New York –-(Ammoland.com)- The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has just released their decision on the SAFE Act legislation and it has resulted in the first permanent non legislative change.

The Court upheld Judge Skretney’s decision that the seven round magazine limit was an arbitrary number and unconstitutional limit.

But also upheld the State’s Assault Weapon ban. It’s a great victory for the Gun Owners of New York State for two reasons; first it allows firearms owners to load 10 rounds and provides the impetus needed to reach our final goal the U.S. Supreme Court.

We want to thank NYSRPA Members, the National Rifle Association, the Gun Owners of New York State and everyone else who supports The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association’s effort to defend the Constitution of the United States and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms of all citizens. Remember we have now reached the beginning of the end of our journey.

Let’s pull together and finish this fight with another victory. This time in the United States Supreme Court.

I’ve said for a long time Obummers greatest power was in his supreme court appointments. Now the court has strongly veered left and we are all screwed because of it. Not sure if it makes a difference who is in the white house.

No problem, for those who are prisoners in their own homes and can not leave NY and CT,
plenty of good quality Nashua duct tape at Home Depot to jungle tape your 10 round magazines.

John I agree with you, Dump Trump and ditch Cruz, they are unelectable in the general populace. Get a more moderate Presidential candidate or give the election to the Democrats.

A moderate republican is the same thing as a liberal democrat. We need Cruz , Carson or Trump or all is lost. We need a Constitutional president with balls and a drive to destroy all treason within our government. Karl Rove is an enemy of our Constitution as are all democrats and many republicans.

If 7 rounds is arbitrary then so is a 10 round limit.

The battle is not over folks. That judge can be replaced, and most probably wll be by a more liberal justice. If we don’t get a conservative man or woman in the White House,we can kiss the second amendment good by. The liberals (both dem & reps)know what Im saying is true,because the president nominates the justices for all the federal courts.

It seems that we have forgotten what the 2nd Amendment means. IF they get rid of the 2A, it really means NOTHING to us. The 2A does not give us the ‘RIGHT’, that is an inalienable right. Meaning that it comes from our Creator and not from government. The 2A is just an admonition to the Federal Government to not infringe on that right. Without the 2A, we STILL have the right to self protection from ANY source whither it be from inside or outside the country. If the government wants to do away with the 2nd amendment, I’m pretty… Read more »
