reply to post by Benevolent Heretic
since you called me out by name ... just remember, you asked for it.
It sure would be nice if some of you who know about guns (Semper?? Honor93??) would come in and validate that what I've said here is true
BH, you are absolutely mistaken.
yes, i've read the bill and again from your link, specifically.
you said this ...
Only semi-automatic pistols that have the capacity to accept a detachable magazine outside the pistol grip are banned
now perhaps you mis-spoke ?
but if not and you believe what you typed, you need to read it again, sloooowwwer.
i could be wrong but i think you are skipping over "pistols that have the capacity to accept a detachable magazine" ... which are most semi-auto
nowhere does it say that the pistol must have a magazine entry at the grip AND some other location. that is your error, not hers.
again, in a later post, you say ...
So, to be considered a semi-autiomatic weapon, a pistol has to be a semi-automatic that has a detachable
magazine AND another detachable magazine outside the pistol grip.
and that, my friend, is completely false.
ETA -- just to clarify in case you aren't understanding ... a SAP (semi-auto pistol) that has a detachable mag (loadable anywhere) is the first
IF that *sole* magazine loads forward of the trigger, that is sufficient for banning.
i have yet to see any SAP that has 2 loadable mag locations
have you ??
now, according to the bill ... further down ... that same grip loading mag SAP, cannot contain more than 10 rounds of ammo ... ????
well now, that's just ridiculous, most of them, are manufactured with 13 or more.
