NY man charged with gun magazine violation
ALBANY, N.Y. — State police have charged a 31-year-old Hudson Valley driver with a misdemeanor after he was pulled over and found with two more bullets in his handgun magazine than allowed under New York's new gun control law.
Troopers say Gregory Dean Jr. of Hopewell Junction was stopped for an inadequate light on his license plate about 9:45 p.m. Sunday in New Lebanon.That's STATE police there, folks. Stopping a car for an "inadequate" license plate light. That's what we like to call a "fishing expedition" right there. Apparently the state of crime in New York state is so low that the police have time on their hands to check out the adequacy of license plate lights. And pull people over if they feel the lights don't meet their stringent standards.
And look, there's that handy SAFE act. OMG, he loaded two more rounds in his magazine. Of course, the irony is that the police officers were most likely carrying pistols with 15 - 17 rounds in the magazine; but that will be lost on the "four legs good, two legs bad" crowd that pushes for civilian disarmament while granting police new and exciting toys to play with. At least they're not illegally wiretapping journalists' phones. Yet.
"So, what are you in for?"
"I had two rounds too many in my handgun"
Yeah, New York, way to lead the nation in useless BS Nanny-state feel-good craptastic laws...
That is all.
