  •  If you purchased land - (4+ / 0-)

    with the assumption that the State will eventually widen the 2 lane road, yet you like the house anyway?

    Does the State say:  "Tough shit, you knew, or should have known there was an industrial park, new High School, and 80 home development before the planning board over the past 5 years.  You lack of due diligence means we can take 50 feet of lawn without compensation.
    Oh, and you're now in violation of the property set-backs as defined in the Zoning Ordinance of 1999.  Here's your fine.
    Move the house on your dime or vacate by June 1."

    Perhaps Tom's incorrect on the State providing equal capacity (170 rounds in his example).  It should however, provide a 1-to-1 swap, and cite "overarching concerns" for not providing the additional 70 rounds of magazine capacity.

    What I suspect is the goal of making new magazines nearly impossible to purchase, available at an inflated cost, while ordering contraband existing magazines as "implements of terrorism".
    As we can't contain our Nation sufficiently to prevent tons of drugs and thousands of people transiting the borders, how will a US-ban on high capacity magazines be effectively enforced?

    Pa Kettle and his 15 inch barreled Winchester Trapper Carbine wasn't filling the streets of Chicago with blood, but it was ordered contraband by the National Firearms Act of 1934.  An Act which was successful in silencing the liquor gangster guns - not by it's text, nor by the case law of US v. Miller - but by having the blessing of timing.
    Prohibition ended in December of '33, removing the cause of gangster violence.   The NFA '34 passed nearly a half year later, long after the Tommy-guns fell silent.
    Thus hailed as a great victory for the forces of gun control.

    Only, it didn't do squat, compared to ending Prohibition.

    The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.” ~ Joseph Heller, Catch-22
