Attention Lawful Owners of Semi Automatic Pistols in NY State

Post by Rumrunner on Mon Jul 22, 2013 10:48 pm

he following excerpt from a letter from NY City Police is a must for any licensed owner of a semi automatic pistol that is capable of accepting any magazine of more than 10 rounds.

Remember the 5 year renewal? Be prepared for inspection and seizure of your pistol.

The letter can be viewed in PDF but here is the text typed so it can be copied and pasted.

Original doc sent to SCOPE on 7-21-2013

Second paragraph labeled MAGAZINES

The NY SAFE Act prohibits possession of a magazine that has the capacity to hold more than ten (10) rounds of ammunition regardless of when it was manufactured or when it was obtained. It also prohibited possession of a magazine if is it loaded with more than 7 rounds of ammunition, unless you are at a range.


Many license holders own handguns with magazines that have a capacity to hold over ten (10) rounds that were previously legal because they were manufactured prior to September 13 1994. Those magazines are now illegal. As a result in order to maintain or renew their licenses, many license holders must surrender or permanently modify their magazines.
If you own such a magazine the License Division will accept reasonable proof, such as a receipt for the purchase of a magazine that is in compliance along with proof of disposal of prior magazine, of certification from a licensed gunsmith indicating that the magazine has been permanently modified to be in compliance with the new law.


Please keep copies of any documents that indicate actual magazine capacity and the date you purchased you new magazine or permanently modified your existing magazine and be prepared to provide it to the License Division upon request.







Translated: Be prepared for inspections seizures and confiscation of your private property.

Thank you Governor Cuomo.
