The office of Carolyn McCarthy, a Democratic congresswoman from New York, confirmed to me today that she will present a bill on Tuesday aiming to
limit public purchasing of multi-round ammunition clips of the sort used in the Tucson shooting. Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey will introduce
the legislation in the Senate.
One question I have not heard asked is,
If this legislation gets pushed thru, which it will,
what are those people who already own high capacity magazines supposed to do?
From what I have been led to believe thus far, if this legislation gets any legs it will not be like the Clinton ban in 94 where there were
grandfather clauses for ARs and high capacity mags. ?
Are they supposed to just throw them away? Will there be a check point where we can turn them in?
A "Cash for Clips" program?
If anyone has any thoughts on this please join in. I find it hard to believe that those with high capacity mags will just willingly turn them over
which makes me wonder if it is completly out of the question for the Feds to begin demanding lists from firearms dealers of all people who have
purchased HCM in the past, say, 5 yrs. and then.......door to door "Visits".
edit on 12-1-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
The term "high capacity magazine" is subjective...at best. What is considered a high cap mag? For which caliber? For which weapon? Tossing out
subjective crap...as CONgress does so well is really a waste of both theirs and our time.
I'm sure I own quite a few mags that would be considered "high capacity". Will I turn them over? No. I own a number of different weapons and
each requires a different magazine. Some dingbat in the District of Criminals who wishes to relegate any of them as "illegal" is nothing more than
an employee trying to tell the employer what to do.
My magazines are nothing more than a piece of metal with a spring and follower that feeds whichever weapon it is engaged in. The magazines have
NOTHING to do with what I am capable of since I can drop a standard mag and reload before you finish reading this sentence.
I will sleep well tonight regardless of the BS crap coming out of DC. LOL...then again, there is a gun show in town this weekend so maybe it's time
to stock up for what lies ahead?
about your clips, nan you would not have to "give them to the govt" lol.
But rebuying more high clip ( more then 15 bullet ) it would be impossible or illegal.
and in 15 yrs maybe it would be impossible to find it even on the black market ( due to compagny stop making them ).
and the 1 second of reloading can save live, so it's better then a 33 clips.
Unless you want to kill many people 33clips size in dumb. You dont go hunt duck with a glock ! xD ( you do it with a shot gun for spread bullet )
Or goes hunting Moose ( a good sniper rifle hunting will be more effective ).
Even you dont need to protect yourself with 33 bullet, unless you got in a shooting scene like in the movie where during 5min your are shooting at
each other lol...
But in reality, if you defend yourself with a gun, you will now shoot more then 10 bullet. Unless you miss all your shot OR you really want to kill
the other guy... Like 20 bullet in his body.
BUT, for attacking people, 33 is GREAT !!! Defense ? nop. ( unless you are in a gun fight xD, but why would you be in that ? lol )
