NY exemption for retired LEOS
In a late night session, NY exempts retired LEOs from its 7 round magazine limit. This really goes to underscore how irrational and arbitrary that sort of thing is. If 7 rounds is all a citizen would need in self-defense, isn't the same true of law enforcement? But even if there was some evidence that law enforcement has some special need to perform their duties, that cannot apply to retired LEOs, who have no such duties and have need for self-defense identical to everyone else. It's just a patronage ploy, exempting a favored, and in NY politically potent, group of citizens.
UPDATE: yep, it exempts serving LEOs. That was the whole reason for the amendment. They rushed the legislation through, never let a crisis go to waste, and only then realized that they'd cut magazine size to seven rounds, officers I guess mostly carried 9mm Glocks, and try finding a seven round magazine for a 9mm Glock.
