Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazines
High-capacity magazines allow firearms to be discharged repeatedly without reloading. This increases the potential for them to harm more people very quickly. An assault weapon refers to a semi-automatic, military-style firearm with high muzzle velocity and rapid rate of fire. Together, high-capacity magazines and assault weapons increase the lethality of gun violence. We support legislation prohibiting the sale and transfer of high-capacity magazines and assault weapons.
