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!
