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. (excuse me while I laugh)
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.
A spokesman for the governor’s office says, “We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation.”
State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he’s going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, “You can’t give more ammo to the criminals”
