signed it,if i didnt have a large family here , i would leave this insane place. i went to a gun club meeting last night and everyone was livid. "what could we do?" was thrown all over the place,meanwhile a few months ago we had a vote to make being a member of the NRA a requirement for the club. and would you freaking beleive that it was voted DOWN !!!!!!. i was fuming. last night i wanted to bring it up again but had no balls. i think that these people are just cheap.thats the sad thing. we need all the help we could get in new york where hunting and shooting areas are shrinking.

Possession of a non-grandfathered 10 round mag is illegal. All existing 10 round mags are fine but cannot be loaded with more than 7 rounds.
Someone please explain to me...

How in the world do they know when a magazine was manufactured???

They're NOT serialized!

It was different when the AWB went into effect in '94... it prohibited manufacture nationally....

Or, do you NY'ers need special mags stamped with the manufacturer and date of manufacture?

I would have voted against it as well. The NRA sent me an invitation to join, and I passed at the time. They required a signature on a position statement that wasn't my position, so I wouldn't put my name on it. Secondly, I find it vaguely hypocritical to regulate membership in an organization that promotes firearms without regulation to participate in the activity the organization promotes. Highly prefers, I'd have voted for. Absolutely requires, I'd have voted no.

Nope, I just disagree with our side requiring something to exercise their 2nd amendment either.

No Nick. If you have already signed, do not sign again.

Depending upon how the petition is validated, you could wind up having both your signatures stricken.

Any idea what Senator Marchione plans to do with this petition? Yes, I signed it and urged everyone I know to sign it. Now what? Looks like the whole mess is just fading away. Ball and Katz and Marchione and the other legislators who opposed the bill seem to have become very quiet.
