NY Gun Ban Bill Forgets to Exempt Police

“It appears someone forgot to exempt police officers from the ban of ammunition clips with more than 7 bullets in New York State’s new gun control law, ” wabc.com reports. “It’s a big oversight that apparently happened in the haste by the Cuomo Administration to get a tough package of gun-control measures signed into law.” Haste as in Cuomo somehow waiving the Constitutional requirement for a three-day waiting period between a bill’s introduction and a vote in the General Assembly . . .

The NYPD, the State Police and virtually every law enforcement agency in the state carry 9-milli-meter guns, which have a 15-round capacity. Unless an exemption is added by the time the law takes effect in March, police would technically be in violation of the new gun measure.

Technically as in actually. OK, ready?

State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he’s going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, “You can’t give more ammo to the criminals.”

Or citizens. “Technically.”
