NY Man Arrested for Having Nine Bullets Instead of Seven Loaded in Gun

NY Man Arrested for Having Nine Bullets Instead of Seven Loaded in Gun

Gregory D. Jean of New York was pulled over Sunday evening because the lamp over his license plate was not working. He ended up arrested for violating the new NY SAFE Act.

The troopers saw Jean’s .40 caliber pistol in the front seat and asked to inspect it. The weapon is legally registered and possessed, but it contained nine bullets instead of the new legal amount of seven.

Jean is charged with unlawful possession of certain ammunition feeding devices and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, both misdemeanors, plus vehicle infractions. He was released without bail.

New York State Senator Greg Ball released this statement about the arrest:

“This is a very sad day for all fair minded New Yorkers who believe in justice and value freedom. Here we see the full effect of our actions as the SAFE Act turns a law abiding citizen into a criminal. This didn’t save a life, this just destroyed one man’s life,” said Senator Greg Ball. “I continue to plead with this Governor to please allow the common sense changes to this bill, that are obviously necessary.”
