Andrew Cuomo objects to gun control law he signed two months ago

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is on the receiving end of a lot of mockery today after he admitted that he signed a law mandating gun magazines that do not exist:

The gun-control law, approved in January, banned the sale of magazines that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. But, Mr. Cuomo said Wednesday, seven-round magazines are not widely manufactured. And, although the new gun law provided an exemption for the use of 10-round magazines at firing ranges and competitions, it did not provide a legal way for gun owners to purchase such magazines.

As a result, he said, he and legislative leaders were negotiating language that would continue to allow the sale of magazines holding up to 10 rounds, but still forbid New Yorkers from loading more than 7 rounds into those magazines.

Twitter users and bloggers were aware of the problem immediately after Gov. Cuomo signed the bill into law.

On January 16, 2013, we wrote:

New York’s new gun law imposes a seven-round magazine capacity limit on handguns.

As Anna Rittgers notes, “there are blindingly few semiautomatic handguns manufactured to hold magazines with a maximum capacity of only seven rounds.”

Even worse, the law signed by Gov. Cuomo did not provide an exemption for law enforcement officers.

Cuomo Libtard GOD, passed a gun ban bill that 1. Made the police felons and 2. Banned the smallest magazine that is made. Knee jerk politics

@motherjones Cuomo made felons out of LEO’s by not having them exempted from magazine limits. I am guessing he will change that now.

Perhaps this will be an object lesson in how not to draft legislation.

We hope so.
