Andrew Cuomo will now quietly kill the seven bullet limit.

I’d like to think that the NY GOP got something out of their act of corporeal mercy… but probably not.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s seven-round limit on magazines sold in New York will be suspended “indefinitely” by a measure in his $136.5 billion budget set to be passed this week, Dean Skelos, a Senate majority leader said.

For those who don’t remember: the ban was called into question when it came out that nobody actually made seven round magazines. The NY state government REALLY didn’t want that brought up in front of a court, given that the courts tend to frown on legislatures trying to get overly cute with the federal Constitution; and it’s pretty clear at this point that the Supreme Court feels inclined to spank gun-grabbers.  Particularly the ones that insist on wasting the Supreme Court’s valuable time. So… let the legislation be ‘suspended’ for a while; which probably translates to ‘never.’  Maybe they’ll revisit it when the shouting dies down.  And maybe they won’t, either.

PS: The New York state government is generally populated by blithering idiots who could not find their own rear ends in a dark room at night with a flashlight and a sex worker to help.  I just wish to note this for the (somewhat bowdlerized) record.
