Winning Issue » LARGE CAPACITY MAGAZINES


A firearm magazine is an ammunition storage and feeding device within or attached to a repeating firearm. The term “high capacity” magazine is often used to describe magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. These include the box, drum, rotary and horizontal magazines. Many gun safety advocates claim there is no legitimate reason for these devices since they are rarely needed for hunting or target shooting. They wish to prohibit these devices which are often used by mass-shooters. They claim the number of bullets these killers can fire before needing to reload can determine the degree of carnage that results from an assault. Opponents are not so sure reducing the size of magazines would reduce causalities. They claim several recent mass-shooters did not use high capacity magazines, they just brought more guns and magazines along with them. They also say that aside from mass shootings, most homicides are committed using far fewer than 10 rounds. For this reason, they claim a high capacity magazine ban would not have a measurable effect on our murder rate.


Pending Legislation:
H.R.752 - Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act




Polling Options

  • I oppose reforming current large capacity magazine policy and wish to defeat H.R.752 - Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act, and also wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of either Rep. Paul Ryan or Sen. Mitch McConnell
  • I support prohibiting the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, of a large capacity ammunition feeding device. Defines a "large capacity ammunition feeding device" to mean a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has an overall capacity of, or that can be readily changed to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition (except for a weapon with an attached tubular device using .22 caliber rimfire ammunition), and wish to pass H.R.752 - Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act, and also wish to donate resources to either the campaign committees of Rep. Robert Goodlatte (VA) and/or Rep. Elizabeth Esty (CT), or to an advocate group currently working with this issue
