    Technically speaking wouldn't they be preventing you from using a magazine in common usage, not a firearm in common usage? I don't think that argument would stand up. They would simply say you can still use that gun, just with a different magazine. Thus, your rights are not being infringed uppon. Silly, but they could definately get away with it.

    off-line mostly.
    If I were limited to just 7 rounds I would seriously consider a revolver.

    Possibly. I don't know. There are a lot of currently available guns for which there are no magazines that comply with NY law, effectively banning the guns themselves since magazines are an essential part of the whole. I don't want to hijack the thread, just wondering about the potentialities.

    Plug the magazine...

    Take the magazine apart and install a block plug in the bottom.
    Cut the plug to keep the carrier from accepting more than 7 rounds.

    The Heller ruling was clear that "arms in common use " could not be barred or banned, that would include AR & Magazines with 30 rounds which are standard for the AR-15. In fact I'm pretty sure that argument will soon be applied against the NY laws. Since almost every common firearm uses more than a 7 round magazine and AR-15 etc. are very common (and the police also use both) it will be hard to undermine a SCOTUS ruling that was very clear and simple to grasp.

    That being said, I first thought how nice it would be if Every NY citizen started having 44 mag, .454 Casault, .41 mag, .45 long colts, and .500 all which hold less than 7 rounds LOL

    Looks like it is starting

    The more I think about this the more towards revolvers I lean.

    I simply dont care to obey an oppressive government.

    READ MY SIGNATURE!

    It says it all.

    I certainly see your point and am primarily a revolver guy myself. However, switching from semi-autos to revolvers as a form of protest or rebellion against an oppressive government has its shortcomings, with perhaps the ultimate protest being adopting a flintlock pistol as your carry piece. That'll show 'em.

    Actually, if everyone switched to revolvers, that would be exactly what many anti-gun people want; a move away from capacity and speed toward less firepower. In a sense, your refusal to obey is exactly what they want.

    That from someone who actually prefers single-action revolvers first and foremost, :D

    Oh, well... "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" sayeth Emerson.

    I think I am miss read. Changing to revolver is an independent statement from not obeying the government one.

    You are correct. I was connecting the two statements in my mind and just having fun with the idea.

    Still, there is something enticing about the thought of really trying to improve with a bow and arrow and putting all this foolishness behind me.
