    Restriction on magazine capacity legislation to hit senate floor

    Here is a earmark amendment to the cybercrime bill that will most likely hit the Senate floor this week. It is on the S.3414 part of the bill. Amendment 2 (S.AMDT.2575) under miscellaneous page S5403. I would put in a link but it times out after 30min. Just go to senate.gov and active legislation if you want to see it. Follow the above location to find it.


    [``(v)(1)(A)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), it shall be unlawful for a person to transfer or possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

    [Page: S5403] GPO's PDF
    ``(ii) Clause (i) shall not apply to the possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device otherwise lawfully possessed within the United States on or before the date of the enactment of this subsection.

    ``(B) It shall be unlawful for any person to import or bring into the United States a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

    ``(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--

    ``(A) a manufacture for, transfer to, or possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States or a State or a department, agency, or political subdivision of a State, or a transfer to or possession by a law enforcement officer employed by such an entity for purposes of law enforcement (whether on or off duty);

    ``(B) a transfer to a licensee under title I of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 for purposes of establishing and maintaining an on-site physical protection system and security organization required by Federal law, or possession by an employee or contractor of such a licensee on-site for such purposes or off-site for purposes of licensee-authorized training or transportation of nuclear materials;

    ``(C) the possession, by an individual who is retired from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited from receiving ammunition, of a large capacity ammunition feeding device transferred to the individual by the agency upon that retirement; or

    ``(D) a manufacture, transfer, or possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device by a licensed manufacturer or licensed importer for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General.''.

    (c) Penalties.--Section 924(a) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following:

    ``(8) Whoever knowingly violates section 922(v) shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.''.

    (d) Identification Markings.--Section 923(i) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following: ``A large capacity ammunition feeding device manufactured after the date of the enactment of this sentence shall be identified by a serial number that clearly shows that the device was manufactured after such date of enactment, and such other identification as the Attorney General may by regulation prescribe.''.]

    Big surprise on the sponsors.....

    These effin idiots will never "get it".
    I received my first carry permit in 1992 and carried a gun with 12 round mag and 1 spare mag for a total of 24 rounds on my person. When I bought a new carry gun in 1997 after the AWB was in place I had a 10 round mag in the gun with 2 spares, so these liberal idiots did nothing more then have me carry 6 more rounds then I did before they started their games.

    This amendment will be voted down by a large margin (vote on the amendment is next week, I believe). Not only all republicans but a good number of democrats will shut it dow. No way this can go in the current environment and before elections. Schumer and company know this very well.

    Just political posturing for the folks back home. Shameful self promotion on the part of the sponsors.
