Frosh Joins 18 AGs Supporting Vermont’s Ban On Large-Capacity Magazines

CBS Local Politics 0 month ago

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh has joined a group of 18 attorneys general supporting Vermont’s ban on large-capacity magazines.

Last year, Vermont put forth a ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition for long guns and 15 rounds for handguns. That prompted a lawsuit that will now head to the state’s supreme court.

In a brief filed with the court, Frosh and other attorneys general argue the ban “represents a policy choice that Vermont is
constitutionally free to adopt.”

The attorneys general say “reasonable restrictions on large-capacity magazines are fully compatible with the right to bear arms” and the Second Amendment.

Maryland and Washington, D.C. have put forth similar bans.
