The McCarthy Magazine Ban. (updated with draft of bill)

via Politico:

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy’s (D-N.Y.) bill also goes further than than the assault weapon ban that expired in 2004, outlawing the sale or transfer of clips that hold more than ten rounds, even those obtained before the law takes effect, according to a copy of the bill obtained by POLITICO.

The bill closes a loophole in the expired assault weapon ban that let gun owners buy high-capacity magazines made before the ban took effect in 1994.

The bill carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

Luckily this bill is DOA. John Boehner has said "No" to any new gun control laws.

But just because the bill is DOA, it doesn't mean you should ignore it. If you've ever doubted how extreme the gun banners of congress could get, this is the perfect example. They want to throw you in prison for selling a plastic and metal box. Think about that for a moment.

This is why you can't compromise with the gun controllers. At least not when it comes to guns. Compromising can literally cost you your freedom and your rights. Don't believe me? Ask Brian Aitken.

UPDATE: Click the "read more" to see a draft of the bill. It's essentially the magazine ban portion of the '94 AWB, with the usual exemptions for Only Ones®, and the addition of outlawing the transfer of magazines made before the bill's enactment.
