Ignorance to the highest degree, on so many levels.
First the term "Clips" is absolutely incorrect and shows ignorance. A "clip", a shortened term for "stripper clip", is a small strip of metal
used to hold a number of rounds of ammunition. The rounds are fed from the clip into the internal magazine of the firearm 5 to 10 rounds at once, to
shorten reload time. The terms "clip" and "magazine" are NOT interchangeable. They are two distinctly different pieces of hardware.
Second, although this is a tragedy it shows the level of self-centeredness of our government politicians, so now they spend millions on new
legislation for high capacity magazines? If a lunatic wants to buy high capacity Mags he'll do so with or without a ban.
Our country is going broke from over spending and these self-centered politicians are thinking only of themselves, prime example right here.
We're not sure about unemployment reform, healthcare reform, jobs going over seas, but let's introduce a multi-million dollar bill for high capacity
magazines ASAP, and pass it.
And I am sure this will happen on many state levels now too, what a waste of tax payers money only putting us into further debt and ignoring the real
Why doesn't the media do a story on how much it will take to introduce new legislation for "Knee-Jerk Gun Control", then add that to the total
amount of the US deficit?
Attention to all Politicians and Media, we have 1000's upon 1000's of laws in place now, and they are not being enforced, and even if we add more
Laws aren't broken by reasonable and sane people they are broken by criminals who lack reason, judgment, mental faculties, and compassion, these
types of people do not care about the law.
Ban on Large Gun
WASHINGTON — A US Senator announced Monday he would soon present legislation to ban high-capacity ammunition clips after a gunman used one in an
attempted assassination of a US lawmaker over the weekend.
"The only reason to have 33 bullets loaded in a handgun is to kill a lot of people very quickly. These high-capacity clips simply should not be on
the market," Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg said in a statement.
Lautenberg said high-capacity ammunition "clips" holding more than 10 rounds at a time were banned under the Federal Assault Weapons Ban that the US
Congress enacted in 1994 but did not renew in 2004.
