Because No One Really Needs Ten Rounds in Their Gun

The seven round limit that, in their infinite wisdom, New York lawmakers pulled out of their rectal cavities when drafting the nation’s most egregiously restrictive anti-self defense laws was, of course, purely arbitrary. Just as the magical ten round limit was before it. If Governor Cuomo and his pals had their druthers, it would likely have been zero. There is no logic or scientific data to support anyone’s idea of what constitutes a “reasonable” maximum number of rounds the typical person might need in a defensive gun use situation. And even if there were, what if your particular situation isn’t “typical”? But the people of New York, Connecticut, Colorado and other states have to live with disarmament laws crafted by legislators, most of whom wouldn’t know a magazine from a martini. Good luck with that.
