There plenty of weapons that only hold seven or less rounds in the magazine. The M1911 .45, for example. Modern handguns stagger their rounds in the clip this added to the smaller diameter of a 9mm leads to the high capacities. Why do you think they call it a Glock 17?

Putting too many bullets in a magazine is a nearly impossible law to enforce. What cop or ranger is going to make a person pull their clip and PROVE that they haven't 'overloaded'?

I can't think of a better example of wrongheaded, feel-good, does nothing useful legislation. This criticism comes from a pointy-headed liberal so take it for what it's worth. If you want to save lives from gun violence, make the 'owner' of a weapon an accessory to the crime that gun is used to commit.

Any thoughts on the way Cuomo seems determined to ram the new Tappan Zee bridge through without any comprehensive transit plans?

It is interesting how easily Cuomo is able to get things through. Looks like dad know where the bodies are buried and has photos. cue the Godfather music!

"Governor Corleone, Senator Corleone, don't worry pop we'll get there".

Greatest two movies ever made. 3rd one sucked.

Pro-abortion Governor Cuomo
Stands astride Albany like El Duomo;
His upcoming fight against Hilary
Will be like Mothra vs. Godzillary.

Governor Cuomo is so pro-abortion (see his new FOCA bill) that the comparison insults Machiavelli.
