From Long Island Newsday:
ALBANY — As the legislature began the process of enacting a new state budget Sunday, its top Republican said lawmakers effectively will cancel a ban on the sale of gun and rifle magazines larger than seven rounds that was set to take effect April 15.
In doing so, Senate co-leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) confirmed a plan lawmakers outlined last week.
The budget will include an “indefinite postponement of the issue concerning the clips,” Skelos said just before the Senate began passing the first of several bills to enact a $136 billion state budget.
See, the problem is that 7-round magazines are uncommon in modern firearms.
Well, with one arguably non-modern exception.
Of course, none of that stopped Cuomo:
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo previously signaled he would back down on the seven-round limit because manufacturers don’t make such magazines. The governor called it an “inconsistency” and insisted he was not rolling back the gun law.
Tyrants rarely do roll back their tyranny.
