SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Enforcement issues surround two Northern California cities' bans on high-capacity magazines.

The Oakland Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/lvtufr3 ) reported Saturday that since Sunnyvale's ban went into effect midnight Thursday, not one of the now-illegal magazines has been turned in.

One of the basic laws of parenting. Don’t make a rule or a threat you can’t enforce.

Gee, imagine that...no one is complying. I guess you LEOs are going to have to raid all the houses in town to locate the contraband magazines, right? Right? Are you men or mice, LEOs? Squeak up, gents.

Amazing, the morons are betting the authority of their offices and the respect of the citizenry for the law on the proposition that the mere possession of a metal or plastic box with a spring is somehow dangerous. Oh, and they are willing to risk the lives of decent people and officers as part of that bet. Assholes!

Banning Gun Magazines is against my 1st Amendment Right. I like reading Gun Magazines and a free press is guaranteed by the Constitution and . . . wait a minute, we’re talking those thingys that hold the cartridges, aren’t we? Oh nevermind.

N.J. Democrats propose limiting capacity of gun magazines

Seems like a violation of the First and Second Amendments.

Were I there, I would surely and heartily berate those worthy oriental gentlemen for ending their collective sentences with singularly offensive prepositions.

I am shocked; shocked I tell you!

It's not too late for owners to turn over the high-capacity gun magazines to police, Sunnyvale spokeswoman Jennifer Garnett said.

Yep - That's gonna happen.

Explains what that Chevy Volt with CA plates was doing at the Mesa gun show last week - buying expedition for the Yahooligans or the Googlers.

I bet this turns into “Another excuse to put young black men in prison” since large mags are a favorite of gangs and they are more likely to use them.
