    Under previous laws pistol magazines were limited to 10 rounds, did you notice the new NY law reduces that to 7 rounds? You know why they did that, the new law requires anyone who posses a weapon that conformed to previous laws will now have to register those weapons, and reducing the magazine count casts a much wider net for registration. I doubt this law will withstand a court challenge but they want to know everyone that has a gun.

    A magazine is a box with a spring in it. Right now people are making them at the kitchen tables and garage work benches all over the state.

    IN NYC all legal are Individually Registered. What would be interesting is seeing All Police Officers, Federal, State, and Local, forced to comply with the Regulations they impose on the Free People, of NY. ...... Wait, we aren't exactly free now are we. In spite of the Grand Illusion, I think All Law Enforcement should be limited to Fire Arms with 7 round capacity. Further, Politicians should all give up the Special Privilege of Armed Security. After all, it is so much safer here now. So I hear, anyway. From the Governor, to the Mayor of NYC, an example needs to be set.

    Like you. You obviously need someone to guide you and lead you, in most aspects of daily life, from hygiene to, how to dress, prepare meals, chew before you swallow. ;) Do us a favor and leave us out of it. You may find comfort in having the important decisions in your life made for you, but not all of us feel about things the way you do. Just a thought. :)

    Now this expost facto law will require the whole state to register weapons that complied with existing law, with the exception of most revolvers. I don't know any semi auto pistol that is produced with a 7 round magazine, which will effectively ban new sales.

    The Constitution is not amendable by referendum.
