"Decide in haste, repent in leisure"

By Donald Sensing

When you ram through legislation because you think you can't let the crisis go to waste, this happens:

It appears someone forgot to exempt police officers from the ban of ammunition clips with more than 7 bullets in New York State's new gun control law.
It's a big oversight that apparently happened in the haste by the Cuomo Administration to get a tough package of gun-control measures signed into law.
On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the sweeping gun measure, the nation's toughest. It includes a ban on the possession of high-capacity magazines.
Specifically, magazines with more than 7 rounds will be illegal under the new law. 
The problem as the statute is currently written does NOT exempt law enforcement officers.
Voters eventually get the government they deserve.
