Bill/Issue: Federal attempts to enact a "high-capacity" magazine ban.
- Position: OPPOSED
In yet another craven attempt to exploit tragedy, anti-gun interests on Capitol Hill are pursuing federal magazine restrictions. With the Senate set to debate gun control proposals soon, we expect legislation that would ban any magazine with a capacity over 10 rounds. However, there could be additional restrictions imposed on your magazines.
As we have noted many times, any attempt to restrict standard-capacity magazines would only result in millions of Americans being rendered more unsafe.
What's more, there is no basis in law or historical tradition that would support such a ban.
“Such firearms and magazines are constitutionally protected today, period," said FPC President Brandon Combs. "Time and technological evolution do not change the fundamental nature or the scope of constitutional rights against government infringement.”
Tell the U.S. Senate and President Trump that you won't stand for this baseless attack on your magazines!
