"pre-ban" still applies in some states?

Actually if you live in a state such as NY, you still must buy preban mags and firearms to comply with state law. Unfortunately I have been in NY since I took ill and will need to find someone in a free state who owns a preban Beta C mag who is willing to sell it to me for the price of two new Beta C mags that they can now purchase legally.

Now isn't this going to be a big can of worms for those who live in weak second amendment states?

    Well, this is the exact lunacy that DOES occur in these such states. For example, California has its own AWB and hi-cap mag restrictions. If you own a 10+ round magazine in California then you better be prepared to prove how you got it. I often wondered "how would they know if it was pre-ban?". I could have easily traveled to Nevada and bought a hi-cap magazine and brought it into California, how would the law know if I had it before or after the ban?

    But why would I want to risk it? If it was somehow shown that I did smuggle such an item into California after the band then I would not only be liable for possess the item, but for traffiking illegal arms! I'm sure that would put me in the slammer for quite a while.

    Apparently not. There are too many celebs there to concern the state with to care about your safety, but they have no problem busting you guys for no legitimate reason.

    Remember how many seats were lost after AWB passage? Vae victis!
    Those who would offer any interpretation that would relegate Amendment II to "relic" status of a bygone era are blatantly stating that the remainder of the Bill of Rights isn't worth a damn, either.
