Are the police above the law? Do they get the “David Gregory Exemption?” Because in his haste to Do Something New York Governor Andrew Cuomo forgot to exempt them from his draconian new gun control law. That’s right, if a cop is carrying more than 7 bullets, he’s breaking the law.
Even better, if a cop brings a gun to a school, he’s breaking the law.
The NY SAFE Act, which was championed and signed into law by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, bans all magazines that hold more than seven bullets and pre-1994 high capacity magazines, and prohibits the carrying of guns on school grounds.
But because no loophole for law enforcement was included in the law, every police officer in the state is technically in violation of the statute even though the prohibition is unlikely to be enforced, according to New York Assemblyman Al Graf.
Graf — a former New York City police officer and the ranking Republican member of the assembly’s powerful Codes Committee — says that the ban could even impede the efforts of officers to respond to a school shooting.
“The language is unclear, and to go further, a cop cannot go on school property with a gun,” Graf told The Daily Caller. “They weren’t exempted from that, either.”
There was actually a story that was relayed to me the other day about a New York City police officer who went to a school the other day to pick up his kid, and the security guard told him that if he came to the school with his off-duty gun he would be arrested,” Graf continued.
Arrest the cops! I’d pay to see that. And to see the egg on the faces of the stupid liberals who created this mess in the first place. Knee-jerk liberal idiots, turning everyone into felons — even the police!. For the children of course.
This is one of the unintended consequences when politicians, usually liberal politicians contract Do-Something-Itis! They go into emoting mode, and spit out some ineffective knee-jerk legislation that does as much harm, if not ore, than it does good.
