Going to register a Mini 14 in the city and will probably get some John Masen 10 rounders that will hold 12 with a Ruger floorplate.

Correct. More than 12 is "assault ammunition."

Chicago banned my buddies fully automatic rubber band gun - unfortunatley, the authorities said that it put an eye out when some gangbanger accidentially shot himself in the face

- it was all over the news -

"Gangbanger accidentally puts own eye out with 100 rubber bands from fully automatic rubber band gun - mother calls for statewide ban"

"Major delay jumps on bandwagon says magazine capacity too high and forces ordinance through yes man alderman"

"Blaba-boy attempts coup says one eye is one too many and names ban after own arse!"


But I heard from reading other boards that chico can ban anything they want to including your mini.

You cannot register anything with a detachable magazine in the city.
The bastards even banned SKS-type rifles.

I don't think that's true unless someone can show me an ordnance that prohibits detachable magazines. The Chicago rifle situation is pretty much a CA type situation, except you can have two more rounds then they can.

Here's the ordnance
