Legislative update: McCarthy Magazine ban

New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy – she of “the shoulder thing that goes up” infamy – has today introduced a bill to ban “high-capacity” magazines. The bill would ban the sale or transfer of any magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Additionally, a bill has been introduced in the New York Senate to ban “assault weapons” and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. This one has no grandfathering and mandatory surrender, and makes possession a felony.

No word yet (that I’ve seen) on Feinstein’s bill.

END OF LINE

(h/t SayUncle for both the McCarthy story and he New York state bill.)
