If his magazine held more than 10 rounds, which is possible with 2 of the 3 models of Glock's he was likely carrying, that is a class D felony.
It is a class D felony to manufacture, transport, dispose of, or possess a large capacity ammunition feeding
device, which N.Y. Penal Law § 265.00(23) defines as "a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device"
manufactured after September 13, 1994, "that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted
to accept, more than ten rounds of ammunition." Section 265.02.
New York State has arguably the most restrictive gun laws in the US. Combine that with various classes of Felonies mentioned above and I'm thinking nobody get's off without some time in the pokey, football player or not.
