Here is an example of how poorly worded this legislation is. Jon Caldera, who used to be anti-firearm, made a video showing why his Glock magazines would be outlawed under the legislation.

Here is an article on how the author of the legislation did not know how her poorly worded legislation would ban nearly every magazine in Colorado.

Colorado’s magazine-limit bill further reaching than opponents imagined

Colorado Democratic Rep. Rhonda Fields, whose bill to ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds ignited an ongoing firestorm of protest and which could cost the state jobs if a manufacturer of such equipment makes good on its promise to move to another state, didn’t realize that her bill would outlaw practically every magazine currently for sale in the state.

That’s because the bill specifies that magazines that can be “readily converted” to hold more than 15 bullets will also be outlawed.
