    Just out of Curiosity...

    I was reading another post and I got to thinking...

    Just how many states STILL have the 10 round limit on magazines?

    Even though I believe that they are legal in most states since the sunset of the Assault Weapons ban, Im sure that there are a few states that took it upon themselves to limit what their citizens can own.

    If your state has banned magazines over 10 rounds, chime in.

    Ohio does not have a 10 round limit, but some cities in Ohio do. Its laughable, not enforced and no one cares, but the law is there in some cities.

    Ya I think Dayton had something like that. I'd hate to get pulled over and the officer ask to see my magazine...(cough..sarcasim..cough).

    I know MD has a 20 round limit. But thats only for sale and buying. You can legally go top any surrounding state and buy drums if you wanted to and bring them back.

    When I lived in MD, I would order Hi-Cap mags to my cousins Here in PA and just drive up to get them.

    NY except on tubular .22 rifles. Still legal to have pre-bans though. Changes how you look at things since the old capacity vs caliber is out the window

    I thought that pre-emption made all such laws defunct here? O well, I carry a 1911 anyways.

    California law on 10+ magazines

    On the California Department of Justice website there is a section of "Frequently Asked Questions". Here is the one on magazines with capacity more than 10 rounds:

    "If I have a large-capacity magazine, do I need to get rid of it?

    No. Continued possession of large-capacity magazines (able to accept more than 10 rounds) that you owned in California before January 1, 2000, is not prohibited. However as of January 1, 2000, it is illegal to buy, manufacture, import, keep for sale, expose for sale, give or lend any large-capacity magazine in California except by law enforcement agencies, California peace officers, or licensed dealers.

    (PC Section 12020 (b)(19-29))"
