199. Which serves no purpose.
Banning large capacity magazine but not firearms which can accept any size magazine is futile. Your firearm still can use magazine of virtually any size.

There is no technical constraint. You obeyed the law criminals tend to not do so. A criminal who is already violating dozens of laws including possessing an illegal firearm is really going to care that the magazine isn't compliant. Really?

Of course not. Given a magazine is stamped from sheet metal it isn't very hard for someone to make their own plus you have the issue of hundreds of millions of magazines already existing.

Once again it is a feel good do nothing law that simply prohibits the law abiding from having full capacity of the weapon.
