That seems to be the promise. . A total ban on “assault rifles”, which is a meaningless term but presumably means anything that looks scary, and all guns look scary to anti-gun nuts, and the outlawing of any gun, handgun or otherwise, with a magazine capacity larger than seven cartridges. Modern semi-automatic pistols, even .22s like my own Ruger Mark III, have 10-round magazines. Revolvers hold just six, so apparently Jesse James can come back from the dead and terrorize the residents of Deadwood with impunity. That’s assuming murder will be legalized, of course, but the New York legislators don’t seem concerned with those kind of laws.
“The legislation will require owners of guns that become illegal under the stricter statute to register their weapons and that the new laws will prohibit transfer of those weapons.”
Confiscation. And state Republicans aren’t even attempting to fight back but instead are squabbling about pork money for schools. Time for a new party.
