I am looking for a little help on the topic of the new magazine restrictions Colorado will have going into effect on July 1, 2013. I bought a gun this past week and had to pay the $10 background fee and while at the local gun stores I talked to the guys behind the counters and to no surprise got two differing answers on the new laws.
My line of questioning basically revolved around 2 questions.
Question 1: If I buy a new Glock on July 2nd and it comes with a 13rd magazine am I allowed to take it home?
Answer 1: No, you can't take it home, since the magazine has a removable base plate it breaks the new law that will go into effect and we will have to send the magazine to CBI and they have to destroy it. In fact, any magazine with a removable base plate will be illegal under the new law. Hell, if you disassemble a magazine with a removable base plate and reassemble it, you have technically broken the law and have a "newly manufactured" high capacity magazine...
Answer 2: Yes, you can take it home, a judge here in Colorado ruled that if the magazine is under 15 rounds, just because it has a removable magazine base plate does not mean it falls into the ban, the magazine has to be manufactured to hold more than 15 rounds from the factory
Question 2: If I buy a new FsN can I take the gun home and leave the magazines?
Answer 1: Yes you can take the gun home, but we have to send the magazines to CBI to be destroyed. Also we have to notify the CBI and ATF that you purchased a gun that can accept a magazine over 15 rounds...
Answer 2: <Didn't ask the guy>
Last item of conversation was that guy 1 told me that starting on July 1, 2013 there will be an injunction in place that will nullify the new magazine restriction. He insinuated that the lawsuit that the Colorado Sheriffs, NRA, and other organizations filed will file the injunction.
Can anybody confirm what is actually going to be law with mags less than 15rds?
