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.
