In my opinion we are not dealing with honest people; I am reffering to the anti-gun members of the legislature only. How bout this scenerio, we drop our oppositon to the standard capacity magazine ban in return for the votes to pass CCW. We get the votes for CCW and both bills go to Quinn who vetoes the CCW and signs the standard capacity ban. Then somehow we lose the votes for an override, we are now stuck with a magazine ban and no CCW. It doesn't matter if it is two seperate bills or the same bill it could still happen. Quinn could line item veto the CCW out of the bill and it ends up again the same way with more restrictions and no CCW.
Even if the bill was all passed and only restricted the magazine in the gun you are carrying, what if you forget which magazine is in the gun. Does this mean you are carrying an illegal gun, misdomeaner or felony or grounds to lose your permit? This is a NO DEAL for me. Jim.
Disclamer: I do not own any handgun that has a magazine capacity over eight rounds.
We wouldn't be pushing anything about "owning" high capacity magazines, just carrying for CCW purposes, If they tried to ban owning high capacity magazines it would be a whole different ballgame.
And on a side note, I bet that with the recent shootings in Tuscon and now Colorado (where high capacity mags were clearly used) the high capacity limits ARE going to come into play in order to get CCW passed whether we like it or not. Its what the Antis do.
