The few arrests stemmed from having a fully loaded standard magazine. I know of two cases that got tossed out because the officer needed a warrant to check the magazine. If an officer in the Western part of New York arrested a licensed civilian for carrying a pistol, exceeding 7 rounds in a standard 10 round magazine. The officer would be liable under Federal Law for violating the rights of the person he arrested.boosti,
On that topic. It would be helpful to eliminate the confusion in the NY Safe Act. The Safe Act has a 10 round magazine restriction, however, when not in a range you can only have 7 rounds in the magazine; as you know Federal Court in Upstate NY rulled that the limit of 7 rounds in the 10 round magazine was unconstitutional, however, since said Federal Court has no jurisdiction in Nassau/Suffolk no one has tested whether having 10 rounds in the magazine is now leagl across the whole State and the Safe act has not been amended.
The lack of consistency throughout the State of NY makes it difficult to comply with all the Couunty Specific rules. Iti is like you need an engineering degree to design a flowchart to follow the rules.
