OK, confession, I didn't read the new law. I'm depending on those forum members who have made that effort (and a big thank you to them).
Does it contain any exemptions for police? For the Governor's bodyguards? Will the police be restricted to 7 shots, on or off duty?
The people in NY State should demand that the law apply to all. To everyone. Why would the Governor be so special as to have bodyguards armed with more than 7 shots (well, 8 with one in the chamber) if "there is no need for so many loaded rounds"?
