Magazine Capacity Limitations

---------------------------

For our more in-depth article on this topic click here: Why Magazine Capacity Restrictions Don't Work

States shown in RED have existing bans on magazine capacities. Hawaii's ban is on handguns only and while Virginia doesn't have a ban they do only allow residents to purchase firearms that have a capacity of more than 20 rounds. Also, while the state of Illinois doesn't have a state wide ban, one county and several cities have local bans.
