    Common Sense = Confiscation in Los Angeles, as Magazine Ban Passes – GunsAmerica Digest

    The city of Los Angeles just approved a confiscatory ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Law-abiding citizens will now have 60 days to either sell off (to a licensed gun dealer), turn over to police or render permanently inoperable any legally grandfathered magazines capable of holding 10 or more rounds.

    Basically, the government is telling responsible citizens to destroy their lawfully-owned private property because the government believes that these magazines in the hands of, again, law-abiding residents are a threat to public safety.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who signed the statute last week, told USA Today that the magazine ban is a “common sense” measure that should be imposed “nationwide.”

    At the signing ceremony, Garcetti added that the bill will help save lives.

    “I am committed to reducing the gun violence in our city,” Garcetti said. “This ban is part of that larger effort. It will help keep our streets safer and help prevent the magnitude of mass shootings. We are sending a clear message – we will not wait for Washington to act, we are ready to act now.”

    All except Law Enforcement, I am willing to bet... Exemptions in the Statute, for the Film Industry as well, I suspect....

    I wonder if Garcetti's law applies to LAPD and the SO? Didn't think so. More "do as we say, not as we do" bulltwinkle.

    Be interesting to see if anyone even bothers complying...what is he gonna do, go door to door searching for mags?

    These sound like a big pay days for lawyers litigating BS prosecutions by LA law enforcement.

    "a grandfathered magazine to a weapon for which there is no 10-round magazine produced."


    There are several exemptions for the new law: law enforcement, Hollywood prop masters, gunsmiths, museums and anyone with a grandfathered magazine to a weapon for which there is no 10-round magazine produced.

    Apparently, some of the folks that voted for this "Monstrosity" must have interest in a Magazine Manufacturing Outfit.... Otherwise, it literally makes NO SENSE at all....... The Statute is so full of HOLES, ANYONE could drive a Mack Truck thru them....

    Yeah, and just how are they going to go around confiscating them from their current owners.

    Go house to house? I'd suggest that they send city council members to do it. It's their stupid law.

    Got to say the sheeple get what they want, and what they want are idiots in office and "feel-good-do-nothing" laws. The problem is, the stupid out number the intelligent, what? Hundreds to one? Thousands? I mean look around. Obummer got voted into office with 110% of the vote (yes, really, do a google search of it) the stupid said "Oh isn't that nice". No SS#? "Oh isn't that nice". No college trans? "Oh isn't that nice". No birth cert? "Oh isn't that nice". Ignores the Constitution? "Oh isn't that nice". Wrote MORE ex orders than ALL other prezes in history? "Oh isn't that nice". Tripled the National Debt, then added even MORE debt (easily fifteen times what the country "makes", or is worth, a year, in only 7 years, which is what the gov't will ADMIT TO, and now has a free hand to spend whatever he wants...) "Oh isn't that nice". More people out of work than any time in US history since the Great Depression... "Oh isn't that nice". Wants to import terrorists into the US, "Oh isn't that nice". Well all I got to say is: "Oh isn't that nice".

    It's just a matter of time before they push these types of restrictions across the U.S. I have argued for years it don't bother me when a $h!thead has a 30round mag he dies just like the one with a 10round mag. It's called shot placement and follow through. What dose bother me is when the good people are restricted to 10 round mags to defend their self against the $h!thead with a 30 round mag..
