Federal Court Voids 7-Round Mag Limit of NY’s SAFE Act, Allows Rest

Federal District Court Judge William M. Skretny has found that most provisions of NY’s SAFE Act–passed only one month after the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting–do not infringe the Second Amendment.
He did, however, find that the provision that limits magazine capacity to only seven rounds was unconstitutional under the Second Amendment.

This seemingly small win for gun owners is actually very important.

To see why, and to access the full text of the court’s ruling, see my post over at Legal Insurrection:
