I'll disagree with you for the sake of argument.

In most cases, those firearms were designed for a round capacity greater than 10.

In order to sell product in localities where greater than 10 rounds was banned, the factory modified those original magazines to accept no more than 10 rounds.

So, whether the design was modified by the manufacturer or the end user to reduce capacity, it is still considered a "modification".

The proposed law states that permanent modifications performed to reduce capacity will be illegal. There is no distinction between user-modified and factory-modified magazines.

It is clearly idiotic and without logic in terms of reality, but there it is. Would you expect anything else from a legislature that attempts to regulate things of which it has no knowledge?
