Here is something to watch about the gun control debate that I didn't think of and I bet many of you too! In New York Gov. Cuomo

    Carl - Right you are. Restrictions on firearms and magazines are covered under different sections of the law. The AR-15 just has to be registered. The seven-round .50 Beowulf magazine is okay.
    But a N.Y. resident who owns a Colt 1911 would have a problem if he has acquired aftermarket eight-round magazines. He can keep them, but he can only load them with seven rounds. The law is silent on the question of a round in the chamber.

      You are able to keep the 10-round magazine for 1 year, by which time you can sell it out of state, dispose of it or 'permanently' modifiy it to hold only 7 rounds. Just to load it with 7 rounds is not acceptable. What 'permanently' means is a question- is a spacer okay? This needs some legal challenges. I have a Ruger Mark III with a 10 round magazine- will Ruger make a new 7 round magazine?

        Without quoting the exact words of the law, which are very lengthy and may be found at Sect. 38 of the statute (S.2230-2013), the banned magazines are described as:
        (A) magazines that have a capacity to hold more than ten rounds,
        (B) magazines that actually contain more than seven rounds,
        (C) newly acquired magazines that have a capacity of more than seven rounds.

          Will Ruger make a new 7-round magazine?
          Absolutely yes, but hold onto that 10-round magazine, as it can still be used without modification, so long as it is loaded with no more than seven rounds.

            My Ruger LCP .380 has a 6-rd. mag and I top off for a total of 7 (6+1). However, my own personal take on this lunacy is that I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6, so will carry what I deem appropriate for the situation. Self-preservation is the primal law of nature, and I will do whatever it takes to obey Nature's law, despite the idiocy of man's law. But, that is my business, and I make no recommendations to others on the matter. My preferred tactic is to avoid hostile environments rather than need to react to the threat, Therefore, I will not be visiting NYC anytime soon.
