From The Blaze:
“The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”
Let’s start at the top. “The time has come” is the kind of soaring romantic dictatorial rhetoric that appeals to the “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” nonsense. “The time has come” is the kind of gibberish that masquerades as prophetic.
The Migratory Bird Act and such are regulations that limit hunting ducks with more than 3 rounds.
This is all absurd, and entirely irrelevant. I’ll let Dr. Suzanna Hupp explain:
Feinstein’s reload argument is foolish. She doesn’t mean it, because she, like the rest of the leftists, wants to ban all guns. This is just some random dude on youtube who’s practiced a bit:
Dr. Suzanna Hupp, if you skip back in the other video a while, notes that it doesn’t take long to drop one magazine and put in a new one. Defenseless people can’t protect themselves. The murderer at Virginia Tech used a Walther P22 as one of his weapons of choice – which only comes with a 10 round magazine.
Saving the stupidest Feinstein remark for last:
it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines
