In their over zealous drive to deny law-abiding citizens the right to own firearms, politicos in New York didn’t take into account that cops would also be limited to seven round magazines.
As the statue is written, reports an ABC News affiliate in New York, it does not exempt law enforcement officers from the ban.
“We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation,β said governor Cuomo’s office in response to complaints that cops β both active and retired β will be treated like any other citizen-subject of the state.
State senator and former NYPD captain Eric Adams admitted that the recently enacted gun laws in New York will do little to nothing when it comes to crime and violence.
“You can’t give more ammo to the criminals,β he said in response to the grumbling by cops that they will be limited to seven round clips just like Joe Average citizen.
