Western District of New York map

The recent NY unSAFE decision by U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny, who presides over the Western District of New York, only applies to Western District of NY. This is a map of the NY Federal Districts.

One of the Judge’s rulings is that the 7 round limit is unconstitutional so you can load 10 rounds however this only applies to the counties that he rules over.  I called the Orange County DA’s office and they said that the rule in Orange County is still 7 rounds.  They told me that the only people who have been charged so far are people who were breaking other laws.  My impression is that this is not really something that they are going to go out of their way for. The NY State Police have said that they will abide by the Judge’s ruling across the state because they need to have a uniform standard across the state. (However I would say that don’t bet your liberty on thinking that a police officer is willing to risk their job or pension so that you can carry more than 7 rounds.)
