Earlier this week we warned that Anti-Gun legislation could be coming down the pipeline. We thought the politicians would hold off until after election time, but it seems some in Washington are trying to speed things up.
Democrat Senators have added an amendment to the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 that if passed, would restrict your right to own certain gun magazines. The Amendment, S.A. 2575, would ban the sales and transfer of any clips that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Language in the bill also calls for penalties that include up to 10 years in jail for anyone who violates the law.
The bill would make anything deemed to be a large capacity ammunition feeding device illegal. S.A. 2575 defines this as:
The term ‘large capacity ammunition feeding device’— ‘‘means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition”
The Amendment is being sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Barbara Boxer (D-CA.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA.). Next week the Senate is scheduled to debate and vote on the proposed amendments to the cyber security bill.
