    Let me be clear about this issue to the people of Connecticut

    I would like to point out that some SKS semi automatic rifles have a fixed 20 round magazine, meaning it cannot be removed without making alterations to it. If that happens according to the law would make that rifle illegal unless you make it 992r compliant, under Federal law. I think even if you are replacing the 20 round fixed magazine to a 10 round fixed magazine you will be altering the rifle into something other than it's original state that it was created as. This new legislation if passed would be violating the second amendment and the recently supreme court ruling Heller vs. D.C. and McDonald vs. Chicago.

    1 Section 1. (NEW) (Effective July 1, 2011) (a) As used in this section,
    2 "large capacity magazine" means any detachable ammunition feeding
    3 device with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds of
    4 ammunition, but does not include: (1) A feeding device that has been
    5 permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than ten
    6 rounds, (2) a .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device, or (3) a
    7 tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm.

    States rights don't extend to not letting someone go on a shooting spree with 30-rounds before reloading?

    And before you start- those extra bullets won't do shit against a tank, so spare us the 'my home needs to be stockpiled with enough weapons to take on the US military' bullshit

    considering it takes a trained person only 2-3 seconds or so to change mags how much good does this law do, considering the maniac is already on a shooting spree?

    Oh, and of course he will follow the law, and only carry 10 round clips at all times.

    Just more feel good window dressing from gun control people that does no real good, except make them feel like they did something, and move more toward thier gun free "utopia"

    So the only argument you have against sensible legislation is your Rambo fantasy of over throwing the government of the United States?
