Word is now Silver (Assembly leader) is pushing for a change to allow 10 round mags. Cuomo says he might agree but still wants law abiding citizens to only load 7.
They've gotten a crap load of pressure on these issues. 51 out of 62 counties are against the new laws, and have signed resolutions condeming the NY SAFE act. NYC and LI are 7 counties in the anti-gunners' back pockets, of course. Albany county (capital) couldn't get a majority against the SAFE Act, but at least did some cross over party lines to sign a petition against the new laws. Westchester borders NYC and is sticking with NYC. That leaves 2 counties still debating it out.
Virtually all the NYS Sheriffs are against the NY SAFE act, of course. They are supportive of the county resolutions against the new laws. Police chiefs in a couple big cities are still in step with Cuomo.
Opinion polls each week show less and less support for Cuomo, although he still has a majority (thanks to NYC), he could lose that majority if we keep fighting, keep spreading the word, keep educating. The anti-gun politicians no longer have support in the Upstate districts. Even a LI senator (I think, and not assembly) appologized for his yes vote and is now in favor of a repeal. There has been a repeal introduced in the senate, but I don't know if it can pick up the votes.
The strategy of the anti-gunners now seems to be to talk about changing the NY SAFE act with enough of what they are calling "technical amendents" to try and control the pro-gun outrage.
On the legal front, there are a couple lawsuits coming up that have good chance for injunction. A 3rd lawsuit (that was first to be heard) is working on appeal, but probably won't win the complaint against Cuomo's message of necessity that waived the 3 day wait and snuck the NY SAFE act in the middle of the night. But the other 2 lawsuits are addressing more substantial areas of constitutional violations.
I joined the NRA, have you yet?
