    Post Cuomo Backs Down on Gun Magazine Limits

    Haven't seen this posted yet...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that he will seek to ease state regulations setting limits on gun-magazine capacities, saying the new law had proven unworkable even before its scheduled April 15 enactment.

    In the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, Cuomo signed into law a bill with some of the toughest gun restrictions in the country, including the provision to ban the sale of magazine capacities with more than seven rounds of ammunition.

    That measure proved unworkable because most gun manufacturers make magazines which contain at least ten rounds, the New York Times reported.

    “There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine,” Cuomo said at a news conference on Wednesday. “That doesn’t exist. So you really have no practical option.”

    Cuomo said he was working with the legislature on a new measure that would allow the sale of ten-round magazines, but only allow gun owners to load seven rounds, The Times reported.

    The governor’s action didn’t appease pro-gun groups which have railed against the bill since it was passed in January.

    “It’s a weak attempt to try to get around a number of either contradictions or unconstitutional issues that are inherent in the legislation,” Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, told the Buffalo News.

    All I can add to this is my girlfriends uncle came down for a few days who lives on Long Island. I asked him about the new legislation and he told me people are really up in arms about the whole situation. He also explained to me what you had to do to have a weapon. For instance.... if I wanted to sell him mine I cannot. First he has to go to the local office in his town and ask if he can purchase it. After doing so I can sell it to him. Next, he has to go back to the office and show them a bill of sale. Next, he has to bring the weapon in (not at the same time as showing them the bill of sale) All weapons he has been given permission to have are stamped on the back of the license.

    OK, OK, I'm going to let you put that 10 round mag in your firearm, but you can ONLY put 7 rounds in it! Huh?

    New York is just ONE of the reasons the South will rise again. With brain surgeons like Bloomberg and Cuomo running the show up North,
    shouldn't take much.

    My Kahr P9 has a 7 "bullet" magazine. Works well, but the bullets rattle around a lot when I insert them on their own. It works better when I use entire rounds.

    Cuomo hasn't been right about anything gun related so far, so his mag assertion comes as no surprise. Reckon anyone on his staff knows about .45 single-stackers?

    Excellent example of unintended consequences. All New Yorkers would soon be packing 1911's to comply with the "gun control" laws....

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I keep reading these threads BUT NY has had a 10 round limit for years. Also as many pointed out there are 5,6,and7 round mags for the true pocket pistols.

    Cuomo should already be convicted and awaiting sentencing for treason for what he has done, along with every co-conspirator in the NYS legislature. Instead he's here making the most pitiful of concessions so that this law will be just tolerable enough for people in that state. Absolutely pathetic.

    This is all peanuts compared to what we have to go through in Costa Rica. Here's the process for purchasing a Glock 19:

    1) Pass a Psychological Exam ($75.00)
    2) Pass a Written & Practical Firearm Proficiency Exam ($50.00)
    3) Pass a Background Check
    4) Photocopy of your Photo ID
    5) Submit your Fingerprints at the Public Security Ministry (3-4 hour wait in line)
    6) Purchase Notary Stamps ($10.00)
    7) Pay for your Glock 19 at the Local Gun Shop ($1,200)
    8) Complete an Application with all your contact info, the firearm's serial number, model, and make and then have it notarized ($50.00)
    9) Wait approximately 30-45 days for the approval of your CCL and firearm registration card
    10) Go pick up your CCL and firearm registration card at the Firearms and Explosives Department (4-5 hour wait in line)

    After the whole process you spent $1,200 on a handgun that is twice as expensive than in the US and for which you could get an HK, Kimber or Sig Sauer in North America, $185.00 - $200.00 on bureaucratic BS and other expenses like gas, food, and supplies, 7-9 hours of boredom standing in line, and 30-45 days of waiting for your permit while you are left defenseless living in one of the regions of the World (Central America) with the highest homicide and which is currently flooded by drug cartels from Mexico and Colombia and AK-47s sell in the street for only $100!

    Yeah, I'd take the regulations in California, New York, Massachusetts, or Illinois in a heartbeat over ours!
