New Study Shows 1 Billion Firearm Magazines Are in Circulation

On April 12, 2024, the National Foundation for Gun Rights (the National Association for Gun Rights’ legal arm) announced a critical piece of evidence that demonstrates the blatant unconstitutionality of the Colorado state government’s magazine prohibition. 

NFGR’s lawsuit Gates v. Polis has the goal of overturning the magazine ban. 

The National Shooting Sports Foundation published a study on April 12  revealing that firearm magazines of over 10 rounds in capacity have widespread usage nationwide. On top of that, the study demonstrates that there are close to a billion magazines in circulation, with 74% having the capacity to hold 11 rounds or higher. Close to 46% of the magazines in circulation are capable of holding 30 rounds or higher.
