    Never mind, here: A magazine is something you put ammunition into, then put the magazine into the gun. They are reused potentially thousands of times.

    Bans typically apply to guns or their related hardware, irrespective of whether they are loaded or not.

    So even empty it would be a problem.

    Depending on the law, you could perhaps partially disassemble it by taking the follower and spring out of it, leave them somewhere else, and be ok. Just depends on how the law is written.

      A built in magazine is different .

      •  well, really, most of 'em are different (0+ / 0-)

        in some way or other. On my SKS, you can hit a catch and swing the built-in magazine down to unload it all at once. Not that that's unique, I suppose, but at the moment I couldn't say what other built-in magazines work that way.

        As far as David Gregory's case is concerned, I'm guessing that if he had a weapon with a large non-removable magazine he'd be in more hot water. I don't know of any weapons with built-ins large than 10 rounds off hand.

        Not sure what other differences might make a difference. All magazines are loadable and unloadable...
