    The bill of rights is an outline from "We, the people" to those who we GIVE power to. They are sovereign and are beyond the reach or legality of any government intrusion.
    The US Government has no authority to over reach and arbitrarily alter an amendment with its restrictions.
    If you can't understand the simple fact that the government has ZERO authority to impose limitations on our god given freedoms then I can't help you.

    Tell that to the officer arresting you. I'm sure he'll let you go right away because you in your infinite wisdom declare a law unconstitutional

    On a philosophical level, I don't disagree with you at all. But that's not how it works in the real world. You can't declare a law unconstitutional and the officer arresting you can't just let you go because he agrees with your assessment.

    So in your opinion, at what point does round count become unconstitutional? One round? No wait, that's still a round, so must be ok. Zero? You still have a firearm.
    You can have good intentions and not be right.

    From BC1: "This law was enacted January 15, 2013 and took affect April 15, 2013. He should have known. Ignorance of the law is not a defense."

    THIS P.O.S. LAW WAS PASSED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, WITHOUT MEETING NY'S "CONSTITUTIONAL" REQUIREMENTS BECAUSE IT WAS AN "EMERGENCY!!!!
    Yes, passage of this "law" (I use that term lightly) took place without time for exposure to the public, time for our elected 'representatives' (I also use that term lightly) to actually read the legislation, digest it, and make a reasoned (not emotional) decision on how to vote.

    First.... lets look at the "emergency"... this was passed without Constitutional requirements because it was an emergency....SO WHY DID IT BECOME EFFECTIVE 90 DAYS LATER??? If it was an emergency, why was it not effective immediately???

    Next... if our legislators actually looked at the "law" and thought reasonably about its place and where it stands in the 'grand scheme', they would have realized how ridiculous their reasoning really is... in New York State, having that 8th round in the magazine is now a MORE SERIOUS offense than CHILD MOLESTATION!!!

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Any and all of the legislators, if asked during the 3 day Constitutional review period, would have at least had to answer that question.... is an 8th round actually worse than Child Molestation?


    While I believe that this "law" is a horrible attempt to limit our Constitutional Rights, I also agree with BC1...it's the current law...and a fact of life for those of us in NY.
    As a result, we have to follow that law until it's overturned or amended. So, the man who was pulled over for the light bulb should have been bright enough (pun intended) to know that he was in violation of the "concealed" part of NY law... In violation of the limits on number of rounds... In violation of vehicle and traffic law(driving with a suspended license... and finally, he should have been "bright enough" to know that just because he doesn't like the law, he still has to follow it until it's revoked or amended.

    In a state (and county) where they are LOOKING FOR ANY REASON to revoke your permit, why give them "just another reason", even in protest, to take it!

    For me, I am following the law, keeping 7 in the mag although it holds more, but now carry multiple 7 round mags.

    Finally, every law has unintended consequences which the lawmakers never consider. So, I am also considering purchase of and have been researching larger caliber pistols with 7+1 capacity....
    The "unintended consequences" of this legislation will be that while they may have succeeded in limiting my capacity per mag, they will actually have caused me to become more lethal if the need ever arises.

    While we may not agree on how to handle unconstitutional laws, I am glad we are having the discussion. I just wish there wasn't any need for it.

    I know...I know...ya can't just pick up and move. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You pro 2nd folks that continue to stay in New York and continue to pay those outrageous taxes and continue to be contributing members of the society up there are in for a big surprise...it is only going to get worse...that will be your different result. This is true for all you new englanders and everyone north of Mason Dixon. You will stay in place and continue to feed those on the government dole. You will continue to pay for your sanctuary cities. You will continue to pay to protect the blue chip society folks. This will be your future and your children's legacy. Your children's inheritance will be the oppressive governments you will support unil they are grown up...then they will follow your lead. Of course you can always get the hell out of those rat holes and allow the blue chip to fuel the sanctuary city until they go broke or until thy become the victims of their own ignorance. But hey, as long as they got you to do it they got nothing to worry about. HOw long will cuomo or bloomingfart last if you pull your money out of that rat hole. You ain't gunna do it at the ballot box. The numbers at the government trough are far greater than those shoveling the slop into the trough...aren't you getting tired of the shoveling. Hey why not just become mother pig at the trough. If all of you guys do that it will have the same effect as if you simply move away.

    Just trying to remind you that the cops are definitely not your friends. They, like you, will choose self preservation over standing up for their rights.

    Like at a zoo, admire them, but just do so from a safe distance.

    The bearing of arms is not infringed. Carry another mag, that's all.
    .
    Every right enumerated in the constitution is infringed regularly. You especially have no first amendment rights to free speech. Our fourth amendment rights are violated regularly. And in some states a convicted felon has lost the right to vote. In fact the original constitution, in it's strict construction form, was written by white males to benefit white males. Women couldn't vote. People could be enslaved.
