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.”
