unless those children can be bioengineered to follow a homosexual lifestyle.
He probably was paying more attention to his male “interns” than to his beard/wife.
***and you have your 7-rounders.***
Place the magazine in the pistol, load a round in the chamber. You now have a magazine with six rounds in it.
Drop the magazine and replace the one round. Now you have one in the chamber, and seven in the magazine.
If you have to shoot, count your rounds, after seven is fired, you will still have one in the chamber to take care of anyone rushing you as you change magazines.
I’ve had several BHPs. The one with adjustable sights was extremely accurate.
Those with fixed sights would give good tight clusters, but not at point of aim.
Wish I still had the adjustable one.
Yep. And with a worked-in magshift, you have a full mag before the empty hits the ground.
I did paint the front sight with optic orange fingernail polish and squared out the back sight, but the fast round has low recoil and huge punch inside fifty yards. I like them so much that I bought four extra mags at 425 each, to up the carrying capacity.
The mags are nine rounds and I always have one up the spout with the hammer in a sort of half cocked position so to fire, the hammer must get cocked. The rounds will punch through soft body armor, but follow-up shots are quick and accurate.
Personally, I see, in the case of rifles, a huge resurgence of the pump action rifle and the tubular magazine. Some semis could also adopt the tube magazine, or fixed rotary mags, similar to the old Model 99 Savage(if the rotary was engineered correctly they could be recharged quite quickly with stripper clips). Some .22s still have tubular mags and they are quite legal in most states(probably all)with the new tech in bullet design that allows pointed bullets to be safely loaded in a tube mag, this would satisfy many hunters and some people for their self defense guns.
However, I would hope that the people vote these gun grabbing a**hats out of office in 2014 and solve the problem with repeals.
What is it with all the deceptive headlines? I know at newspapers, the copyeditors write the headlines. Did they just lay off a bunch of people or what?
Years ago, when California prepared the law to ban AW rifles, Neal KNOX spilled the beans showing that it originally was written to also ban tube fed rifles.
Yes, but the law didn’t go into effect that way. In CA tube fed weapons are still legal, but I think they are trying to pass an amendment to outlaw them. I don’t think it will pass, but you never know, what will all the commies in the senate and house, not to mention the Governor.
