High Capacity Magazine Restriction

If you believe they help, you're ignorant.

This video accuratley shows the lack of logical thinking behind liberals claiming magazine restrictions can keep us safer.

Yeah, we know that NYC cops are terrible shots. Heck, recently they hit what was it... 9 bystanders in their failed attempt to hit a murderer?

David, I've never heard of a clip which held 30 rounds. The most I've seen is maybe 6. Do you maybe mean 'magazines'? Because those do come in larger capacity, esp. as the caliber decreases (smaller bullets). But as Terry points out, malfunctions are bad. And contrary to his experience, things like the Giffords assassination attempt show that higher-capacity magazines malfunction more often. That's how the crowd was able to jump him safely.

You obviously don't know anything about firearms, given your reference to "extended clips". Maybe you've had too many customers who thought they were men who also didn't know the difference, and you've made the connection between their failures. Besides, it's only the anti-rights people who connect firearms to sexual organ size. Looking at it rationally, if your premise were true, then no man would carry a 5-shot snubnose revolver. Heck, it wouldn't even have been invented.

Since only semiautos use magazines, of course the restriction would only apply to them. And yes, in some situations it's faster to get another gun than to reload. But I don't think I'd want to shoot with 2 hands at once unless it was a mob situation.

@ Lynne "Since only semiautos use magazines..." Plenty of bolt-action rifles, for example, use magazines.
