New York lawmakers take pride that their gun laws are especially draconian. 

The original version of the NY SAFE Act accidentally made it so any duty firearms police officers carried were likely illegal because most hold more than seven rounds. 

This was amended to ten rounds, so officers wouldn't have to arrest themselves.

When the state government banned so-called high-capacity magazines they didn’t allow a grandfather clause, giving targeted owners three options; turn the firearms in question over to police, transfer them out of state, or turn themselves in.

The increasingly hostile attitude towards guns caused Remington Arms to move its operations from Upstate New York to Alabama – one of the friendliest states for gun owners.
