There's been quite a bit of talk in the news about banning "high capacity" (I.E. standard capacity) magazines because some crazy shithead killed people with a Glock. I'm not going to get into the absurdity of saying "10 rounds good, 12 rounds evil" but I did want to expand on something I saw at Unc's.
As Unc points out, a few states have their own restrictions on mag capacity and of course, the free market has found a way to legally get around the restriction by selling repair kits. People in these less free states want standard magazines like the rest of us and the market has responded to that demand. Isn't capitalism great?
Of course there's also nothing stopping me from buying a ton of hi-cap mags and having friends from Maryland drive into Delaware so I can give them to folks who need them.* Likewise if Delaware passed such a law I could simply drive a few minutes into PA, buy all the mags I could afford and then return. Maryland residents may own normal magazines, they just can't buy them anywhere inside MD or have them shipped into the state. If you were a MD resident in say, Elkton this would be trivially easy, since there's a gunshop right over the MD/DE state line in Newark on 896.
I'm not sure how that works in other ban states, but I suspect we'll see similar activity in CA in response to the draconian ammo restrictions imposed by AB962. That's good news for businesses in AZ, OR and NV and not so good for CA. Then again California liberals despise capitalism anyway.
People who desire freedom will find a way around bad laws while simultaneously trying to change them. Criminals will just ignore them and go about business as usual.
