This simply illustrates the lack of fundamental logic and intellectual curiosity of those who ruthlessly pursue political agendas and shameless politicize tragedies. It also showcases the chasm of where we’ve come from as a nation of self reliant individualists to where we find ourselves now…a nation of coddled, dependant and entitled crybabies.
Cuomo and legislative leaders said after announcing a budget deal Wednesday night that they will continue to discuss changes in January’s gun control law before a provision kicks in banning the sale of 10-bullet magazines.
The gun measure outlaws the purchase of any magazines that carry more than seven bullets, the nation’s most stringent limit. That would have put a severe limit on the sale of guns with industry-standard 10-bullet magazines when the provision of the law went into effect April 15.
“There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn’t exist, so you really have no practical option,” [no shit] Cuomo said. He told reporters that any suggestion this will be a rollback of the law is “wholly without basis.”
Cuomo said the state needs to allow the sale of handguns and rifles with 10-shot magazines, but New Yorkers will still be required to keep no more than seven bullets in them, except at shooting ranges and competitions. [really??] Violating the seven-bullet limit is a misdemeanor but a violation if the magazine is in the owner’s home.
Cuomo minimized the cleanup now needed in the bill as addressing “ambiguities” and “grammatical errors” and routine for complex measures. They include exempting police and their weapons and allowing Hollywood to continue to film violent movies and TV shows in New York using weapons outlawed under his measure. [Of course…care not for the citizens of your state, but make sure you take care of those with money and influence]
Allowing banned guns and magazines for the filming of violent TV shows and movies, but not for law abiding citizens……makes as much sense as outlawing prostitution but not pornography.
