Ive got two shotguns in the house that would be banned per that law. Although I can't remember the last time I loaded more than 3 shells into a shotgun..... that law is stupid. No one is going to go on a rampage with a Benelli.

No, but they could make us put plugs in the magazine tube to limit the shotgun to 5 rounds. I'm not sure how they'd deal with Saiga and that AR looking shotgun that already have 10+ round mags in wide use.

This story pops up nearly every year since the AWB sunsetted.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

That's what I'm thinking (hoping), that's it's just idle tinfoil hat talk.

I stand corrected. But home defense isn't really a rampage. Going to Walmart and shooting all the idiots is a rampage.
