Additions to be made to gun laws for law enforcement
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.
Anyone surprised? And why, if a police officer defending himself/herself from assailants needs a clip larger than 7 rounds, does a civilian similarly defending himself or herself not need a large clip? Do the police magically appear when the seventh round is fired? Will the assailants pause for their intended victim to reload? Why do I suspect at least one legislator who opposed this travesty noticed, but didn’t point out, this stupid omission?
