Maryland --(Ammoland.com)-  Restrictions on Firearms Magazine Capacity

Magazines often described as high capacity magazines are normal capacity magazines. They are standard equipment with newly purchased firearms.

A police officer typically carries firearms with 12 to 18 rounds in his magazines. When a crime occurs, the victim is on the scene long before the police show up. Why should a victim have less ammunition available to deal with criminals than police officers?

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban that expired in 2004 included a limit of 10 rounds in magazines by civilian gun owners. No effect was found on crime when the magazine restriction was in place during the Federal Assault Weapons Ban, nor has there been any increase in violent crime since the limit expired.

The Supreme Court observed that “the inherent right of self-defense has been central to the Second Amendment right,” and it declared that the Amendment “Guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” Millions of rifles and tens of millions of handguns designed for self-defense are designed to use magazines that hold more than ten rounds. Because the Second Amendment protects the right to self-defense, a magazine limit is a direct attack on this right, as a defensive use of a firearm could be unsuccessful if the defender were arbitrarily limited in the number of rounds of ammunition available.

A ban wouldn’t stop a criminal from obtaining magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, by theft or on the black market.

30 round Magazine

30 round Magazine

There are literally tens of millions of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds in existence.

Criminals in murders involving multiple victims generally use multiple magazines. The official report on the Virginia Tech shootings, in which numerous magazines were used, concluded that if the criminal had been limited to 10-round magazines, it “would have not made much difference.”

About:
The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (MSRPA) is the flagship Gun Rights organization in and for the State of Maryland. The Association offers both individual and club memberships. Support of the shooting disciplines and legislative activities is primarily through a systems of committees. All participants are volunteers.
In the face of a near tidal wave of citizen disarmament occurring in Maryland, the MSRPA has played a critical part in drawing the line and standing firm for Gun Rights. Without this resistance, things would have been much worse and been so much sooner. Now the objective is to continue to develop new activists with numerous individual skills who will help us bring Maryland into line with the rest of the states which have made strong gains in protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

      You just said the magic woid – arbitrary! In order to pass constitutional muster, legislation must not be arbitrary. Because various states have proposed or enacted bans on magazines with capacities of 7, 10, 15, and 20 rounds, they can’t all be “correct,” i.e. only one of them (at most) can be non-arbitrary and rationally based. The rest must be arbitrary. But because none of them are based on any valid science or public safety standard, they are all arguably arbitrary, and thus unconstitutional!

      You should get the magazine or magazines the manufacturer built in the design of the firearm.A Glock 19 was designed with a 15 round magazine.You live in California you get 10 round magazines.A S&W M&P .45 was designed with a ten round magazine.Same thing you get 10 round mags in California.Glock 21 designed with a 13 round mag.In California 10 round mags you get.Some handguns and rifles we’re designed with 30 round magazines.Like the Kel-Tec PMR30 .22 magnum handgun.You can’t buy it in California because there isn’t a 10 round magazine made for it.Same with certain rifles.Than you have some 1911’s that have 7 round,8 round,or 10 round magazines.All cool in California.I just think you should get the magazine the handgun or rifle was designed with.If its 7 rounds,10 rounds,15 rounds,17rounds,20 rounds or 30 rounds.

      THERE IS NO MAGAZINE OR CLIP CAPACITY IN THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND THE GOVERNMENT CAN’T USURP THE 2ND AMENDMENT ON GUNS AND AMMOMUNITION OR ON THE CAPACITY THAT ANY AND EACH GUN HOLDS AT ANY ONE TIME THAT IT IS LOADED, NOTHING BASED ON FACT EXCEPT FOR SOME DERANGED SHOOTERS THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE HAD ANY GUN AT ALL AS THEY WERE NOT A SFE PERSON TO HAVE ONE, BUT WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL HERE ON THIS POINT OF MENTAL DEFIENCY TO HAVE A GUN AS THE GOVERNMENT WILL TRY TO TAKE THAT OVER TOO AND IT COULD MEAN THAT EVERY BODY COULD BE STOPPED FROM HAVING A WEAPON. A FIRE WALL HAS TO BE BUILT INTO THIS MENTAL GUN EXAM BY A DOCTOR OR THE GOVERNMENT IF A PERSON SHOWS SIGNS OF VIOLENCE OR BEHAVIOR THAT WOULD KEEP THEM FROM HAVING A GUN, I THINK THE “NRA” AND OTHER GUN RIGHTS ADVOCATES SHOULD BE IN ON THE PERSON’S TEST OR MENTAL CAPACITY WHEN THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO BAR THE CITIZENS FROM AQUIRING A GUN OF THEIR CHOICE AND THE NUMBER OF GUNS AND AMMO ETC. WE CANNOT LEAVE THIS RIGHT UP TO POLITITIONS AND SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO DISARM THE WHOLE PUBLIC AT LARGE. WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE SAY WHEN A PERSON IS STOPPED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO OWN A FIRE ARM TO SEE IF THE SAID PERSON IS REALLY NOT CAPABLE OF OWNING ONE.

      In my IDPA club we call the magazines, Standard Capacity. I shoot a G17 wiht a 17 round capacity, I can only load 10 rounds for IDPA (11 for the first mag, chambering 1). I carry a G26 and/or XD Sub compact, both designed for 10 rounds. I do not want some government telling me what I can and cannot have, especially some democrat who does not know a magazine from a clip!!
