BREAKING: NY Federal Judge Strips 7-10 Rule from NYS Gun Law

Majority of the SAFE Act was upheld.

A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that New York’s expanded ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines was constitutional, but struck down a provision forbidding gun owners from loading their firearms with more than seven rounds.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and lawmakers passed the new legislation, among the most restrictive in the country, in January in response to the mass shooting last December at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The judge, William M. Skretny of Federal District Court in Buffalo, called the seven-round limit “an arbitrary restriction” that violated the Second Amendment.

Quote: The judge, William M. Skretny of Federal District Court in Buffalo, called the seven-round limit “an arbitrary restriction” that violated the Second Amendment.

But Judge Skretny said the greater restrictions on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines were constitutional because they served to “further the state’s important interest in public safety.”


It's a (very small) win so I guess we can be happy about that, but, seriously judge? Seriously?

A 7-round limit is arbitrary and that is why it's unconstitutional, but outright banning of an entire class of firearms (and a made-up class at that) for no logical reason at all is just peachy because it's not arbitrary?

Dafuq is he smoking?

So, what is the mag limit now? Ten rounds? SMFH

7 rounds is arbitrary , 10 is constitutional. Sounds about right

About the same as "all guns are fine except those types over there that we don't like the looks of".

We can't neglect our responsibilities about voting and our participation in the political process and think the judges will sort it all out later on, because we're too busy watching Judge fucking Wapner or some shit.

I can remember no explanation from the NYS regarding how the 7 round rule came about.

Hence the arbitrary nature.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

These judges are political hacks. Not ruling on anything based on the Constitution.
