Under current Californian gun control laws, it’s illegal to sell or give away gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds. Owners of them were ‘grandfathered’ into being able to keep them when the law was passed. A new bill would have forced them to surrender or otherwise dispose of them by 2014. From the Daily Democrat:
SB396 by Democratic Sen. Loni Hancock of Berkeley was placed in the inactive file, a day after it failed to gain enough votes to pass the Assembly.
[ . . . ]
It was not immediately clear why SB396 could not muster a sufficient number of votes in the Assembly, but the move to shelve the legislation came the same week that two Democratic state lawmakers in Colorado were recalled by voters after supporting gun control legislation.
Probably just a coincidence. . . .
