Liberals propose arbitrary capacity magazine ban in Senate
Via Sebastian at Shall Not Be Questioned:
The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.
This is of course in response to the Auoroa, Colorado shooter’s actions. I’m sure a ban on a randomly chosen size of magazines would have be heeded by a man who, last I heard, made his own tear gas and explosives.
“Maybe we could come together on guns if each side gave some,” Schumer said.
Each side giving some? Okay Senator, which of my civil rights are you going to give me back in exchange for infringing on this one? What’s that? “None,” you say? That’s what I thought, you petty tyrant.
He suggested that Democrats make it clear that their goal is not to repeal the Second Amendment.
“The basic complaint is that the Chuck Schumers of the world want to take away your guns,” Schumer said of the argument made by gun lobbies. “I think it would be smart for those of us who want rational gun control to make it know that that’s not true at all.”
If you like your guns you can keep your guns, so long as you don’t put any bullets in them.
He also said average Americans don’t need an assault weapon to go hunting or protect themselves.
