High-Capacity Magazine Ban Proposal Stiffer Than Clinton-Era Law
|Democratic Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy wants to make it illegal to buy or sell gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.|
A law proposed by New York congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy aims to prohibit the magazines again -- but this time, include the old ones, too.
According to the text of the gun control bill released by McCarthy's office today, her proposal would make it illegal to sell, buy or otherwise transfer any firearm magazine that holds more than 10 rounds.
Gun owners could legally possess the devices they already own, but they couldn't sell them. If McCarthy's bill passes, that would put a damper on the plans of some folks to make a boodle by stockpiling the magazines now.
