My home state would probably jump at the opportunity to lure Remington and Kimber. I just don't know that we could offer as much incentive as would TX or NM!
On a serious note, this law is clearly unconstitutional and will be challenged in the courts. Anyone think that practicing civil disobedience as did MLK will be the new norm in NY?
One other thing to consider about all this is the NRA and other "national" groups are going to be forced to apply their resources to the larger fight first and foremost. I'm sure the NRA would love to start hammering New York, but they would be hard pressed to come up with a rational reason to exert time and money on a 'lost cause' when there's a larger and even more important fight going on at a national level.
I'm not suggesting that they will give up you folks, but they are going to be limited in what resources they can bring to bear. I don't know how strong any state group is up there, but those folks are the ones who will be front lining the resistance to this legislation.
Reality is, combat-useful means just that, that when a person's in a life-or-death situation the feature helps make the tool practical enough to matter: barrel (and the ubiquitous barrel "shrouds" (hand burn avoidance fore stocks), trigger, a given caliber with enough punch to put down an assailant, sufficient capacity to put down an assailant, sufficient accuracy (inherently or with added sighting/aiming devices) to put down an assailant, etc.
This is insane, I am thankful I don't live in New York.
7 round mag limit in New York?? Bring it on.
What's sad is with current demand on backlog on magazines I doubt many manufactures will be able to produce enough 7 round magazines to resupply all now legal gun owners in New York.
I would not sell one magazine if I lived there, that's all I'll say. This will be challenged. At the very least a mag modification (pin) should be acceptable if there are no 7 round mags available.
Everyone take note. Many more tricks like this are likely to used by Obama with EO on a national level. He will leave us with our right to bear arms, but they will be useless ineffective pieces of plastic and steel without ammo.
I've met several vendors, and know many people that winter in Florida. They all say the same thing about the NYers that come to Florida, "Leave your stupid ideas there, you are here for a reason..."
Apparently the displaced NYers who wanted more freedom are trying to make Florida more like NY. An interesting thing that has been told to me for the last 5-6 years now.
At least Florida has term limits that they enforce for politicians. I wish Wisconsin had that. Instead, we get reject politicians in almost every job.
Man, you can't have a decent sized soft drink in New York, you can't have a gun with the designed number of rounds either. I wonder if an 8 round revolver is even legal once the law goes into effect.
The criminals can do as they please, but the law abiding citizens can't. How sad is that?
