HIFICO’s position: STRONGLY OPPOSE
- Violates the Second Amendment.
- Reduces the efficiency of the militia.
- Some firearms don’t have low capacity magazine options.
- Some magazines can not be modified.
- fixes a problem that does not exist.
- Grandfathering denies later generations the right to bear arms.
- No method to replace magazines that may break.
- current lawsuits may mute the law resulting in a financial loss for the state
