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.
