No, there still has not been a clarification as to 8 round revolvers. The law does not say semi automatic. It merely defines the rule thus: 23. "Large capacity ammunition feeding device" means a magazine, belt,
drum, feed strip, or similar device, [manufactured after September thir-
teenth, nineteen hundred ninety-four,] that (A) has a capacity of, or
that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten
rounds of ammunition, OR (B) CONTAINS MORE THAN SEVEN ROUNDS OF AMMUNI
TION, OR (C) IS OBTAINED AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE CHAPTER OF THE
LAWS OF TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN WHICH AMENDED THIS SUBDIVISION AND HAS A
CAPACITY OF, OR THAT CAN BE READILY RESTORED OR CONVERTED TO ACCEPT,
MORE THAN SEVEN ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION; provided, however, that such term
does not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and
capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition OR A
FEEDING DEVICE THAT IS A CURIO OR RELIC.
There is no mention of type of weapon.
I did not mention this casually, again, neither my state senator nor assemblyman had an answer to this question.
It's not easy to comment on a law until you have read it yourself.
Additionally, there needs to be a clarification on whether 7 in the mag and one in the pipe is legal. This issue, again, was actually raised by my assembly person, and no one could or would give him an answer.
