Police Officers ‘Violating New Gun Law’ In New York


nypd-unitA troubling oversight has been found within New York State’s sweeping new gun laws.

The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it’s written, would also include law enforcement officers.

Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March.

As the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers.

Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.

A spokesman for the governor’s office called Eyewitness News to say, “We are still working out some details of the law and the exemption will be included, currently no police officer is in violation.”

The Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President released a statement saying, “The PBA is actively working to enact changes to this law that will provide the appropriate exemptions from the law for active and retired law enforcement officers.”

  1. I know law enforcement in some other countries have smaller magazines and they also have the first bullet marked. That said, and given the rate of violent crime in USA, I support exemption for law enforcement at this time.

  2. The master hypocrites Cuomo’s and Bloomberg’s bodyguards should be limited to carrying no more than 7 rubber bullets – fired from a Nerf gun. If the individual citizens can’t defend themselves, neither should the government workers. Our only hope to force common sense into our oversized legal system, is not to have any exemptions – what’s good for the goose, good for the gander.
