New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico have agreed, in a stipulated order, to not enforce a section of the state’s controversial SAFE (Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement) Act while an appeal is underway in one of the legal challenges to that statute, amounting to a small but important victory for the Second Amendment Foundation in a challenge to the constitutionality of a provision in the law.
At issue is the arbitrary seven-round limit on magazine capacity that was included in the SAFE Act under Section 265.37 of that law. At trial in the case of New York State Rifle and Pistol Assn, Inc. v. Cuomo, Judge William M. Skretny ruled that the section dealing with the magazine limit is unconstitutional. He upheld other provisions in the Act.
FK – Just imagine, if we had the militia force we should have constructed years ago all those legal fees could be given to charity, or back to the taxpayers they were stolen from, saved by a few short pieces of rope. No real American would want to be paid for such effort beyond the basic cost to go there if they needed it because the internal satisfaction of involvement in such an endeavor would be enough.
