Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) recently told a group of sheriffs that if he and his staff had known ahead of time how much "commotion" a ban on high-capacity magazines would cause, "we probably would have thought about it twice." The Democrat blamed a staff member for making a "commitment" on his behalf that all but forced him to sign the ban, and he said that he never actually expected the measure to pass the state legislature. Hickenlooper also said that after "all the kerfuffle," he went back and got "some facts that we should have had at the beginning."Apparently death and destruction is not a valid reason.
Nobody and I mean nobody has explained to me why apart from a mass killing spree would you ever need a high capacity magazine in civilian life.
He would have rethought because it is hard? It caused a kerfuffle? Oh the horror, was it a mass kerfuffle?
The victims and their families have it easy?
I ask again what facts justify massive magazines, is there a constitutional right to kill in the most efficient way possible?
If hunters require a magazine with 20 rounds, either they must be pretty poor shots, or the wildlife attacks on mass and they must be able to defend themselves from hundreds of angry rabbits.
Surely good men with guns in the carnage must be hoping that the bad man must pause to reload, but no, apparently he who has the largest magazine wins? Nuts.
The only reason for a high-capacity magazine is to kill en masse, and killing en masse has been all to prevalent in our public places. Any tiny baby step to try an resolve this mass murder results in a kerfuffle and causes politicians to run for cover.
It's just plain crazy.
