Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced just a little while ago that he’ll be backing down on a provision in the new NY SAFE gun control law that would have banned gun shops from selling weapon clips that hold up to 10 bullets. The provision was set to take effect in three weeks.
The governor said it’ll still be illegal to keep 10 bullets in the clip, unless you’re in a shooting competition or at the shooting range. The change still needs to be finalized, and Cuomo was explicit that it’s not a response to his dropping popularity numbersamong Republicans, but simply to his belief that the law’s language is “inconsistent.”
