    This is apprently the new template for the left. We have a local county down here in Florida where the COUNTY COMMISSION has proposed to the state legislature that magazines over 20 rds. be banned in our state.

    MARK THESE PEOPLE WELL...GET INVOLVED when they come up for re-election and support their opponent.

    Altered by who?

    Is this only for new guns or guns we now have?

    This is not a law, YET. It is just a Raised Bill No. 1094. So far, it has just been referred to Joint Committee on Judiciary on 3/1/11. Tell your state representatives not to support this bill.

    A good way for the police chiefs to pick up a few extra bucks, selling the hicap mags out of state.

    These people need to be dragged far away from political office. And fast.

    I thought that stupid Sen. from CT was dead. Obviously his clowns are still in power.

    "No Possession" & "Surrenders such magazine" clause might be the biggest fault those left wing idiots ever made, that'll make such law much more difficult to get it pass. Even those no good CA politicians wouldn't dare to put that in their laws.

    If it did, God bless my fellow shooters.
