State Police have updated its field guide to remove enforcement of a seven-bullet magazine limit that was part of last year’s gun-control law.
The provision was tossed by a federal judge Dec. 31, and State Police said after the ruling that it would not enforce the regulation as the case is being appealed.
“While the federal district court upheld most of its provisions, the court held that this section, “Unlawful Possession of Certain Ammunition Feeding Devices,” was unconstitutional,” the updated field guide states. “As a result of the court’s decision members are instructed not to enforce PL 265.37 at this time.”
