Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, following a closed door meeting with Governor Cuomo and other legislative leaders, said talks are underway to possibly re-legalize possession of 10 bullet magazines -- in some instances.

Currently, only seven bullets are allowed in a magazine, except at shooting ranges and special competitions.
Silver says it doesn't make sense to allow the 10 bullets at the shooting range, when gun owners are only allowed to carry seven bullets everywhere else.
"The law basically is inconsistent," said Silver. "In that you can't possess more than 10, but you can take 10 to the shooting range. It's under discussion."
But Governor Cuomo says lifting the ban on the ten bullet clips is not on the table.
The governor says lawmakers are simply talking about "technical corrections for consistency" before the gun laws take effect April 15.
Silver says his top concern is that assault weapons are banned, and he says lawmakers are NOT contemplating changing that provision of the law.
