If a magazine capacity ban occurs again, will I be able to keep and use my current hi cap mags? Will I be able to order new mag springs for them? I am asking this question based on what happened during the last hi cap mag ban. Thanks.:)

As currently written, probably. But your state might go further if they don't agree with what happens at the federal level.

In other words, until something passes, nobody can say for sure.

That's yet to be determined, as nothing has been passed on a federal level. They could be grandfathered in, or it could be like NY where you can have them, but you can't load to full capacity. Or it could be nothing. Too soon to tell.

It depends on a number of things. Will there be a grandfather clause? If not then I would not worry about getting parts for your "Hi Cap" mags as they won't be getting much use.

Also remember that your mags are not "Hi-Cap" they are standard capacity. The people that want these standard capacity mags banned are calling them "Hi-Cap".

If it were like the previous ban, you would be able to keep your current mags that were made before the ban date and get parts that were made before the ban date. After the ban only military and LE turn in mags would be available as mags that were manufactured after the ban went into effect.

Best bet is to fight now and write your representatives and donate to the NRA-ILA to make this a moot point....

Senator Feinsteins bill does not allow for "grandfather" of magazines.

"High-capacity" magazine? Senator, I am unaware of the existence of any such thing, nor would I be disposed to discuss such a thing if it did in fact exist, Senator.

Senator Feinstein's bill is also asking for the Moon, should I worry about that falling in my yard too?

I wouldn't worry about anything before it happens, and just keep writting letters and making calls. The chips are going to fall where they may. Just remember, there are millions of them already out there, and we are talking about a dysfunctional government that is incapable of upholding most laws it has on the books now.

Gonna be hell to pay here in Texas if they try to enforce it.

Nobody can know what, if any, magazine ban will look like.

As far as talk, which is very cheap, the one thing that seems to be different this time around from last is that there may be a prohibition on the transfer of "pre-ban" mags...if they are grandfathered in somehow.

In a naked act of profiteering, I sold all my 30s for a great deal of money to somebody who seemed more than happy to purchase them at that price. I have a whole bunch of 20s which I kept...but would do same at even more outrageous prices if a ban becomes imminent.

A Roman political pholosopher was quoted in a German debate leading up the Weimar Republic's gun laws after World War I: it does the dignity of the law no good to pass unenforcable statutes.

Nearly two millenia of preaching "pass only what laws you can actually enforce", and governments still pass stupid laws to send a message: we're not ignorant because the ignorant can learn, we're stupid because the stupid never learn.

Speculation is such a useless waste of effort.
