District Judge William Skirting of Buffalo ruled that most other aspects of the SAFE Act are constitutional, in the opening act of a legal battle over the law.

  Gov. Cuomo’s gun law requires the creation of a registry of assault weapons.

ALBANY — A federal judge Tuesday struck down a key portion of Gov. Cuomo’s new gun law that made it illegal to load more than seven bullets in a magazine.

District Judge William Skirting of Buffalo handed a partial victory to gun rights advocates when he ruled the seven-round limit was arbitrary and not “substantially related” to the state’s interest in protecting public safety.

But he ruled that most other portions of the law — known as the SAFE Act — are constitutional, including its beefed-up ban on assault weapons.

The decision marked the first volley in what is likely to be an extended legal battle over the law

  1. Sorry but the judge is wrong !!!!…The Phrase "Shall not be infringed" in the second amendment could not be more clear than that ! -apparently the judge has a reading comprehension problem .

  2. he needs to get the boot when we should beable to get whatever gun we can afford … judges are like congress and all government can be paid off to give whatever they think is right . when hes clearly wrong . government wants to ban as many guns and keep the rounds low so when we fight back they are trying to cripple us before it even happens they are scared … as they should be .

  3. The history of the 2nd amendment is even more clear….all of this gun control stuff past and present, is a violation!!

  5. From the Supreme Court on down through the entire US judicial system what is taking place is called "legislating from the bench" meaning that judges are interpreting/making the laws as they see fit. AND..it's illegal according to the Constitution of the United States. Want it to stop? Support your local Tea Party and/or Constitutionalists.

  6. you make $27h…good for you! I make up to $85h working from home. My story is that I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45h to $85h…heres a good example of what i'm doing,
