Someone posted this at another board. It is a list of crimes in New York that are considered less offensive than a person who owns magazine for a firearm that is greater than the state has deemed "enough."
Note that luring a child, 3rd degree rape, or criminally negligent homicide are somehow less offensive than the mere possession of a square metal or plastic tube with a spring in it.
