Why a high-capacity magazine ban is pointless.

- Wiccapundit

Leftist gun-grabbers and mindless politicians like Diane Feinstein like to claim that banning high-capacity magazines will prevent atrocities like the Newtown shooting, because it decreases the shooter’s ability to fire many rounds in a short period of time.

In point of fact, that’s not true.  Here is a video of Jerry Miculek, setting a world record by firing twelve shots on target in under 3 seconds, from a 6-shot revolver with a manual reload!    That’s a cyclic rate of 240 rounds per minute, which is nearly half as fast as the cyclic rate of the Maxim gun (the world’s first self-powered machine gun) at 500 rounds per minute.  He can do this firing at 6 human-size silhouette targets, hitting all 6 with two bullets each.

Magazines? He don’t need no steenkin’ magazines!

  1. Well, you and I both know the ban has nothing to do with safety of The Greater Good™.

    It has to do with power, and the aquisition of it.

  2. [...] was actually the closing line from wiccapundit’s article about all this “high (full/standard) capacity” magazine bull… the .gov is trying on again. So I carry 3×10 insted of 2×15 round magazines. Revolver? [...]

    The line from the bumper sticker is truth. It’s not about guns, it’s about control. Fine. I’ve got a knife that will get me a full auto M-4/M-16 from somebody that doesn’t need it anymore. Any gun control law written since 1791 is unconstitutional.
