Governor Cuomo signed the strictest gun control law in January saying that having magazines with more than a 8 round capacity is defined as a criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree; a “Class D Violent Felony.”
Yes, it a worse crime to have more than 7 bullets loaded in the magazine of your gun, than it is to be a child molester! This is typical progressive mentality, anything to feel virtuous.
Listed below are a few crimes in New York that are class E felonies and A misdemeanors which are one or two arrest levels below a class D felony.
120.70 – Luring a child | E Felony
125.10 – Criminally negligent homicide | E Felony
130.20 – Sexual misconduct | A Misdemeanor
130.25 – Rape 3rd degree | E Felony
130.40 – Criminal sexual act 3rd degree | E Felony
130.52 – Forcible touching | A Misdemeanor
130.53 – Persistent sexual abuse | E Felony
130.65A – Aggravated sexual abuse 4th degree | E Felony
130.85 – Female genital mutilation | E Felony
Being a New Yorker (hating it by the second) I am outraged and surprised that people are not doing anything about this new stupidity. How can we let this happen? Is this how we keep our children safe?
