    Well if you think about it, that effectively rules out a bunch of guns for sale without modification. They are incrementally chipping away at the ability to obtain and retain guns

    Probably Colt politics with their 1911 knowing someone in power gets the line drawn there. Even their playing field with the plastic guns. Just a thought.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    What about the 8 shot revolvers?
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Even with a magazine limit of 7, that gives you 8 shots with one in the pipe. Is the law worded in such a manner to ban magazines or overall gun capacity? If it only speaks to semi-auto magazines, then 8 shot (or even as with one of my revolvers, 9 shot) revolvers would not be illegal. I haven't spent enough time looking at that garbage bill to know. Especially since I have no intention to ever set foot in NY.

    Its been said that the proposal was originally for 5 rounds.. since the law already was to limit to 10, 7 was the compromise.

    I dont know about 8 shot revolvers though.. those would be mostly 22lr and 22wmr tho wouldnt they? and 22 cal is usually exempt from alot of these laws..

    8 shot revolvers are fairly common in .38 and .357.

    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns other "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!

    How many bottles of Jack you think they drank before they got drunk enough to invite Feinstein to the party!
