    7 round mag limits in NY

    I hope the link works. Looks like NY will be a much safer place, now that Cuomo made it illegal to possess anything over 7 rounds.

    I'm sorry to anyone who lives up there.

    I bet there'll be a lot of rapid mag change practice.

    Congratulations on effectively making everyone in the state carry a compact 1911.

    Yeah. A test of who's got courage enough to breach a blood oath to protect and defend the Constitution and defy the People.

    (Am assuming the swearing-in oath is much the same in NY as elsewhere. Am assuming these folks have sworn to uphold, protect and defend it at least once. Am assuming that "swearing" in NY has about as much meaning as elsewhere [more's the pity].)

    New York Limits Capacity to 7 - no Grandfathering

    I searched but couldn't find this topic. Also, since this is the only subforum I frequent, I figured I'd post it here and let it land where it may.

    EDIT - Nevermind, I see someone posted it in the concealed carry subforum a few minutes ago - EDIT

    So, it appears NY will be signing into law that you have to sell your "high capacity" 10 round mags out of state within a year and now 7 is the limit. No Grandfathering this time.

    "Assault rifles" must be registered and any sell to a non-family member will be through an FFL.

    Voted 48-13.

    So, how will that work? Do they even make 7 round 9mm 1911 mags or 7 round anything really besides those designed for that now like 1911's chambered in 45 with GI mags and sub compacts?

    I felt for you guys before, but this is just insanity.

    That tends to happen when a single (left-leaning) city dominates an entire state.

    New York, Statue of Liberty, a bold free people, gateway to America, a thing of the past. No reason to even go there anymore. If every business owner and solid legal citizen carried a Glock 19 OC in that place it would be a completely different and mostly crime free city. They're too busy controlling calories and breast milk. It really is sad what the symbols of the USA have become.

    In two states, for sure, and in the big one with several megacities. Cali, NY and IL account for over 20% of the total population of the entire country. I guess we can throw in NJ in to bring the total number of Americans currently living under severe Second Amendment repression up to one in four.

    I propose we turn the Statute of Liberty around, to face the other way. To face away from NYC, to face toward a comparatively open and free society ... New Jersey.

    Re: 7 round mag limits in NY

    Well now the criminals know that new yorkers are horribly under-armed.

    I wonder how many of them will flee, now that they're being systematically disarmed, leaving them more and more defenseless against criminals & the State.

    Notice how in all these places the monopoly of force resides with the criminal element, and the state. Could it be that's because they're of the same mind-set?

    So - is Glock now supposed to make a 7-rd mag for the Glock 19, etc?

    This is crazy.

    It looks like it will go through. I hope it gets thrown out in court. Ugh.

    I could not tell from the article if this is a "turn them all in" ban or a "grandfather" ban. Does anybody know? Given the political climate up there and the fact that Cuomo has been tossing the "C" word around, I would suspect the former.

    They must be sold or turned in within a year.

    Well as long as the criminals, the police, the military, any and all foreign armies stick to 7 round mags, I don't see a problem.
    I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.
