According to the Sacramento Bee newspaper" 

"Sweeping new gun laws passed last year by California voters and legislators require those with magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition to get rid of them by July 1.

The question is: How many of California’s 6 million-plus gun owners are actually going to comply, even though violators face potential jail time if they’re caught?"

I carry an unlimited amount of ammo, but I need time to recharge to fire again.

Why do they call them "rounds"? Is this the politically correct version of bullets?

Round is another word for the modern cartridge system; a bullet is the projectile that exits the barrel.  No politics.

eta: Also, and this is slightly pedantic, they're banning magazines w/greater than 10 rounds, not clips

We here in Massachusetts have the same ban, except they haven't tried to take items already purchased legally.

From the article:

Sometimes incorrectly called “clips,” magazines are the part inserted into a gun that holds ammunition and can be quickly popped in and out for rapid reloading.

  Years ago Washington DC's basketball team was called the Bullets. Then the "politically correct" movement started and seeing how the name was associated with inner city gun violence, the name was changed to Wizards. Yea, that worked.

  They picked Washington Wizards because Washington Capitals was already taken, and Washington Corrupt A-Holes would've been just as bad as Bullets.

It is interesting that here in CT they banned large magazines a few years ago but if before the ban you owned magazines that hold more than 10 rounds you could register them.
But if you use them you're not supposed to load more than 10 rounds even if they will hold more

Actually that's technically legal in Florida. Even with the 30 round mag.

If you use an AR it needs to be a 5 round magazine.

And wild hogs can be taken with a daisy bb gun.

The law can be strange.

Injunction time. For now. The 9th circus will probably reverse.
