18. McCarthy has introduced a bill to ban the standard factory magazines
Edited on Sat Jan-22-11 08:17 PM by benEzra
for many of the most popular civilian firearms in the United States, and she deleted the original's burden-of-proof requirement so that the onus this time would be on all ~40 million owners to prove their magazines are preban. If you can't prove it, you could get 10 years in prison.

Oh, the capacity limit she chose is so low that it outlaws replicas of civilian guns from the 1860's.



And unlike the 1994 law, this ban wouldn't exempt Civil War replicas.
