That Didn't Take Long

NY governor Andrew Cuomo's new, much-ballyhooed gun-control legislation has plenty of flaws. Here's the most embarrassing one.
A troubling oversight has been found within New York State's sweeping new gun laws.

The ban on having high-capacity magazines, as it's written, would also include law enforcement officers.

Magazines with more than seven rounds will be illegal under the new law when that part takes effect in March.

As the statute is currently written, it does not exempt law enforcement officers.

Nearly every law enforcement agency in the state carries hand guns that have a 15 round capacity.

State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban. In his words, "You can't give more ammo to the criminals."
But it's evidently okay to give the criminals firearms that are denied to law-abiding citizens.
