A little confused on the magazine ban....say you have 20 round pre ban magazines, are these also illegal to own as I might have missed something regarding them. This is just a hypothetical question as the law mentions 30 round magazines

Bans possession of any “high-capacity magazines” regardless of when they were made or sold. The maximum capacity for a detachable magazine is reduced from ten rounds to seven. Magazines owned before passage of the SAFE Act able to hold seven to ten rounds can be possessed, but cannot be loaded with more than seven rounds. .22 caliber tubular magazines are exempt from this limit. Previously legal “pre-1994-ban” magazines with a capacity of 30 rounds are not exempt, and must be sold within one year to an out-of-state resident or turned into local authorities. The magazine limit takes effect April 15, 2013.

The law doesn't say 30 rounds, it says any magazine with a capacity greater than 10. You have until next year to get rid of your 20 rd mags by turning in, blocking permanently to ten, (seven after 4/15/13), selling out of state or to a dealer.

If a permanent modification, yes you can keep it.

keep it all.............and we all have to stand our ground on this.....I did not fight for my country to get treated like a piece of crap by the tyrants that are trying to ruin what I and my brothers in arms laid down their lives for. I'm not a radical by any means nor do I intend to become one, but enough is enough....this crap makes me sick, that our government has come to this and our citizens cannot see what is happening
