“There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn’t exist. So you really have no practical option,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo admitted yesterday at a news conference, explaining why his tough ban on ammunition magazines over seven rounds should be repealed.
The bill must be repealed if New Yorkers ever want to purchase an ammunition magazine for their firearm.
Cuomo explained yesterday, however, that the new law will only allow citizens to put seven bullets in the magazines, unless they are at a shooting range.
Gun control activists hailed New York lawmakers in January for quickly passing the first tough gun restrictions since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
“Common sense can win. You can overpower the extremists with intelligence and with reason and with common sense,” boasted Cuomo to reporters in January before he signed the bill.
