Skip to comments.The shot heard íround the state (NY)

Amid all the pious wailing were reading in other papers about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids decision to take a pass on assault weapons, Albany has given us a homegrown reminder what happens when politicians rush to exploit a tragedy.
So desperate was Gov. Cuomo to beat President Obama to the punch on gun control in the immediate aftermath of the Newtown massacre, the gun law that was passed made magazines with more than seven rounds of ammunition illegal.
One problem: No one seems to make seven-round magazines...
(Excerpt) Read more at nypost.com ...
Next up - revolvers can only be loaded with 3 rounds, plus you have to spin the barrel. /sarc
Gee, I wonder what they’d say if you loaded 7 in the mag, plus one in the chamber, hammer back, safety on...
I wonder if their reaction to that would be similar to throwing water on the wicked witch of the west???
I’m jus’ sayin’...
I believe the Walther PPS has a 6 or 7 round mag.
Legal to in NY.
Yup. I have four 1911s and 12 seven round mags. And the jerks who write articles about clips holding bullets are even more clueless assholes.
We need to spread the word far and wide that King Andrew rushed in where fools dare not go. He raced to beat Obama to the punch and got left out on the limb alone. King Andrew screwed up.
*Simply ignores the law, as the law itself is illegal*
Time to stand up, people. Flagrantly show it.
Ditto the Colt Mustang/Pocketlite Plus II and the Government .380 (which are all basically the same gun, allowing for differences like alloy/stainless).
Seven plus one. Condition III carry, (half) cocked and locked.
Astra Constables are the same capacity, iirc.
Ditto the Ruger LC9 9mm. 7+1.
“...if the governor hadnt bypassed the constitutionally mandated three-day waiting period for legislation”
I understand that there was a way around this that Cuomo actually complied with? Something about signing a declaration or something of an emergency? Does anyone know about this? It would really be WONDERFUL if he screwed up in a way that would cause the law to be overturned but I’m not holding my breath.
“And the jerks who write articles about clips holding bullets are even more clueless assholes.”
LOL! Agree. And, not many who read your posting caught it either. Hannity is one of the worse at saying clip, even though he claims to having packed for the past twenty years, claims to be an expert shot, etc. However, he was never in the military., There’s nothing like doing push-ups to help ones memory get things right :)
I use 8 round Wilson Combat mags in mine.
It’s called a “Message of Necessity,” and has been used and abused by Prince Andrew many times since he became governor. It’s interesting that it was critical to pass this law in the middle of the night as an emergency, yet most of the provisions don’t take effect for many months. The traitorous legislators who signed onto this law never read the damn thing (sound familiar?). They don’t understand the law today and the certainly didn’t understand it when they voted on it. They are dipshits. And the Republicans are just as responsible.
Frankly, the 7 round limit and standard capacity magazine restrictions are the least of my worries. I am more concerned with the registration aspect of the law and the non-transferability. As it stands now, within a generation there will be no more legal sporting black rifles in NY.
There are two lawsuits directly challenging the law on several grounds that are pending in state and federal court as of now. Things will start getting interesting in the next few months.
Most popular Semi-Auto pistols no longer have a safety. Some are double action only. The hand wringing crowd may get upset over that horrendous safety issue that presents, but that is the way it is.
My wife has a pocket 32, I have a pocket 380, no safety on either, and they are double action only, they both always have chambered rounds.
And, if you turn in your next door neighbor for having an illegal firearm you win $500 NY TaxSuckerBucks! Wheeeee!

It does little good for us to get hung up on terminology, the clip misnomer has been around since all the WW II movies. Hand me another clip Joe! Valid with M1 Garand, not with M1 Carbine, but I doubt any movie ever pointed out the difference. Hand me another magazine Joe, just doesnt have the same flow does it?
