That's freaking awesome!
This is a discussion on NY forgot to exempt LEOs from the new law within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I just talked to my friend who is a police officer in NY. The new New York gun laws have no exemptions for Law Enforcement ...
I just talked to my friend who is a police officer in NY. The new New York gun laws have no exemptions for Law Enforcement Officers. Way to go Governor Cuomo!! You just made criminals out of your police force.

Way to go NY Officials! I never been to NY and I never will go. It's a shame to since I have family there.
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
Just wait until they're told they have to turn in their 15 round magazines and their AR's both.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Sad and funny all at the same time.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
Aw come on just get rid off all the guns in NY and the problem will be solved. I'm sure the bad guys will turn theirs in just as soon as the LBC does. When crime rates go up all the uneducated people who voted him in can personally thank him.
Police will no longer need them, just ask the politicians. That's what happens when they hurry to shove legislation down our throats, not that they use their heads anyway.

Yup - so many typos when I was reading through it that I could hardly understand what they were trying to say in some sections. That's what happens when you pass laws without actually reading what it has to say.
I guess all the LEOs in NY who were on duty today will have to go turn themselves in.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
Beautiful! Even more surprising is that they didn't craft an exemption for themselves. You know very well that the Feinstein political types won't give up their carry weapons, even though they're pushing to outlaw them. Kinda like that anti-gun senator from IL that works "security" so he's allowed to carry

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
"We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" hmm. nice job, NY officials.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
