Did a search, nothing came up so I hope it's not a Dupe.

This bill would, commencing January 1, 2011, and subject to
exceptions, require registration of large-capacity magazines with the
Department of Justice. The bill would require registration of
large-capacity magazines no later than January 1, 2011, for magazines
that are already possessed, as specified, and would provide that
large-capacity magazines acquired after January 1, 2011, be
registered within 30 days of taking possession. The bill would
establish exceptions to these provisions. The bill would require
local and state entities to register their large-capacity magazines
as institutionally owned, as specified, and would require those
entities to report to the department the disposition of
large-capacity magazines by those entities that constitute a
nuisance, as specified. The bill would authorize the Department of
Justice to charge a fee, not to exceed $20, for registration of
large-capacity magazines, and would authorize increases in that fee,
as specified. The bill would exempt local and state entities from
that registration fee.

Bill was pulled by its author. It's not doing anything right now.

"Apr. 22 Set, first hearing. Hearing canceled at the request of author."

And I'm guessing that if it ever did happen there would be some sort of "registration" period during which the state would somehow be flooded with hi cap magazines.

Theoretically could be a 2-year bill, and return in January 2010. Otherwise we can ignore it.

Unenforceable.



That's what many people said about the 2000 assault weapons ban, and didn't get their registation paperwork in.
