How many other states would this affect IF the Court overturns the NJ ban?
CA, NJ, NY, MA come to mind but I wonder how many would actually be changed.

Irrelevant, if SC rules magazine capacity is constitutionally protected then no state could regulate magazine capacity and any state law regulating capacity would be null and void.

BUT, what states actually have such restrictions in place at this time?
CA and NY probably lead the list but don't most of the New England states have magazine restrictions too? Didn't Colorado's governor ban large magazines several years ago, resulting in Mag-pul moving out of state?
