While New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg enjoy professionally-trained security teams with standard-capacity magazines, everyday American citizens in that state are limited to an arbitrary seven-rounds in their magazines.
That’s not even four double-taps.
Why is this significant to the safety of NY families?
Because, as Bob Owens notes, bad guys are showing up in groups of two to four or more to commit their crimes.
The days of attacks by individual bad guys is over.
From metropolitan Philadelphia, PA to tiny Wilmer, AL, to North Woodmere, Long Island, NY, to Suitland, MD, and Pine Township, IN, home invaders are now commonly showing up in teams of 2-4 violent, armed criminals, willing to murder you and your family to get what the want.
Gun rights activists aren’t sitting back doing nothing.
One activist is producing videos aimed at low-information voters showing why standard-capacity magazines are in their best interests. Here’s the first of those (hat tip to Bob Owens).
But that’s not all.
Roughly 140 American firearms manufacturing and accessory companies and distributors have pledged to suspend *all* sales – including those to state, county and local government agencies – to states like New York that prohibit their states’ residents from using standard-capacity magazines.
The Police Loophole has one list.
An NC Gun Blog has the other one.
Contact your legislators and let them know that you are opposed to any arbitrary limitations on magazine capacities. Your family’s lives are worth just as much as the governor’s family.
