From CBS New York:
People familiar with closed-door negotiations told The Associated Press a tentative deal was struck over the weekend.
The tentative agreement would further restrict New York’s ban on assault weapons, limit the size of magazines to seven bullets, down from the current 10, and enact more stringent background checks for sales. Other elements, pushed by Republicans, would refine a mental health law to make it easier to confine people determined to be a threat to themselves or others.
Yaaaaaay! This means that some of Kimber’s 1911′s (with seven round magazines) are legal, while the ones that have eight round magazines are “assault weapons.” And maybe for a real laugh NY will include the eight- and nine-shot revolvers in their AWB while excluding the 5- and 6-shot revolvers.
Notice also that the NY republicans pressed for making it easier to falsely imprison innocent people. New York. Good for a laugh if nothing else.
