Nice try Howard, but an illegal capacity magazine is illegal with or without rounds. It's kind of like claiming a illegal firearm is ok if it doesn't have a bullet in the chamber.
What's the matter MSM; didn't think the laws you asked for should apply to you?
In NJ the intent of charging someone with AWB violation for EACH illegal mag was suppose to be applied to street gang. The hope was catching a perp with one illegal gun and several illegal mags. Thus on a simple gun charge the police and DA can rack up charges and time in prison if they find an illegal gun or rifle on a gang member. The anti gun people also back this to make it onerous for anyone who attempts to ignore the ban. DC has the same mentality. Guess what, liberal MSM is about to learn what happens when gov overdoes what they originally wanted to do.
