More Magazine Bans

Now introduced in New York State as well. This one also has no grandfathering, just a blanket ban on possession. As I mentioned before, these bans are absolutely useless, because you’re essentially talking about banning a box with a spring. Jilted at the federal level, our opponents are resorting to pushing in the few state legislatures that will actually still listen to them.

    It’s extremely useful, think of the increased revenues for the government and prison industries.

    If only a few large states ban normcaps, it might just be enough of the marketshare to compel manufacturers to discontinue some models in favor of single stacks, “pocket rockets”, etc.

    What a bunch of nonsense. NY already has a high-cap mag ban! The sole situation this bill would affect is that of the person who, not already lawfully owning high-caps, buys high-caps manufactured before 1994 at gigantically high prices.

    Are we to believe that 17 year-old magazines are such a scourge that New York’s legislature should take up this issue rather than fixing their horrendously broken state?

    Stupid Maryland already has a stupid 20 round limit, and now there’s a stupid proposition to further restrict it to a stupid 10 rounds.

    Maryland is dumb.

    Funny how any concessions made at the time of a new gun law turns into a “glaring loophole” later. And we are supposed to accept HR308 because we can keep the magazines we currently have?

    “Stupid Maryland already has a stupid 20 round limit, and now there’s a stupid proposition to further restrict it to a stupid 10 rounds.”

    Markie Marxist sez: “Exactly! Once we Marxists get a restriction in place, we can ratchet down the number over time. 10 rounds today, 6 rounds tomorrow, one round next week, zero next month. We commies are pretty clever like that, aren’t we?”
