All the states are a mixed bag of good and bad gun laws. A mag ban thats not a ban was recently passed here in WA state. It only says no further manufacture, sales or transfers of high cap mags after July 1.
Current ownership is grandfathered. In effect what they did was tell everyone to go out and buy up all the high cap mags before 7-1, which many obliged putting many more of them into private hands than before the ban was passed. Seems a bit counterproductive for their desires. There is no possession ban, fines or jail time.
In short the ban is a joke, though no further sales will be allowed.

On the other hand with concealed carry, WA is a "shall issue" state. Only thing you need do is pay the fee and pass the background check. Good for 5 years.
After those restrictions are in place, what stops anyone from going over the border and buying 50 Normal capacity mags with cash and saying they had them for years already?

Rhode Island citizens are fighting back against some of these draconian laws that were just passed. Watch the below video:

New Lawsuit Challenges Magazine Limitations! - YouTube

And Delaware citizens may have to do the same soon. Some citizen gun restrictions are sitting on the Delaware Governor's desk waiting to be signed I heard. One of them is a magazine ban on magazines that hold more than seventeen rounds.

Well..look at Chicago and Detroit - you would think they will go after those criminals shooting up their corner of the city. So long as it is fairly kept on that side- nothing to see here. The cops just go around there to chalk up the lines. And repeat the process....day after day after day.

These gun grabbing laws are for the law-abiding. Not felons.

Most gun owners in RI will not comply, they will just keep the “standard capacity“ mags at home. Duncan vs Bonta the magazine ban is still at SCOTUS. It will either be ruled on, sent back to the lower court for ruling on using the single step “strict scrutiny“ standard. I think it is called a GVR, and or a 28j letter. L8899#
PS RI will not be able to “confiscate” at best, they can hope for is that shooters will just keep them at home.
