Courty says they are easy to get and always in stock.
As far as the restriction goes, he is not sure how law enforcement will impliment the potentinal changes.
He says restricting manufacturers may be the best option.
"I don't think it's going to do a single solitary thing to curve gun violence in the county, I can say if they do away with these stocks its going to be a very minor thing," Courty said.
He says people will still have guns.
They just won't be able to fire as many rounds as rapidly.
