2015:H6074-Magazine arbitrarily restricted to 10 rounds

Postby newportri » Thu Apr 16, 2015 3:06 pm

AN ACT RELATING TO CRIMINAL OFFENSES - WEAPONS (Criminalizes the manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale or transfer of any ammunition feeding device capable of accepting more than ten (10) rounds.)
{LC2359/1}
04/15/2015 Introduced, referred to House Judiciary


There is not even a grandfather clause in this bill.
(c) Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of a high capacity magazine, shall have one hundred twenty (120) days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:
(1) Remove the high capacity magazine from the state;
(2) Sell the high capacity magazine to a licensed firearms dealer; or
(3) Surrender the high capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction subject to specific agency regulations.


I bet even the RIPCA will oppose this since they are not exempt unless they are performing their duties.
Any government officer, agent, or employee, member of the armed forces of the United States, or peace officer, to the extent that such person is
otherwise authorized to acquire or possess a high capacity magazine, and does so while acting within the scope of his or her duties;

I just saw this bill, first of all there is no historical evidence that this bill would reduce overall crime.

The state must prove that this bill is would impact public safety, one they associate taking private property for public use (by improving public safety), then this bill clearly questions the "taking clause" of the fifth amendment: "private property [shall not] be taken for public use, without just compensation."



The ridiculousness of this state and this bill:
A paintball gun is considered a firearm in the state, and I wonder how many rounds the hopper holds....
And according to Boris, bottles would become high capacity magazines.

It's rumored that this bill will get a hearing soon.
