    Most people are wrong about the NY mag limit law

    I just read the FAQ site and it says:

    Q. What if I have a magazine that can contain more than ten rounds?

    A. You can permanently modify the magazine so that it holds no more than ten rounds, responsibly discard it, or sell it to a dealer or an out of state purchaser by January 15, 2014.


    Forum posters have been saying that they can still own a 10-round mag as long as they don't load more than seven rounds in it. According to the site, this is incorrect.

    So my next question is, how exactly are gun owners supposed to modify their magazines? Stuff them with chewing gum? Of course, we all know that modifying magazines can render the mag inoperative or at least cause problems. That's probably what they actually want anyway.

    You can put a block under the spring that only allows it to compress enough to take 7 rounds.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.

    First it was 30.
    Then 10.
    Now 7.

    They wont stop until it is ZERO.

    I see. And then once it gets down to one, it'll be restricted to .22 caliber or smaller. Because, hey, "you don't need a bigger bullet to kill a pigeon!"

    I honestly believe that most gun owners don't understand this, that the goal is total disarmament.

    Start buying stock in sling shot companies. It may be all we have left. Of course we can only carry 7 rocks in our pockets at any one time.

    They originally wanted a limit of 5 rounds, and compromised with 7. go figure.
    They also wanted a limit of 2 magazines per gun.

    OP - For the sake of clarity...

    It has been illegal to buy new magazines that can take more than 10 rounds in NY for a very long time...since 1994. Mags that hold more than 10 bought before then were grandfathered, and therefore legal to own. Now, those mags will need to be sold out of state, discarded, or permanently modified to hold no more than 10. Unless you are at a range, you cannot load more than 7. A block inside the mag will probably not be enough, as that is not a permanent modification.

    The details and dates when the various aspects of the new NY law take effect are here:

    Gun Reforms 2013 Initiatives - Frequently Asked Questions | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

    This new law is on the fast track to a court challenge. Hopefully most of it gets thrown out before it even takes effect.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    What's most unbelievable to me is that people seem to accept a precedent that allows the government to legislate that you must relinquish property that you acquired legally for "public safety." Never mind that it is about guns, it is a ridiculous precedent to set for any property.

    How many people would accept this if say it was about physical hard drives, and from now on you had to save everything to an external server (the cloud). Lets say the excuse the government used was the prevention of child porn, if everything weresaved to the cloud it could be monitored for illegal content. It's for the safety of the children after all, you can't be against the kids right?

    I would imagine most people would be opposed to legislation making it a felony to own physical hard drives, but who knows the way our society is going.

    Confused???? You state the above is from the NY FAQ site....... It is my understanding NY is limiting magazines to 7 rounds. However what you posted states one can have a 20 or 30 round magazine as long as they permanently modify it to hold 10 rounds........

    Ah, yes, watching America crumble was exactly what I thought I'd witness...not
    My grandfather told me this would happen. Kinda eerie but this is what the majority of Americans wanted. They elected this group of people to dictate...to those who voted for him or didn't vote at all...enjoy the chaos, you voted for it

    Putting a plug in the magazine to limit rounds, ala shotgun style, does not "permanently" modify the magazine. That would only be a temporary modification, easily reversed.

    Sorry about the confusion, folks. And honestly, I find the NY law to be a bit confusing anyway, and maybe that's what they actually want.
