Your NRA has learned that anti-gun legislators are attempting to hold a floor vote on House Bill 2240 to ban standard capacity magazines during the floor session this Sunday. It’s imperative you contact your state Representative today and urge them to oppose this egregious legislation!
House Bill 2240 bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds of ammunition. This bill is strongly supported by the Governor and the Attorney General. These so called “high capacity” magazines are in fact standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting. Restricted magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.
All bills must be voted out of their chamber of origin by February 19th at 5:00PM. Multiple gun bills are expected to receive votes in the next few days, so please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for additional updates.
