Unconstitutional? New NY gun laws to apply retroactively

Glenn took a deeper look at the new gun laws passed in New York this week that are being called “the most restrictive gun control laws in the country”. One of the major components of the new law being that magazines are now limited to holding only seven bullets.

“What’s interesting about this,” Glenn points out, “is that they didn’t include police officers. So, there’s no loophole for police officers.”

“So if your a police officer, you better arrest yourself,” he added.

Another detail now being discovered in this legislation is that it’s retroactive up to one year. Gun owners are not simply grandfathered into these new laws. Essentially, one year from this week, you would have to get rid of all of the magazines you own that hold over seven bullets. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law.

So legally purchased items have now become illegal.

“This is unconstitutional,” Pat said. “Say what you will about it, but it’s flat out unconstitutional.”

“Has there ever been a case of where you purchased something, and it’s now illegal?” Glenn asked.

  1. yup. 1000000% unConstitutional!

    1. As Glenn alludes, indeed, it is an Ex Post Facto ‘law,’ which is explicitly prohibited: you cannot make something illegal what was once legal, unless via Const. Amendment, ie The Prohibition.

    Which should also have been applied to all the GWB corporatist bailout cronies & torture bitches whom ‘retroactively made themselves immune’ LOL

    2. It’s a Bill of Attainder, also explicitly prohibited: any law that is specifically designed to target a particular group is unConstitutional. Now, it does not describe what constitutes a group other than whatever shared characteristic. The bill CLEARLY goes after NY gunowners who own the BS political misnomer “assault weapons.” This bill is made solely to target and punish gunowners. It’d be as illegal and unConstitutional as a bill strictly targeting Blacks, Whites, Asians, Latinos, Straight, Gays, Albinos, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Germans, Arabs, etc.

    3. The most obvious one, it violates the Second Amendment.

    Oh that inconvenient truth for every commie born since the dawn of the ‘Progressive Era’: motherfucker, what part of “shall NOT be infringed” do you not understand?

    Impeding access to something, IS the very definition of an infringement!

    It’s time for NRA to take the gloves off, and instead of ‘compromising’ they need to throw down the gauntlet and force the other side to negotiate up to where we are: the full abolition of the the ever unConstitutional agency the ATF, and full repeal vs. the NFA, GCA, FOPA, and the BradyBill, and promptly arrest FeinSTINK et al for perjury: breaking her oath to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution for the United States of America, against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, and arrest her for actively waging war against the Republic: conspiring to destroy the Constitution, without going through the proper Amendment process or a Const. Convention.

    It’s time NRA follows GOA’s lead and reaffirm once and for all what 2A has always been about: to prevent govt tyranny, be they foreign or domestic. Which means NO prohibition in ANY arms that one can bear (in its original 18th century vernacular: to yield with accuracy and be carried).
