Did you say you *can* keep your 10 round mags and only load 7? If so then this surprises me.

We still got love for NY Americans. Just not the ones making stupid decisions in congress, or voting. Glad you can move and are doing it. Wish I could move to a free state.

New York is a state known for its natural beauties. Also, there are good folks there who exhibit both political acumen and a genuine warmth and friendliness. Politically, New York is the sum of the majority of its voters. Personally, I find it to be a loathsome place because of that. Let's not forget though that we do have patriotic firearms owners who reside in that state. They may not have the advantages available to them which would allow them to move, or perhaps they have obligations that keep them there of necessity. They may even like the place and feel that they should "stick it out," hoping and fighting for a better day. Analyze why a state in our union can find itself to be a seat of scorn for American liberty as you will but don't paint all of its residents with too broad a brush for some few of them are your patriotic fellow Americans. Those few simply aren't able to prevail in that place at this time.
Let's make certain that the rest of the nation doesn't suffer the fate of the patriotic firearms owners of New York.

On the REALLY amusing side, the doofus politicians who rushed this idiotic bill to the governors desk (so an even bigger idiot could sign it), they forgot to exclude law enforcement. So they are now scrambling to amend the law before it takes effect and the vast majority of police officers in the state become felons.

Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.
IMO.........I believe the good citizens of New York have to pick themselves up and rid the state of these LW political types.....remove them from office......shouldn't be too hard with all the payola and corruption there.....do a little digging and impeach the bastages.
To the OP, I clearly you are not the majority vote. I'm sorry. No busting from me. Get outa Dodge City and good luck.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I wish that there was something we could do to help you with the current situation. Perhaps, when the time comes we can help support the inevitable court case to challenge this nonsense that even the Liberal NPR says was a governor wanting to make a name for himself and get out of his father's shadow.
I feel for the people of New York. You have been screwed by the politictians who took an oath to protect your rights. I hope the next election you people remember what crooks they are. I used to like coming to New York state. No way in hell now.

How come I don`t hear of ANY Marches,Rally`s etc. coming from the Law Abiding Armed Citizens of New York?. Are ALL of you just going to lay down and take it without speaking out publically?. I bet Obama is watching this with a keen eye.
Hopefully New York gun owners will file a class action law suit against NY State. Don't run scared, run to a good attorney...
