Goofball New York legislators forget to exempt the police

Human Events-22 hours ago

It only took about a month for New York’s gun-grabbing, Andrew Cuomo, bans all magazines that hold more than seven bullets and pre-1994 high capacity Graf — a former New York City police officer and the ranking

Among other things, the weapons used by the police have 15-round magazines, so they exceed the new 7-round limit.  Retired cops will be obliged to surrender a mass of weapons that have been safely in their possession for a number of years.  Of course, criminals will feel no such obligation.  ”What they did was disarm the good guys and make sure the bad guys outgun them.”

Graf — a former New York City police officer and the ranking Republican member of the assembly’s powerful Codes Committee — says that the ban could even impede the efforts of officers to respond to a school shooting.

“The language is unclear, and to go further, a cop cannot go on school property with a gun,” Graf told The Daily Caller. “They weren’t exempted from that, either.”

“There was actually a story that was relayed to me the other day about a New York City police officer who went to a school the other day to pick up his kid, and the security guard told him that if he came to the school with his off-duty gun he would be arrested,” Graf continued.

The prohibition on carrying a gun into a school could even extend to on-duty police officers responding to an emergency such as a shooting.

“I guess they would have to sit there and take their gun belts off before they came in” to the school, Graf said.
