Understanding Rhode Island's Criminalization of a High-Capacity Magazines
Navigating the complex world of firearm regulations can be daunting, but it's essential to understand your rights. Recently, Rhode Island passed a law making it a felony offense to possess a high-capacity magazine. Because many of these same magazines were originally legally purchased, it is crucial to understand what the ban on high-capacity magazine laws entail. In Rhode Island, like many other states, there are restrictions on the possession, sale, and use of high-capacity magazines. Our law prohibits the possession, sale or transfer of any feeding device capable of holding, or readily able to be extended to hold, more than 10 rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously into a semi-automatic firearm. Being well-informed about the specifics of these regulations is key to ensuring compliance and preserving your rights.
