    Federal Court Strikes Down Magazine Limit

    Some good news, partially.


    "Federal Court Strikes Down Magazine Limit but Upholds NY Assault Weapons Ban

    Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- New York’s rights infringing ban on assault weapons is constitutional, but it cannot limit a gun magazine to seven bullets, a federal court judge ruled today.

    The ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny in Buffalo found that New York’s gun-control law, called the SAFE Act, that restricts assault weapons doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights. But the judge tossed a provision that limits a magazine that can hold 10 rounds to just seven bullets.

    “This Court finds that the challenged provisions of the SAFE Act — including the act’s definition and regulation of assault weapons and its ban on large-capacity magazines — further the state’s important interest in public safety, and do not impermissibly infringe on Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights,” Skretny ruled.

    “But, the seven-round limit fails the relevant test because the purported link between the ban and the state’s interest is tenuous, strained, and unsupported in the record.”

    Clearly, he thinks that limiting us to bb guns would be acceptable.

    Oh...the laws don't "impermissibly" infringe! Well, that's OK then. The infringement is one of the "permissible" variety.

    Be advised that it is only in one of the four federal districts. 7 rounds is still technically the rule in 3/4 of the state.
