Legislation to limit magazine size advances in New York

Let's hope that there is some accurate information that gets into this debate at some point. From the New York Daily News:

New York lawmakers called for an outright ban Wednesday on extended gun magazines that hold as many as 30 bullets.

"Obviously, when you look at the magnitude of these magazines, you're not talking about for hunting purposes," said City Councilman Robert Jackson (D-Manhattan), who Wednesday offered a Council resolution backing a federal ban.

The proposal came just hours after the Daily News and state Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) exposed a glaring loophole in a 1994 state law that was supposed to abolish the large clips. . . .

Note as a bonus the newspaper is running a poll on "Should private ownership of guns be banned completely?" Those interested can vote.

Existing mags were grandfathered. The process that the anti's have in mind is always to tighten restrictions, by using every restriction as a stepping stone to more severe restrictions.
A ban on the sale or possession of new mags has become a push for a ban on the sale of old mags, which will become a push for a ban on possession of old mags.
They really do mean to pry guns from people's cold dead hands, and they have no qualms about that, since they won't be the ones on the scene doing the actual prying. They'll be the ones going out to dinner afterwards to celebrate.
As for the despicable Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn), he's doing a great job of keeping the heat off of his criminal constituents in Crooklyn. I'm sure they appreciate his efforts to make their criminal careers easier.
There is also the matter of the New York Daily News working hand in glove to further a government official’s agenda by helping him secretly videotape perfectly legal activity to make it appear illegal.
The thuggery that comes out of New York City, from Bloomberg down, is relentlessly disgusting.
