They kneeded to pass it to find out what’s in it.
A troubling oversight has been found within New York State’s sweeping new gun laws. The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it’s written, would also include law enforcement officers.
Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March. As the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers.
Hey, I was jokin‘ (comment #10), ’cause that would’a been sooo friggin’ obvious and hilarious.
(What? Yeah … I wonder what other brilliant oversights are in there.)
What a goat-rope.
Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity. … The Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President released a statement saying, “The PBA is actively working to enact changes to this law that will provide the appropriate exemptions from the law for active and retired law enforcement officers.”
Cops are different than citizens, then.
Step umpteumpth in asserting state monopoly on the legitimate use of deadly force.
State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he’s going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, “You can’t give more ammo to the criminals”
Wait … what ?!
That doesn’t even make sense.
(What? Yeah, I know. What did I expect? *sigh*)
Besides, since when do firearms laws apply to criminals?
Hurry up and legislate.
It’s either that or think.
Hey, what could go wrong?
Every legislator who voted for this abomination is a flaming incompetent,
and every governor who signed it is an arrogant, incompetent, dictatorial jackass.
