New York‚Äôs new gun law imposes a seven-round magazine capacity limit on handguns.
As Anna Rittgers notes, ‚Äúthere are blindingly few semiautomatic handguns manufactured to hold magazines with a maximum capacity of only seven rounds.‚ÄĚ
Some Twitter users say this means that the majority of semi-automatic handguns in New York will be illegal.

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs an attempt at a back door ban on most pistols. Cuomo picked 7 because all the gun manufacturers currently make 10 round mags for the restrictive states and New York is hoping the manufacturers will not want to make 7 rounders just for New York.‚ÄĚ
Others say handguns with ten-round magazines are grandfathered provided the user loads only seven rounds:
Many gun owners simply aren‚Äôt sure what the law means.
We hope officials in New York will clear up the confusion by issuing a definitive statement.
