We’re talking thousands of dollars.” She added, “It may get down to a point where we have to look at court action on behalf of our members, and that is something we will be looking at under advice from our lawyers.”

On April 1, the actual language of ban became public and revealed that pump shotguns accepting detachable magazines were also banned, as were pump shotguns with tubular magazines holding more than five rounds. Moreover, any magazines holding more than ten rounds were banned and certain gun parts became prohibited as well.  [full article]
