The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.
The Usual Suspects against the Second Amendment do not let a shooting go to waste. Those of us old enough to have lived through the AWB are pretty stocked with mags and other devices, but the new generations might not and the point is to stop all kinds of interferences to our rights.
Time to contact both your Congress-person and your Senator and telling them we will not accept any restrictions to our Second Amendment Rights no matter how “sensible” they appear or appeal.
One last thing. Have you joined the NRA? If so, are you sure you are still a current member? I am still amazed at the amount of people who swear they are members but then realize they haven’t renewed their membership in years. Our strength is in the number of voters that the NRA leadership represents. So if you are not a member or let your status expire, JOIN HERE.
If you are a member, you may want to consider donating directly to the NRA Institute for Legislative Action. Monies for the NRA-ILA go straight to fight for our rights in Congress. Any amount will do and will be greatly appreciated. That cheap box of practice ammo for your 9mm that cost around $10 to $12? Donate that money to make sure every “round” will be used against any further attacks on the Second Amendment.
