Oh, by the way: New York forgot to exempt cops from its new ban on high-capacity magazines

posted at 8:01 pm on January 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Mark Levin, here’s what happens when Doing Something is more important than knowing what you’re doing. You’ve got a governor here who’s facing reelection in 2014 and may well end up being the national frontrunner for his party’s nomination in 2016 if Hillary doesn’t run. He’s feeling political pressure not just from above, in the form of a president who’s vowed to drum up Do Something fever among Democrats nationally, but from below in the form of a rich, high-profile nanny-state mayor for whom this is a pet issue. One of his top national rivals is also scrambling to put together a gun-control package to impress progressives, and the bigmouth from the state next door was inevitably going to start sucking up the local media oxygen by chiming in on this subject too. Action had to be taken, and it had to be taken quickly to impress a left that’s grown suspicious of him lately. Result: For the moment, it’s illegal for cops to carry magazines with more than seven bullets in New York State. You wanted Cuomo and the state legislature to Do Something, New York. They did it.

They did a lot, actually:

Mental health experts say a new tougher New York state gun control law might interfere with treatment of potentially dangerous people and even discourage them from seeking help.

The law would require therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to tell government authorities if they believe a patient is likely to harm himself or others. That could lead to revoking the patient’s gun permit and seizing any guns…

“The people who arguably most need to be in treatment and most need to feel free to talk about these disturbing impulses, may be the ones we make least likely to do so,” said the director of law, ethics and psychiatry at Columbia. “They will either simply not come, or not report the thoughts that they have.”

“If people with suicidal or homicidal impulses avoid treatment for fear of being reported in this way, they may be more likely to act on those impulses,” he said.

That’s a solid result for gun control. The police are momentarily in limbo legally and the threat to the public might actually increase as would-be spree killers decide it’s now too risky to seek therapy. Get Cuomo’s office a video camera and a group of kids reading letters about gun control, stat.

Update: High-capacity magazines may not be the only loophole that’s snared New York police. According to one lawmaker, cops might be technically be banned from carrying on school grounds too.

Are Cuomo’s and Bloomberg’s bodyguards under the same prohibitions?

That would be special. Very special.

What’s the problem? The Democrats of New York have proven the fact that nobody needs more than 7 rounds to defend yourself, so why would a cop need more than that? (Unless he’s going to go crazy and try to murder a bunch of people or something.)

Why?

No problem. The cops can just have David Gregory carry their magazines for them. He’s exempt from any laws.

You’ve got to love a legislature that moves so quickly to pass such a retarded, un-American bill and a governor who rushes to sign the POS. What a trustworthy bunch … and it wasn’t even an extensive piece of legislation. Maybe they should get Barky’s kid props to work on the bill next time?

Othniel on January 17, 2013 at 8:19 PM

That’s true. Since no one else in New York is going to have anything more than a 7 round mag, the cops don’t have to worry about having more, either. Less civilians hit when the cops pull their guns, anyway – as mentioned by KOOLAID above.

Weight of Glory on January 17, 2013 at 8:24 PM

If a cop needs more bullets in a mag, then why wouldn’t a homeowner defending his life and property need the same amount of bullets? Are there different criminals that cops run into than the ones who try to rob, mug, and burglarize people and houses? Do the criminals with the big mags restrict themselves to interacting with cops?

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on January 17, 2013 at 8:24 PM

In some places the only reason cops don’t pack machineguns is the huge risk of civilian casualties if a bullet ricochets all over the concrete or flies into a house. The line of thought is that a cop should have to decide manually for every shot fired, which has a lot of merit in a city.

With the increase of drugs that turn people into rage zombies, I wouldn’t at all mind an increase in the average LEO’s handgun power, but if they run into something they can’t deal with, we have SWAT teams.

Since the SCOTUS decided that the police have no responsibility to provide protection for anyone that same argument goes for law-abiding civilians who have only themselves to rely on for protection (as per our esteemed SCOTUS, which was a correct deicision, BTW, in view of our 2nd amendment rights).

Think back long ago to Super-Dooper storm Sandy and how all the civilians were left to defend themselves with no services provided by the city or state, at all. It should have been clear at that point that civilians are responsible for their own protection. And this happened in the very New York that has rushed to disarm those civilians.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on January 17, 2013 at 8:35 PM

What is the effectivity date for this NY law? Are the cops now prohibited from having more than 7 round magazines?

Please can the left at least get the terminology right? It’s seven rounds or cartridges. Bullets are what go on the end of cartridges.

The cops are minutes away when you need them. That’s not counting the minutes it takes you to convince the 911 operator that you are not a kook and really really need the SWAT team.

If I were a NY law abiding private citizen, I would demand that the newly established fire power equality be maintained in future legislation.

WestTexasBirdDog on January 17, 2013 at 8:39 PM

I’d like to frame your comment in a more meaningful way.

Citizens’ Constitutional rights are violated when the state starts differentiating the size of magazines based on purported need. What business is it of the state how many rounds a lawful citizen carries?

This gets back to the whole argument from the left that they can limit the size of magazines based on how many shots it should take to bring down a deer.

I prefer LEO’s properly armed.

I prefer them to be disarmed, but then I’m in favor of freedom and not so much in favor of enabling tyranny.

What’s the problem? The Democrats of New York have proven the fact that nobody needs more than 7 rounds to defend yourself, so why would a cop need more than that? (Unless he’s going to go crazy and try to murder a bunch of people or something.)

Evidently hitting their target is foreign to them – so they need large capacity magazines.

Hill60 on January 17, 2013 at 9:01 PM

So you think police cnfrontations are always one on one?

katy the mean old lady on January 17, 2013 at 9:01 PM

Do you think home invasions are?

How many really bad evil people have you put in prison? How many hardcore murderous barbaric gang-bangers have you put in prison?

How many rounds does the average New York cop shoot in the line of duty over the lifetime of his job? Not in one encounter, but over the entire career.

I see the pro mass shooting of kids as long as they ain’t my kids fringe conservative party is in full force tonight.
Sane Americans can continue to sleep well at night knowing these insane people will never have the keys to political positions that affect majority of Americans.

If we scare you that much, come get us. I’ll be the first to meet you on the battlefield.

Lying POS. Sing HAL!

Cops are professionals. If they are gonna miss their target with 7 bullets, what hope do the rest of us have?

Buddahpundit on January 17, 2013 at 8:45 PM

Cops are not exactly renowned for being good shots. Quite the opposite.

You are dumber than a bag of hammers.

How many people want to see you and your family dead because of your career and you doing your job — and have despicable lawyers along with reams of paperwork with your identifying information on all of it?

Honestly. Is bare bones basic common sense a rarity around here — or what.

Slapdick.

So, according to your logic, veterans should be exempt as well. Oh wait, they have been targeted as potential domestic terrorists by this administration. The left is to blame for the reams of paperwork, the left is who posted all those prison guards home addresses in their haste to make targets of law abiding gun owners. The left is who makes it impossible for a parent to have a deranged child committed. Why don’t you go lecture them?
