Shotgun impact

Starting with the new law:
http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/TOB/S/201...160-R00-SB.htm
Sec. 23. (NEW) (Effective from passage) (a) As used in this section and section 24 of this act:

(1) "Large capacity magazine" means any firearm magazine, belt, drum, feed strip or similar device that has the capacity of, or can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten rounds of ammunition, but does not include: (A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accommodate more than ten rounds of ammunition, (B) a .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device, (C) a tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action firearm, or (D) a magazine that is permanently inoperable;
It seems as quite a few shotguns will fall under the "Large capacity magazine" restriction. This is due to the "or can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten rounds" and the availablity of short rounds and/or mag tube extenders. Example http://www.brownells.com/magazines/s...57-111484.aspx

This will stop alot of common shotguns from being sold in CT and bump up the number of registered "Large capacity magazine".

How does the Heller "common use" help in killing the "large capacity magazine" part of the law?
