No announcement yet.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    I'd be careful of thee 10 round Mag with only 7 in it. I'm going to see if I can get a couple 5 round mags for my AR to take to the range, and keep anything larger out of sight.

    Josh G - I hope other law enforcement agencies follow suit. Under the new laws just about every gun owner in the state was made a criminal at the stroke of a pen. That's ridiculous!

    99 One more question. The way I read it AR-15s are not banned. They just have to be registered. In the future they will be for sale albeit at inflated prices. If purchased in the 50 Beowulf caliber it already comes in a stock 7 round magazine.

    The way the new law reads, it bans the possession of magazines that hold more than ten rounds, and it creates a new ban on magazines that hold more than seven rounds.
    Ten-round magazines that are currently owned will be grandfathered in, but may contain only seven rounds of ammo.
    It sounds silly to place a limit on how many rounds may be placed in a magazine that has a capacity to hold more, but that is preferable to a ban that would force the owners to dispose of them altogether.

    Only one I know of off the top of my head is the S&W body guard. It only has a 6 round mag. I cannot believe they would limit the law enforcement officers as well. I think a lot of officers would quit their jobs over that. I am sure they will exempt them in the long run. I sure hope this does not spread all over the place and if it does I wounder how many states will pull a Colorado and put it in the state constitution that it is legal?

    I'm sure the gun gadget industry will jump right on board with all kinds of kits to change old magazines. And, of course, look for them to also manufacturer and happily sell you new magazines that meet the requirement.

    The Glock 36, .45 has a max. of 7 rounds total. But if I know the NY gun control people, they probably have special restrictions on Glocks anyway.

    WAM, I seriously doubt brains were much of a factor in any of this anti-gun fertilizer.

    All you need to do is put a rivet or pin in the lower end of a magazine in the proper location to prevent more than 7 rounds. No brainer! Get a wheelgun!
