Washington: Anti-Gun Legislators Push 10 Round Magazine Ban Legislation Through Committee

Late last week, Magazine Ban legislation, Senate Bill 5078, was passed out of the House Committee on Civil Rights and Judiciary on a party-line 11-6 vote.  Anti-gun legislators are pulling out all the stops to get this measure passed as soon as possible; it now heads to the Rules Committee and it could receive a final vote on the House Floor as early as Wednesday, February 23.  It is extremely important that you contact your State Representative and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5078.

Senate Bill 5078, bans the manufacture, sale, transfer, importation, etc., of magazines that “are capable of holding,” or hold more than, 10 rounds of ammunition.  This includes conversion kits or parts from which any such magazine may be assembled.  These so-called “high capacity” magazines are, in fact, standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans constitutionally and effectively use for an entire range of lawful purposes, such as self-defense or competition.  For example, the Glock 19 was the most commonly purchased firearm of 2021 and has a standard-issue magazine that holds 15 rounds of ammunition.  Any violation of this measure is a gross misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of 364 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $5,000.

Again, this is the last chance for NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters to contact their legislators in opposition to this extreme anti-gun measure. Please contact your state Representative and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 5078.
