    Further restrictions on "assault weapons"; limiting the capacity of magazines to 7 rounds, down from the current 10....are you kidding me! This type of legislation will have absolutely no practical effect on crime in our State. If passed, the legislators supporting the bill will all go home and pat themselves on the back for a job well done. Those of us that support the 2nd Amendment will take particular note and vote accordingly. Pathetic.
