      Shows how much thought goes into these laws, no "knee jerk" reaction here. I have so much faith in the elected officials in this country sometimes

      Actually, ACTIVE LEO's are exempt. The amendment is for RETIRED LEO's.

      My understanding is that, while the statute's language itself did not articulate an exemption, the "enabling" or "purposing" language which introduced the legislation into both legislative chambers, did. It is this which the Governor apparently relied upon when at least one NY State Sheriff protested that active LEO's were not exempt and Cuomo responded that they were.Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

      Ten round mags are legal, but you can only put seven rounds in the magazine unless your at a gun range then you can load the mag with ten rounds..silliest bit of legislation .you are not allowed ten rounds for home or carry. They must have had a dart board. " ok let's see how many rounds,shoot the dart dummo I, mean cuomo"

      It is amazingly frustrating trying to determine exactly what the law really intends. The NYSAFEACT.com website attempts to answer questions but creates other uncertainties not addressed within the website. I've spoken to a number of gun shop owners who weren't able to get the same answer twice from state officials when requesting clarification of certain items in the law. It's going to be an interesting couple of weeks.

      PS: The 7 round limit goes into effect on April 15, 2013. So, 10 rounds are "less dangerous" between now and April 14th, but "more dangerous" between April 15th and eternity?

      Glad I don't live in that crap eating state. I feel for those, who for one reason or another, have to.

The seven round magazines make this a law that does exactly what they said they weren't going to do, a gun grab!
      I'm also in Upstate NY. I have my 10/22 in a bullpup stock so it qualifies as an assault weapon too so they think I'm actually going to register it ? I'm waiting to see what happens with the lawsuits that have allready been filed. Wonder what Cuomo would think of the 10,000 rounds of .22 lr in my basement

      And just look at CA, NJ, CO proposed laws for this year...
      You got it in one (and those who say "it won't happen in my state", keep watching)

      There is, of course, an exception for celebrities, and for the extremely wealthy who donate money to the correct political candidates.

      The law's new definition of "assault weapon" now includes not only all black-colored rifles, pistols, and shotguns, but also all wooden and plastic canes that are capable of delivering more than one blow without breaking.
      A "large-capacity magazine" is defined as any paper-based publication which contains more than ten conservative opinions.

      There's more, of course, but you can easily see from these examples that New York State will now be a much safer place to live.
      Governor Cuomo warns New Yorkers, however, that if any of them ever cross the line into Vermont, their rights of New York State citizenship will be immediately terminated and automatically revoked.
      Hahahaha!! Good one, Steve!!
