"Limiting the number of bullets in a magazine to 7effectively eliminates a tremendous percentage of guns that will be "legal" in NY."
You said it right there--it eliminates a tremendous number of guns!

They could make the mag for one round for all I care. I am not going to jeopardize my family in a home defense situation by limiting the number of rounds my firearm can hold. MY FN 5.7x28 holds 20 rounds and 1 in the chamber. You better believe every one of those 21 rounds will be in that firearm for home defense. If I am CC, I usually carry a smaller firearm, which happens to hold less than 7 rounds, but if I choose to CC the larger firearm, it will still have its 21 rounds for self defense. I will be damned if some slimy piece of turd politician is going to make rules that risk my life. Somehow think that if I am dead, I will not be a happy camper knowing that I obeyed this crap.
7 - they put a bunch of paper slips with numbers on them in a hat, then drew one out to determine the mag capacity limit.
They accidentally grabbed the hat's size tag.
Good thing it wasn't a size 6 7/8.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
I read on a news site earlier today that the N.Y. law is getting taken to court by some group. I`m at work and did not have a cahance to get the details. I`m getting old and slow.

quick question just because I dont know, does this mean 7 on the person, or per gun cause I carry a back up, and it would be pretty silly to only carry a couple bullets in each gun! I know it might be a dumb question but I just wanted to ask
Because 7 is a lucky number. They think gun fights work out with one shot kills like in the movies. So in their minds 7 is more than enough. :)
Come on....if you need more than 7 rounds, you need to take another shooting class. We all know that criminals stand still and never shoot back (just like paper targets) so in essence, all you will need is 3. But then you will probably be considered a cowboy because you shot him once in the head. Come to think of it, one to the heart is all you need, so why carry more than one round? Wow. Once you get going on this train of thought, it just keeps going. I should run for office as a liberal democRAT. I certainly qualify.
