Troopers from the New Lebanon barracks in Columbia County stopped a car driven by Gregory D. Dean Jr., 31, of Hopewell Junction, around 9:45 p.m. Sunday on Route 22 because the vehicle’s license-plate lamp was not working.
While interviewing Dean, troopers noticed a handgun on the front seat, partially covered by a sweatshirt.
The troopers determined the gun, a .40-caliber pistol, was legally registered and possessed. However, when the troopers inspected the pistol, its magazine contained the nine bullets – New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act only allows seven bullets per magazine.
Did you catch the high points? The guy was pulled over because his license light bulb had burned out.
The GUN was legal. He got ARRESTED for having NINE bullets instead of SEVEN.
OH. MY. GOODNESS. The horror! Newtown! Dead children!
Never mind that New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (aka, the SAFE Act) is a very recent law which this guy might not have even heard of, so like … a warning could have been in order maybe?
And never mind that it’s TOTALLY LEGAL in New York to murder your unborn children right up until they manage to take a breath on their own … and afterwards, go ahead and make sure they die, cuz Barack Hussein Obama says it’s okay. And he’s like the moral compass of the whole nation! Therefore it must be okay!
Ain’t it great that we have Democrats in charge?! Especially in New York City, the Abortion Capital of the United States of Fetuses Are Not People, so that our citizens can be totally SAFE from Very Bad Things, like plastic grocery bags and extra large cups of sugary soft drinks.
I mean, phew, right?!
