Cuomo’s new gun law does not exempt New York cops, could prevent police from responding to school shootings

Daily Caller

A New York lawmaker says that the state’s recently passed gun control law  stunningly fails to include any exemptions for law enforcement officers, and  technically prohibits police from ever bringing guns on school grounds or  possessing extended ammo magazines.

The NY SAFE Act, which was championed and signed into law by Democratic Gov.  Andrew Cuomo, bans all magazines that hold more than seven bullets and pre-1994  high capacity magazines, and prohibits the carrying of guns on school  grounds.

But because no loophole for law enforcement was included in the law, every  police officer in the state is technically in violation of the statute even  though the prohibition is unlikely to be enforced, according to New York  Assemblyman Al Graf.

Graf — a former New York City police officer and the ranking Republican  member of the assembly’s powerful Codes Committee — says that the ban could even  impede the efforts of officers to respond to a school shooting.

    I guess they had to pass the bill to see what was in it.

    Legislatures should be deliberative bodies, not rubber stamps for a demagogue’s passion.

    Very interesting data related to Gun Control !
    Why is it that the progressive liberals that Steal Guns, Who then og and kill movie goers and children in schools have never been a conservative NRA member.
    Ft.Hood-Registered Democrat – Muslim
    Columbine-Too young toVote -Boh Families were registered Democrats and progressive liberas.
    VA Tech-Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff. Registered Democrat.
    Colorado Theater Shooting-Registered Democrat, Staff worker on the Obama campaign, Occupy Wall Stree participant, progressive liberal.
    Con. Sandy Hook School Shooter-Registered Democrat, hated christians.
    Common thread is tha all of these Shooters were Progressive Liberal Democrats.

    Sucks to not having read a bill, before going out and posing for the stupid.

    No matter. New Yorkers probably can’t read either, else they wouldn’t elect the garbage they elect.

    @Jim…

    Because it is just another example of Lefties projecting their own failings and rage onto their opponents. Have you read “Epic gun debate failure” in the Bullpen yet? It has a great example of Leftie projection.

    So for all new cops getting sworn in, first you repeat the oath of office and then, second, have the Miranda warning read to you.

    Even without sound, I hear his grating, annoying voice when I look at that picture.

    I hate this idiot.

    And we are stuck with him. New York is working overtime to force law-abiding citizens (and taxpayers) to leave the state. Give it a year and all that will be left are welfare recipients and criminals.

    Why exempt police? they are Peace Officers not Para military… allow an exception for SWAT, but why should the average police officer or more importantly private security, bank guards, political figure protection details etc be exempted?
