    That is crap. :mad:

    Very sorry thing but expected from the corrupt state of NY. Yep, it makes for a superior class of citizen.

    They can thank the Albany LEO Union for that one. They raised holy hell when they realized they were gonna become crooks if they didnt dump their Private owned weapons.

    Guess who didnt get the exemption? People like me who served Honorably in the NY Army National Guard for 17 of my 21 years of service! It was AOK for me to lead an Anti Armor Platoon with 8 heavy weapons systems, and 16 Light Machine guns but I cant have a mag that holds more than 10 bullets or an AR?

    The NYARNG cant unionize, we have no voice as a group and never will. Andy listens to his Unions closely and they deliver the votes and support he needs. Anything he can do to water down the outrage over his recent conquests only goes to empower him further. This just became a police state, they now have rights we cannot have ourselves!

    Looks like more fodder for the court cases that are bound to be coming.

    And folks here wonder why regular people dont always feel warm and fuzzy about special folk status? The further they go to prove were not all equal, the larger the wedge will become between us with special classes being the hammer that drives it. NY LEOs wont be standing beside us in support of our 2A rights, they already had theirs re-affirmed. Instead they are now squarely in the Governors corner and will only be acting as his eyes and ears against us FOOG.

    Rich folks hire armed guards, our Republicrats are endowed with them already, LEO's now have the right to SD off duty or after they retire with their choice of weapon yet the rest of us are only armed with three numbers, 911 + a prayer! This was a missed opportunity for us all to stand as one but the Unionizers as usual really only care about their Dues paying Membership, shocking isnt it?

    Glad for them, sad for us; in the end, it wont do any favors for anyone as a whole, it will only go to divide us further. Just think what a day at the range looks like in NY, LEOS with choices on one side, citizens with few on the other...

    I just sent this to Andy, he's pissed me off terminally!

    Sir, you have yet again created a special class of people in our state, Now LEO's are that class because they have rights that the rest of your citizens do not by exempting them from your Safe Act.

    I Served my nation and my state for 21 years and retired from the NYARNG. I carried a machine gun for your Dad and two other Governors but you wont allow me my legal right to own anything that holds more than 10 rounds?

    Your special provision for LEOS will only divide your state further, I didnt think that was possible.

    You have done more damage to the people of this state than anyone short of the 9/11 terrorists and you will be remembered for that.

    QFT.

    A slap in the face to anybody who ever got paid to carry a weapon for his/her country and a blatant example of union influence on liberals.

    I think it was obvious that was going to happen. Thankfully here there is no mag restrictions for police or civilians.

    I am disgusted, it's despicable, yet not surprising.

    ALL of us in LE MUST remember we are citizens FIRST AND FOREMOST, and act that way both ON and off duty.
    Apparently MANY LEO's at all levels of government today have forgotten this!:mad:

    As an LEO I would raise H*** if they reduced my round count. You don't handicap those who you hire to put their lives on the line to protect you.

    Luckily the federal AWB was shot down. I was stressing about it for a few months there.

    Can't say the same for a handful of states who passed their own version though.... Sorry NY :(

    They should not reduce anyones 'round count' (magazine size). Like I said, we are citizens first, cops second. ANY LAW PASSED SHOULD APPLY TO EVERYONE, that way those in government would not be exempt from this STUPIDITY!!!:mad:

    I physically can't agree with you more, because I agree with you 100%. This hypocrisy has gone on long enough.

    Because they were in such a hurry to push this through, the first exemption went to the LEO's because their service weapons were illegal until they added them! Idiots; Simple Dinks of the highest caliber! The exemption he just handed out to the LEO's is a direct affront on the citizens; I dont care who you are, rights are universal, not based on a badge or Military Service, thats just BS to divide and conquer us.

    I do not see the problem with the exemption. LEOs, ex-LEOs, Retired Military, CCW permit holders, normal law abiding citizens chould be exempted from this statute.

    It should apply equally to all convicted Felons and those who use a handgun in the commision of a crime. :)
