i was at my local gun shop and was talking to the owner and he told me that the hi cap ban expired...is this true? he said u still can buy anything stamped LE, but it isnt illegal to own out of country new production mags anymore

He is wrong

No!, he was wrong. It goes in front of President Bush to be re-signed and we all hope he doesn't.

That piece of shit will end up in jail next to you if you listen to him. If it were over, why would they still be marking the mags FOR LEO USE ONLY?

he wasnt saying it was legal to purchase le mags...but lets use for example the british mags...they are new production, but they arnt illegal because they r not manufactured in the us...i was in canada(im in MI so i go there often) i was at a shop looking at some par ordinace pistols and they come with a 15 and 10 rnd mag...and he and a local dteroit officer i know said it would be legal to bring them here, even though they were new, they ae not stamped..they also said the par is going to start making beta c mags for the english and isreali gov, which wont be stamped...sorry for the long winded story....but it comes from the gun hop owner saying the hi cap and assault rifle ban were seperate enities, with the hi cap expired and the asssault ban up in september....still not sure...just what i heard. thanks

Absolutely [b]NOT![/b] You may not import magazines into the country without federal approval. While it is certainly possible to buy magazines outside the country and bring them in, it is not advisable.

No, not true. The ban does NOT go up for re-signing. It EXPIRES on September 14, 2004, and that's the end of it. If it were to be re-authorized, it would have to go through both Houses of Congress just like any OTHER new law. And there isn't even a bill on the floor to try to do that yet, in EITHER house, and such a bill would probably be tabled (shitcanned) the moment some jackass tries to introduce it. "Bill introduced by Mr. Shitbag read twice and referred to the sanitation and recycling department." Bush can't sign any reauthorization of it unless it passes in both the House AND the Senate FIRST, and there's almost NO chance it'd make it through the House, and not much chance it'd make it through the Senate.

You can buy the orlites and the Brit mags and AK mags because an importer has proven to the federal government that they were manufactured prior to the ban in 94 and has obtained all needed import approvals.
