Oops: In Gun Grab Rush, Idiot Cuomo Forgets to Exempt Police From New Law

Posted by on Jan 17, 2013 at 6:26 pm

I guess they had to read the legislation eventually to find out what was in it.

These people are dangerously stupid. Not a single person stopped to think about whether any of these meaningless laws would affect the police? Fucking idiots.

It appears someone forgot to exempt police officers from the ban of ammunition clips with more than 7 bullets in New York State’s new gun control law.

It’s a big oversight that apparently happened in the haste by the Cuomo Administration to get a tough package of gun-control measures signed into law.

A big oversight, huh? Yeah, well, stuff happens when you’re busy trampling the rights of the law-abiding.

On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the sweeping gun measure, the nation’s toughest. It includes a ban on the possession of high-capacity magazines.

Specifically, magazines with more than 7 rounds will be illegal under the new law.

The problem as the statute is currently written does NOT exempt law enforcement officers.

The NYPD, the State Police and virtually every law enforcement agency in the state carry 9-milli-meter guns, which have a 15-round capacity.

Unless an exemption is added by the time the law takes effect in March, police would technically be in violation of the new gun measure.

Abject stupidity, but entirely predictable. We surmise if anyone actually asked Cuomo he’d have no idea what the police carry. And don’t forget, this is the same guy who said he could “overpower the extremists” with “intelligence and with reason and with common sense.”

    Some reporters need to learn what they’re reporting about.
    The line “…carry 9-milli-meter guns, which have a 15-round capacity…”, as written, implies that 9mm guns have a 15-round capacity. 9mm pistols come in several models, with magazines varying from 7 to 17. 15 is probably the most common.
    So I’m sure the legislature will amend the law for law enforcement and military weapons, but the law itself is still a foolish idea. And besides, the current law enforcement magazines should be grandfathered…

    What an idiot. Hopefully someone will get fired over it but in true progressive form they’ll probably be promoted. Is Cuomo done shouting yet?

    “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”

    What??? Why would criminals have more ammo? The law states 7 rounds only!!!

    Surely the criminals are retrofitting their guns right now…

    The average NYPD officer, involved in an actual shooting, empties his weapon and reloads. Why would anyone want them to fire 15 rounds without aiming and with no regard to bystanders?

    Wow. This idiot Cuomo wants to run for president and he can’t even pass a bill without total glaring errors that a 5th grader would have caught? What a moron this man is. I think from now until mid 2015, that every day an article regarding how stupid he was to author and pass this bill should appear where millions can read it..every day. It should become: a long living meme, a legend, a curse, whatever it takes to knock this guy out from any chance to run in 2016. Hillary has already been neutralized by Benghazi from any meaningful chance in 2016, lets work on this blaring idiot

    No no no! It’s not a mistake, it’s a sign of how urgently this legislation was needed!

    And when they amend it to allow LEOs to have higher capacity than other citizens, the statute immediately becomes unconstitutional under both the Constitution of the United States (14th Amendment) AND the New York State Constitution (Article 1, Section 11).

    Nice going, Evil Eyes Cuomo!

    I agree that the police should be exempted. Its common sense.

    But I would like to have them provide a detailed explanation of the reasons they need higher capacity magazines and their benefits before they amend this stupid law because those would completely or mostly be the same reasons that a law abiding citizen would need or want higher capacity magazines.

    Seriously, why don’t they just pass a law that the gun control measures only apply to those involved in illegal activity? They can’t do that because they would be forced to admit it would be completely ineffective.

    A government that infringes on the rights of its citizens in order to “protect” them? What’sthat called again?

    A government that exepts LEOs from said law. Who are you making it safer for, Gov?

    Not us. WTF?

    For the last freaking time, it’s not a “clip” or a “magazine clip” or a “mag clip” or a “clip mag”. It’s a “bullet thingy”.

    How is it that NY so quickly put together and passed the gun law but people who lost their homes throughout NY and NJ are waiting over 2 months for help from government and insurers?
