New York man arrested for carting 2 extra bullets

A New York man has the dubious honor of being the first reported arrest for carrying two bullets too many in his otherwise legally authorized ammunition magazine — in violation of the state’s new gun control laws.

Troopers discovered the extra two bullets when they stopped him for a traffic offense: His license plate lamp wasn’t lit, a local newspaper covering New Lebanon, N.Y., reported.

During the course of speaking to the driver, Gregory Dean, 31, of Hopewell Junction, troopers saw a .40 caliber handgun on the front seat. It was registered and legal, but when troopers found its magazine was carrying nine bullets.

The recently passed Secure Ammunition and Firearms and Enforcement Act only allows for seven rounds per magazine, the New Lebanon paper reported.
