House Amendment 2 to Senate Bill 6
151st General Assembly (Present)
This amendment seeks to simplify Senate Bill 6 by making changes to the definition of “large-capacity magazine” and criminalizing more harshly those persons who use a large-capacity magazine during the commission of a crime. This amendment creates the crime of possession of a large-capacity magazine during the commission of a felony which is class B felony with a penalty from 2-25 years in jail. For purposes of possession of a large-capacity magazine during the commission of a felony, “large-capacity magazine” is defined as an after-market magazine which increases the designed capacity of the standard magazine manufactured and sold by the manufacturer of the firearm in which it is used. This amendment also adds the crime of selling, purchasing, receiving, or transferring a large-capacity magazine, and makes the offense a class E felony. The definition of large-capacity magazine for selling, purchasing, receiving, or transferring a large capacity magazine is any magazine that exceeds 20 rounds of ammunition for a handgun and 30 rounds for a long gun.
