Ever since the unconstitutional SAFE Act was passed in NY there has been a massive movement to see this law overturned. One of the most controversial parts of the law is the limitation of gun magazines to only 7 rounds.
A federal judge in Buffalo NY has now rejected the 7 round limitation but has upheld parts of the law which banned the in-state sales of “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines.
Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny seemed to understand the arbitrary nature of limiting a magazine round to 7 rounds but still did not fully comprehend the hypocrisy of banning other “high capacity” magazines either or rifles deemed as “assault rifles” just because they look a certain way.
According to WIVB.com,
In his ruling, Skretny found the seven-round limit “tenuous, strained and unsupported” but found that the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines “do not impermissibly infringe on Plaintiff’s Second Amendment rights” and furthers the state’s “important interest in public safety.”
The judge upheld the laws redefinition of an “assault weapon” which includes any semi-automatic center-fire rifle that has any one military-style feature, like a pistol grip or adjustable stock for instance.
As long as judges like this continue to legislate from the bench those who understand how unconstitutional this law is will make sure it ends up before the Supreme Court. You can count on that.
There are currently numerous law suits out against the SAFE act and sheriffs and gun owners alike in NY are speaking out against the law. The judge in this case apparently did some research on mass shootings to determine that “assault weapons” should be banned even while avoiding the fact that only 4% of all gun crimes are committed with these guns.
