If You Can’t Ram It Through the Legislature

Get it on the ballot.

Some group out of Miami is working to get an assault weapon ban on the 2020 ballot. The amendment’s language defines an assault weapon as any semi-auto rifle or shotgun capable of holding more than ten rounds “at once”. It includes fixed and detachable magazines.

My gut instinct is that an unfriendly judge could interpret that as banning damn near any rifle that can accept a magazine with more than ten rounds, even if you only have “acceptable” magazines.

There is, of course, a registry for non-compliant long guns already purchased. I would imagine they’ll be lucky if they get New York compliance rates.

This is dangerous. We are going to have to fight it from getting on the ballot. Time to see what I can shake loose from the budget for my state organizations.
