    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.

    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.

    They wanted 5. I believe someone who wanted to keep Kimber in NY managed to negoiate it up to 7.

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