On January 31st, the House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee voted to pass bills to ban most standard capacity magazines and make it more difficult to obtain a CPL. These bills will now go to the Rules Committee awaiting being pulled to the House floor. Please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 2240 and 1315.
House Bill 2240, as passed out of committee, bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds of ammunition. 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. These magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.
House Bill 1315 requires onerous government red tape and further training to obtain a Concealed Pistol License.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE House Bills 2240 and 1315.
Yours in Freedom,
