    NY: Good News... Still Bad News

    NY is discussing allowing the sale of 10 round mags again. Unfortunately, stupidity is still rampant there.

    Instead, Cuomo says changes are being considered to allow the purchase of 10-bullet magazines. But the law would still prohibit more than seven bullets in magazines except at shooting ranges and in competitions.

    By offering this change, Cuomo is at least admitting the impracticality of banning all but 7 round mags. I am curious, however, how they intend to enforce a law allowing only 7 rounds in a 10 round mag?

    Hopefully, the same way the Colorado Sheriffs said they would enforce their law.

    It's easy. Everybody knows that 10 round magazines that are loaded to the hilt are evil. And we are taught from a very early age to keep an eye out for evil

    I was/am curious to see who the first manufacturer would be to start making 7 round limited mags. The next markets for limited mags other than Colorado is going to be Maryland, they have a 96 page gun control bill that is virtually guaranteed to pass and be signed.

    By stopping each and every person seen/suspected having a magazine or firearm, no doubt. If I were to guess, probably little different than AR15-shaped .22LR rifles in the hands of kids are "enforced."

    The legal challenges to NY's draconian gun laws could not come soon enough.

    People busts their butt,well most anyway,and they decide to spend their money on a firearm,and then it becomes useless,because of the N.Y. mag ban.People put 100's of dollars on a firearm,and can't use it,because there is no 7 rd mag,for what they bought.That was just dirty,doing that to people.They have a right to be pi---- off.

    Cuomo is an idiot plain and simple. They have till 4/29/13 to prove this load of garbage safe act is constitutional or the injunction goes through in the courts.

    It makes perfect sense to the New York liberals . . . you can carry your gun with 10 rounds in the 10 round magazine while target shooting or shooting competively, but must take out 3 rounds while carrying the same gun to defend your life.

    Unfortunately that doesn't help when most people carry Glocks, Sprigfield XDs, etc.

    Hopefully none of the manufacturers will make 7 round mags for what was designed as a higher cap firearm. If 7 round mags are available, then the gubmint will notice, and start mandating them.

    I hope not also. The ignorant politicians ignore the reality that a well practiced user with a revolver (not at all addressed in the ban) can reload just about as fast as someone using a mag fed weapon.

    Just a couple of thoughts. NY has had a 10 round mag limit for ages. If you currently have 10 round mags they are legal as long as you promise to only load 7. If you legally bought your gun in NYS you had a 10 round mag so there is no reason to have to get rid of it. Again promise to load only 7.

    Perhaps NYS is trying to get the sale of "pocket pistols" , Kahrs, Nanos, and such increased as they have 6 or 7 round mags.

    So in NY are you in more trouble filling a 10 round mag or having a 18 round mag?
