The New York State Sheriffs' Association and five individual sheriffs are asking U.S. District Judge William Skretny to add their position to the record. They support gun rights advocates seeking to block enforcement of new bullet limits for magazines and the tighter definition of assault weapons.

The sheriffs agree with the New York affiliate of the National Rifle Association that the law, passed after the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, is unconstitutional because it will prevent citizens from keeping commonly used firearms for home defense.

This seems like an interesting development to me...

Well it's the 13th. Hopefully there is some actual news today instead of procedural delays.

We New York state dudes have been anxiously awaiting this day. The lawyers (Tresmond, etal) are confident. I hope they are correct.

From what I've read on NYFirearms website, it sounds like this is just a procedural hearing. Someone in the know over there said there likely wouldn't be any big news today.

Staying tuned, just in case.

I, too, am impressed with interviews I've heard and read with Jim (and Max) Tresmond. I'm sure the anti-SAFE act people are on solid constitutional ground (Heller, etc).

I just hope that the judge sees it that way. Here in NY, you never know.

From the article, I'll paraphrase and a quote - basically someone snuck a provision into the bill in the Senate exempting retired LEO's from the 10 round limit.

"St. Sen. Martin Golden, also a Republican and a retired cop, said the measure gives comfort to those who might encounter people they once arrested out on the street."

I guess those are the only folks deserving comfort. Regular John Q. Citizen gets to fight it out with the bad guys on a shorter playing field.

Wow, screwed once again by our "allies". Granting an exemption to JUST retired LEOs but ignoring the rest of us. In one fell swoop we have lost our best bargaining chip and reinforced the LEO, including retired LEO, privileged class distinction.

That's alright, those who are part of the govt and responsible for enforcing govt will would never abuse their power despite all recent evidence to the contrary.

that article is very poorly written. there is no blanket exemption of retired law enforcement from the ten round magazine/7 rounds loaded restriction. if you qualified with a firearm that takes a larger than ten round magazine in your last year on the job and if you requalify with it every 3 years thereafter than you can carry that gun. you cannot carry another gun with more than a ten round magazine. if you are like me and a great number of retired law enforcement and did not qualify with a firearm that takes a greater than ten round magazine in your last year on the job then this bill does nothing for you. it does nothing for out of state retired or active law enforcement.

I continue to advocate for and contribute to the legal fight to have the SAFE Act overturned.

Heyjoe. .. Thanks for clarifying. Problem still remains, they keep trying to make segments of population happy so we loose our overall momentum to defeat entire law.

Registration Of So Called Assault Weapons

LEO's are allowed to carry high cap mags in their service weapons, does that also include handguns that are not part of their authorized service handguns?

Second question: If their private collection of so called assault rifles are not part of their required inventory for their job, are they required to register them like everyone else?

Has anyone heard any news, progress, or the next date for something to possibly happen?

Thanks.

This is very frustrating...

We are getting ever closer to NY State D-Day where all this other crap kicks in and it seems we have not had any momentum. Are there any positive or negative updates anyone from the legal realm can provide us????

One case (NYS) is scheduled for Jan 16th, tentatively.

The federal case is slated for arguments (IIRC) in October.

I wouldn't worry too much. The legal system is best characterized as "Glacial".

Bump. It has been months, and with the confiscation orders being issued, it would be nice to know what is happening in the Tresmond cases. Any news?

The last that I heard was that there would be oral arguments on the injunction on Jan.16th.

Max hasn't communicated with anyone on this board for quite sometime. He has his reasons, I suspect, and I know he is awfully busy (working with his dad on several semi-related cases) so I won't bother him.

The "confiscation orders" are essentially a myth. They are in NY City, not the rest of the state, have been issued under similar circumstances for years and have nothing to do with the SAFE Act.
