Hey, Media Matters... About those seven round mags...

A few weeks back, Media Matters for America went bonkers. How dare a Gannett newspaper report there were no seven round magazines for many modern firearms.

Media Matters, a left-wing spin machine, boldly proclaimed:
Gannett Article Falsely Claims NY Law Forces Gun Owners To Use Magazines That Don't Exist  
Nothing larger than seven round mags are allowed under New York's new gun law. They have to exist, right?

Well, look what's popped up on Bloomberg news:
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s seven-round limit on magazines sold in New York will be suspended “indefinitely” by a measure in his $136.5 billion budget set to be passed this week, Dean Skelos, a Senate majority leader said. 
The ban on magazines holding more than seven bullets was set to start April 15. Cuomo has said the law needs to be rolled back because manufacturers don’t make seven-round holders. The measure was a center piece to a gun law the 55-year-old Democratic governor pushed through the legislature in January, making New York the first state to respond with tougher gun regulations to the Newtown, Connecticut school massacre. 
Yes, seven round mags exist for some firearms. For others, ain't no such thing.

If New York legislators had done their jobs, and bothered to research a bill before voting, they might not look like imbeciles right now. But instead, they chose to bow to a power hungry governor rather than hear the will of the people or consider basic reality.
