    Default NY: Every Cop in the State Carrying ILLEGAL ARMS

    ..

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- 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.
    Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state
    carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.



    A spokesman for the governor's office called Eyewitness News to say, "We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation."


    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."


    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"


    Just Us.

    It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen
    to set brush fires in peoples minds! Revolution is Action upon Revelation!

    The small green parakeet, Tito, was flung helplessly from the cage, landing on the floor. When a girl screamed, the officer sneerd:
    "F*** THE BIRD !!!"
    ...and stomped on it with his jackboot. READ MORE: http://www.policestateusa.com/2013/n...lugo-parakeet/

    They have a year to register them, before they become illegal right?

    Or are magazines already illegal

    edit: Looks like there is no grandfathering for magazines, but they do have a year to comply I think

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    The real criminals committing crime with fire arms are not going to give a darn about how much ammo they can and cant have. They love rules to disarm the public from them.

    The real criminals are also the cops that will be enforcing these illegal unconstitutional laws.

    Can anyone explain to me the argument on why RETIRED police would be exempt? Aren't retired police citizens? What about retired military? No exemption for them?

    My local leaders haven't been able to explain why some citizens would be exempt and others would not to me.
