Benito Cuomo's Kafkaesque Fiat

"Gun dealers wonder how they are going do business after April 15, when the only magazines they can legally sell will not exist" — In gun law, Cuomo mandated something that doesn't exist. From the article:
    New York will have the smallest gun magazine limit in the country starting April 15.

    Gun manufacturers have never had a reason to make a magazine with fewer than 10 rounds, because no state required it until now. And, as far as local gun dealers and the Democrat and Chronicle have been able to determine, there are no manufacturers planning to make seven-round magazines.

    This means that in less than two months gun dealers such as Paul Martin, owner of Pro-Gun Services in Victor, can only sell something that doesn’t exist yet.

    “There was never a need for a (seven-round magazine),” Martin said. “Not many manufacturers are going to bother to make something just for the state of New York.”

Well, this will probably make the M1911 in .45ACP very popular in NY, as the standard magazine holds .... seven rounds. And there are 5 round hunting magazines for many rifles, even for the 8-round M-1 Garand, because numerous jurisdictions limit hunters in that manner.
