Legislation to ban large-capacity gun magazines like the one used in the Jan. 8 mass shooting in Tucson has been introduced in the Arizona Legislature.
The bill was introduced late Monday by Rep. Steve Farley of Tucson and 19 other Democratic lawmakers.
The legislation would generally ban magazines with more than 10 rounds. Authorities have said the Tucson shooter opened fire with a magazine that had more than 30 rounds in it before he was subdued.

America! It's about
Have a nice day Stevie. This crap ain’t going anywhere.
AZ GOP, don't be brainless! Mccain was bad enough...
Let us blame an inanimate object for the massacre.
liberals and avoiding the obvious truth.
>AZ GOP, don’t be brainless! Mccain was bad enough...
Hey, as long as we’re being cruel let’s bring up Napalitano, too.
Stevie Farley and 19 other DemoRat legislators...
The left is clueless.
The criminal / insane murderer is responsible for the massacre, period. He could have used a car, a suicide vest or an illegal weapon to do his dirty deed. I suspect this is for show purposes only.....
Snowball’s chance =============>> Hell.
High cap mags >10 rounds have generally been banned in CA for many years. While it would be illegal, I could get one anytime I wanted.
You have got to be kidding me, the socialist state of NJ, one of the most unfriendly 2A states allows a 15 round magazine.
Being that this is Arizona, the front line, I have no doubt that large mags will be very useful considering what is just south of them. This bill will go NOWHERE.
you are right, the bill will go nowhere....but why do people pass asinine ligislation like this.....we will prevent all our lw abiding citizens from having those evil magazines ut all the folks who tell the law to go to hell will have them....makes sense to me.....kind of like gun control

whoops, I posted then corrected...sorry
“you are right, the bill will go nowhere....but why do people pass asinine legislation like this.....we will prevent all our law abiding citizens from having those evil magazines but all the folks who tell the law to go to hell will have them....makes sense to me.....kind of like gun control”
TOTALLY gun control. But the political fight is OVER, and we won. Pelosi would not even touch it after Virginia Tech (owning the House and Senate) and then after Obama was elected...owning all 3 branches of government (as Shumer would say). The only hope for gun control now is executive fiat.
Ya, the Feds are giving AZ land to the drug cartels anyway.....no sense in being able to defend yourself......
Sounds like some Dembulbs will be finding new jobs after the next election cycle.
Why do people pass stupid laws?
Because too many of our citizens (and subsequently those we elect) think the government is the answer for everything.
Stupid and reactionary legislation like this is what our politicrats believe to be leadership. Everytime there is any incident of national interest involving a gun there is a host of politicians suggesting restrictions on firearms.
This young man was obviously twisted and sick and did not care about gun laws. He went there to murder and frankly he would have probably killed more people if he had rented a Suburban and drove it into the crowd.
Laws only apply to those who follow the law. The lawless among us don’t care what law they violate and there are already laws against murder and assault.
Why waste newsprint and trees when you can get the magazine electronically? /Emily Latella>
Nobody should own a magazine that they are physically unable to lift. Dragging one around through the dirt will ruin them.
Ban 30’s? Hell, I can fit three 16’s in my butt pocket easier. Liberalism is a mental illness.
I’m all for it. Just remember the result of the assault weapons ban. (hint...it was the 1994 congress) All those union members that like their rifles, shotguns, and pistols will turn on those commies again in record numbers resulting in a Republican majority of epic proportions in both the house and senate. Bukkake Hussein Osama is such a freaking idiot he’ll push this through even knowing the NRA is gonna shove this right back up his *** next election.
DEMonstrates how really stupid the proponents are.
They cannot reason through to the obvious consequences.
Why don’t they just ban Murder instead?
Presented by the wusses who want to make us like CA.
Unions, Arizona? No connection of the dots. Too much conservative representation for this to go anywhere but the trash heap.
[Why dont they just ban Murder instead?]
Why didn’t I think of that. Why didn’t God think of that when Cain took his brother out. Oh, the humanity!
Somebody’s gonna take your new idea and make a law out of it and the world will be safe!
You are brilliant my FRiend.
If it's such a good idea, let our public servants prove it by applying the same limitation to all firearms carried by police.
Carry a magazine with more than 10 rounds, lose your cop job, public health insurance and retirement benefits, and go to jail.
I just saw a whole box of 33 round Korean Mags guaranteed for Glock 17, 19, 26, etc.....half off of 49.95.....wonder how they function.... I have several Glock manufactured ones that are in the $30-$35 range (bought them when the time was right).....
