New York to criminalize possession of prior legally owned grandfathered “hi-cap” mags

Democrats gonna Democrat. They were grandfathered in prior. No more. Your grandfathered mags will now result in criminal charges if this passes (at it probably will). What this means is that many New Yorkers are about to become criminals, and the state will treat them as one and point their government guns at them. Never compromise with these terrorists (anti-gun politicians). They’ll always be back for more.



BILL NUMBER: S9229 SPONSOR: HOYLMAN TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to the definition of large capacity ammunition feeding device for purposes of the offense of crimi- nal possession of a weapon in the third degree; and to repeal section 265.36 of the penal law relating to unlawful possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 removes the exemption for large capacity ammunition feeding devices manufactured before 1994 or possessed before 2013 from Penal Law § 265.02, which prohibits the possession of such devices Section 2 repeals Penal Law § 265.36, which prohibits the possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices manufactured prior to 1994. Section 3 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: In New York, possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices is illegal, but the prohibition is split between two provisions of the Penal Law. Penal Law § 265.02 prohibits devices manufactured after 1994, while Penal Law § 265.36 prohibits devices manufactured before 1994. Although this creates a total ban on paper, in practice it requires prosecutors to unnecessarily prove the date of manufacture of the device, which is often impossible. This has led prosecutors to drop cases against alleged offenders of this law. This bill will simplify the law by consolidating the provisions banning large capacity ammunition feeding devices into a single section of the Penal Law. FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

Everytown‘s politician is getting jumpy and wants to arrest or kill gun owners that don’t surrender their mags.




Yep!

Not to drop one in the punchbowl here, but how is this different in principle from criminalizing possession of prior legally owned bump stocks?

Thank you, Donald, for setting the one precedent that should never have been set.

Don led the way to which Biden was able to go after braces and receivers. This example is more along the lines of proof that it’ll always lead to criminalization of legally owned stuff once these ghouls get a “common sense” law passed
