Do You Promise To Put Only 7 Rounds In A 10-Round Clip?
A key element of New York's gun control law appears as if it will have to depend a great deal on the honor system.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says New York will suspend the April 15 effective date to ban the sale of magazines holding more than seven bullets.
That's because seven-bullet magazines aren't made.
Silver also says manufacturers have made it clear they will never make seven-bullet magazines that would conform to the law.
The law will still require New Yorkers to put no more than seven rounds in a 10-bullet magazine, or face up to a misdemeanor if they are caught.
There's an exception for use at shooting ranges and in competitions.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders have agreed to other technical fixes in the law.
