    My question is why does it go to 10? should it go to any number? when i read it, I assumed 10, but why is it 10? Sorry for my confusion, these laws are well beyond the ability of normal people to understand
  3. The AR-15
    Sorry if this is a repost, I searched a little and didn't see this. I'm planning on having some AR MR2's around for possible future use and have a question for anyone who knows. If a magazine is non-detachable (unless the gun is disassembled), is there a limit on the number of rounds it can...

    Because a criminal can simply load 3 more rounds in a second... But even though a criminal can add banned evil features in a matter of minutes...or use a 30 round mag...those banned features are still OK to be banned... LOGIC does it work?

    Just heard some disturbing news that the recent court ruling is only good to go in buffalo district not all of NY. Does this mean there's no change in law for onondaga count? Any info be appreciated

    The judge struck the seven round limit because NY still allows ten round mags. If the unSAFE act limited us to 2 rounds but allowed 5 round mags...the court would have simply ruled that criminals would just fully load their 5 round mags. Therefore not allowed. So the judge isn't saying 7...

    I wonder if in light of todays ruling (assuming the 7 round mag loading limit isn't later upheld) if it's grounds for challenging the 5 round limit)? It may seem minor, but NYC residents would at least no longer needed modified 5 round magazines. Just a thought.

    I was looking at a Walther P99AS from out of state and the FFL dealer there said they can not ship to NY because it has 12 round mags. A FFL dealer here said I can buy one from out of state but can not have the mags until they get blocked to 10 rounds which would be fine with me. So, which one...
