    just got a email from hoffmans gun center. a state senator looney has
    introduced a bill to ban all magazines over 10 rounds. if you are in
    possession of high capacity magazines it will be a felony. in the bill
    it state that all high capacity magazines are to be turned in.

    Move to "Activism Discussion" until there is a plan developed...

    Which pretty much reduces the chance of it passing to zero so it's good at least that he's a lunatic.

    CT has gone crazy. There is also a bill about to voted on(HB 5800) to force "registration" of all firearms in the state and in it is a stop to private firearms sales....
    My state reps are getting earfull and locally most gun owners seem to be lit up and in action of somekind...We better make a difference, this time.

    It has been proposed, it still has to be voted on.
    I've already voiced my opinion to my local rep.
    I suggest you do the same.

    I think NY is considering this too....

    How is this proposal different from the federal law (Clinton/Brady) on high-cap mags that expired during Bush#2?

    it's different because all existing high-cap magazines must be turned in within 90 days of passage..... with no compensation either

    Really, I've e-mailed as many as I possibly can...and have been activity posting locally, in addition to writing everyone I know to drum up opposition.
    I suggest you do the same....

    Isn't there some provision in the laws of this land somewhere about no confiscation without just compensation?

    Typically doesn't apply to contraband. If this passed taking your magazines would be pretty much the legal equivalent of them confiscating the drugs when busting a meth lab.

    Tell your representatives that it raises the issue of whether a "taking" will occur. This will invitie litigation, as well as call into question the constitituionality of it. Explain that that will require state and county attorney time and cost money which the state can ill afford at this time with budgets being bad.

    The bill invites litigation and therefore will cause a lot of problems.

    Another avenue to take then simply the "we should have 10+ round magazines." Questions of whether the bill is constitutional sometimes carries more weight than what the actual bill is. Ask for an Attorney General opinion if you can, that might slow things up.

    already they tell us what rifles we can own. theres like 21-22 on the list we cant
    have. the politicans are only out for themselves. all they care about is votes .
    they would sell there soul if they could. always the law abidding
    citizens pay the price. i did write to the state senator and rep and did not receive
    anything back yet even acknowledging it.

    Probably because for the MOST part that section has almost no weight. Most guns on that list are only banned if produced by the specific manufacturer and under the specific name on that list. It's easy not to realize colt AR15 sporters are illegal, when every gunshop has tons of AR's on the wall. The main problem IS the AK section, as that just says "AK-47 Type".
