New York Troopers Violate As Many Constitutional Rights As They Can Think Of

An upstate man was arrested under the state’s new gun law when troopers found him with a legally registered pistol that had a magazine that held nine bullets – two more than the new statute allows, state police said.

Troopers from the New Lebanon barracks in Columbia County stopped a car driven by Gregory D. Dean Jr., 31, of Hopewell Junction, around 9:45 p.m. Sunday on Route 22 because the vehicle’s license-plate lamp was not working.

While interviewing Dean, troopers noticed a handgun on the front seat, partially covered by a sweatshirt.

The troopers determined the gun, a .40-caliber pistol, was legally registered and possessed. However, when the troopers inspected the pistol, its magazine contained the nine bullets – New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act only allows seven bullets per magazine.

The headline should read – New York violates citizen’s second amendment rights after violating his fourth amendment rights.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated

the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed

    Liberty: freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.

    7 rounds maximum in a magazine is purely arbitrary. The government can make no case as to why 7 rounds is significantly different than 6 rounds or 8. Or 5 or 10 or . . . pick a number.

    New York: the new home of tyranny.

      When the next shooting occurs, and investigators find that multiple 7 round clips were used, they will want to outlaw semi autos altogether. They will just keep moving the Overton Window, until they reach their objective.

      • Gamecock says:

        They already want to outlaw semi autos altogether.

        Revolvers, too.

        Thanks for Overton Window reference. I hadn’t heard of that before, though I have seen it in action.

    NJ passed ban on .50 calibers with over 12,000ft/lb muzzle energy…and how many of those have been used in a crime?

    It’s feeling like the next ‘shot heard round the world’ has entered the chamber.

  4. Of course, that’s more than a seven round magazine.

    Gun control – hitting what you’re aiming at.
