  •  What about an enhancement penalty (0+ / 0-)

    if in the commissiion of a felony crime, you possess and/or use a high capacity magazine  an extra mandatory 5 years (not paroleable) gets added to your sentence...which would usually be  life or longer.

    That way possession isn't criminalized, criminal useage is.
       Of course, that could be applied to silencers and automatic weapons as well..but later for that please...

    SW, you're asking and hoping a bunch of gov't workers do the right thing, the focus should be on the criminality, in your case, (and good luck with that, brother) you have a really nasty problem: one approach invites criminal dangerous behaviour on your part, the other invites active intelligent caring professional behaviour by gov't workers unknown or related to you...and obviously the bad guys then know who filed a complaint, so they are more motivated than they were before.

    Or inaction.....besides this diary.

    Good luck.

    Responsible people leave neither loaded guns nor paranoid, eliminationist ideologies laying around for the mentally ill to play with.
