Gov. Cuomo’s gun laws bar active duty and retired cops from large magazines - NYPOST.com

    Governor Cuomo's new gun law didn't exempt cops from the large magazine ban, but it's a matter expected to be amended quickly. A stickier issue is whether retired cops get an exemption.
     Advocates claim the ex cops are trained and therefore should get an exemption, but there are lots of people who are trained and responsible. That's why people opposed the hastily passed law that limits gun owners to seven rounds.
     It would seem the only way you get arrested on this is if you are in a shootout and it can be determined you fired more than seven rounds. Like if you killed an intruder in your house, then you could end up being charged.

I knew we had a dumb governor but I never knew he was that dumb. What were the three men in the room doing? Not reading the law they were finagling to pass, that's for sure.

If retired cops are given an exemption then probation officers must be, corrections officer must be any peace office in the state of NY must be and the list goes on and on...
Active cops on duty is fine but theres no reasson to make an exemption for any casual use outside of on the clock duty..

If liberals interpreted the second amendment in the same manner in which they interpret the first amendment, we would all be required to strap fully automatic machine guns to the hoods of our cars.

As it is, our President, law makers and judges ignore the Constitution or twist it to their own purposes.

The revolution was largely spurred by taxation without representation. A worse case exists today. We have both representation without taxation for those who pay nothing as well as disproportionate
taxation and accompanying decreased representation for those that pay nothing.

ala Nancy Pelosi:

"We have to pass the law before we get to see what's in it."

New York is now the laughing stock of the country.

Enjoy your 'change'...
We got EXACTLY what we voted for.

I would think you, as ceo of the corporation of the city,would have a vested interest in this issue.Hypothetically,since the law is passed and in effect,what would happen if a city officer had to shoot someone in the line of duty with a weapon which exceeds the law on magazine capacity?Could the officer then be arrested under state law,or more likely be charged under some federal statute for using an illegal weapon to kill a citizen?And,if this is the case,could the city and by extension,you,be sued by the family of the person killed?

Cuomos' silly "Howard Dean" rant was to get New York to be the first to enact a gun law - and it worked. So now you have to have a 7 round magazine. Go buy 2 and now you have 14 rounds. How stupid is that law? Now just about everybody will be exempt just like the counties who get exempt from Obama Care. Pelosi's home town was one of the first! What's next - only 7 arrows in a quiver?

There is a very strong link between retired police officers, with large magazines, and illegal use of guns. I hear they rob places and murder people all the time. Wha, you're telling me they don't? Well, if we can save one child, it would be worth it. What does a retired cop need a handgun with over seven rounds in it anyway? I'm with Mikey on this one.


WEEE NEEED TOOO STOPPP THE MADDDDNESSSSSSS INN NEWWW YOOOORKKKKKKKKKKKKK
