I'm trying to come up with a list a of states that prohibit or restrict the sale of high capacity magazines. I've seen several different "lists" of states that prohibit or restrict them and no two lists are the same. So post your states info here and I'll edit my post to keep a running total of the state. I've found a really good site for all firearms information. So far it seems accurate. However, an anti-gun organization put it together. [url]http://www.firearmslawcenter.org/content/home.asp[/url] [b]Arizon[/b] - No Restrictions [b]Alabama[/b] - No restrictions [b]California[/b] - limited to 10 rounds [b]Colorado[/b] - No restrictions. - city and county of Denver prohibits magazines that exceed 20 rounds in capacity [b]Connecticut[/b]] - No Restrictions. [b]Delaware[/b] - no restrictions. [b]Florida[/b] - no restrictions [b]Georgia[/b] - no restrictions [b]Hawaii[/b] - no sales of high caps [b]Idaho[/b]- No restrictions at all [b]Illinois[/b] - no restrictions [b]Indiana[/b] - no restrictions [b]Iowa[/b] - no restrictions [b]Kentucky[/b] - No restrictions. [b]Louisiana[/b] - No restrictions [b]Maine[/b] - No Restrictions [b]Maryland[/b] - No ownership restrictions, but transfers of magazines over 20 rounds prohibited. You can leave state, buy them, and bring them back. You cannot, however, have them delivered via mail, etc. [b]Massachusetts[/b] - Only holders of a "Class A High Capacity" LTC are allowed to own, buy, transport or transfer high capacity firearms and/or loading devices (magazines). [b]Michigan[/b] - no restrictions [b]Missouri[/b] - no restrictions [b]New Jersey[/b] - High caps allowed. Up to 15 rounds, that is. Temporary blocking to 15 is allowed by court decision. [b]New York state[/b] - no restrictions [b]New York City[/b] - no hi-caps allowed and you need a "permit" to possess even a long gun.... [b]Ohio[/b] - Hi-cap allowed. Only goofy law is a magazine-firearm loaded over 30+1 is considered an automatic weapon [b]Oklahoma[/b] - No restrictions. [b]Pennsylvania[/b] - no restricions. [b]Rhode Island[/b] - No restrictions [b]South Carolina[/b] - No restrictions [b]Tennessee[/b] - No restrictions [b]Texas[/b] - no restriction [b]Virginia[/b] - No restrictions [b]Washington[/b]- no restrictions

I've looked at the NRA site but can't find anything on high capacity magazines. If someone could post a link to it I would appreciate it.

You can add Hawaii to the list also. BTW, CA allows grandfathered mags, if you had them before you can keep them, if not, you have to make do with 10 rounders.

I can help a little - Pennsylvania - no restricions. Maryland - No ownership restrictions, but transfers of magazines over 20 rounds prohibited. You can leave state, buy them, and bring them back. You cannot, however, have them delivered via mail, etc. Delaware - no restrictions.

Indiana, no restrictions.

No restrictions in Colorado... If CA allows grandfathered mags how can they prove you didn't own em before if you "accidently" buy some in NV and "accidently" bring them home with you? Sounds like a pretty unenforcable law to me!

Can someone provide me with a link to the Maryland law? That's the state that prompted this quest to understand the laws. I've searched the State of Marylands site and the internet and can find nothing to support it. But the state did show up on one of the lists that I saw.

Colorado state law has no restrictions, but the city and county of Denver prohibits magazines that exceed 20 rounds in capacity. Jay Arizona

No restrictions in South Carolina...

Hi-cap allowed. Only goofy law is a magazine-firearm loaded over 30+1 is considered an automatic weapon, unless mag is loaded into a NFA firearm (MG or SBR). So my homemade 50 round AR mag I made in '89 is legal here, same for my 32 round UZI mags.

Louisiana allows High cap. and the Honey Island Range allows Class III as well. Bill

Noo Joisey. High caps allowed. Up to 15 rounds, that is. Temporary blocking to 15 is allowed by court decision.

I don't think there are any restrictions here in Az., at least none of which I've heard.

None here in Maine..... BTW - Germany allows ownership of all high capacity magazines - you're just not supposed to have a semiauto capable of taking the magazines in the same place. i.e. don't get caught with an SL-6, SL-7, or SL-8 and a bunch of 30 rounds mags on hand.

The hi-cap mag sniffing dogs will find them when they check your papers at the border. If you wrap the mags in marijuana, that will usually trick the dogs.

Aren't we denied full auto/ select fire as well? From the NRA site for MO: NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT FIREARMS It is unlawful to knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair or sell a machine gun. "Machine gun" means "any firearm that is capable of firing more than one shot automatically, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger." Which is rather unfortunate... no concealed carry, no silencers, and no mach guns. Darn St. Louis and KC! Viper Out

No restrictions in Kentucky.

in ny tou can own any pre ban mag. however they have adopted a more "permanent" version of the fed law, this doesnt sunset. so if the ban lapses in other states, it wont do a damn bit of good here. still doesn't stop me.

No restrictions on mags in Illinois. No NFA stuff though (SBR, Class 3, silencers). Av. Edited to say: don't know about Chicago or some of the other towns close to the city. There are 4 towns that do not allow any handguns within city limits. I think there are even 1 or 2 that are "gun free".
