High Capacity Lies

Quoting Politico
(on page 2 of this article):
“ ‘The ability to buy a weapon that fires hundreds of bullets in less than a minute’ is a problem, said [Illinois Rep. Mike] Quigley. ‘He [Jared Loughner] had an additional magazine capability. That’s not what a hunter needs. That’s not what someone needs to defend their home. That’s what you use to hunt people.’ ”
1) Loughner had a 30 round clip. HOW does that equate to “hundreds”?

2) Making it illegal to own a high capacity clip will NEVER prevent criminals from owning high capacity clips!

3) Obviously, Quigley has never lived in a gang infested neighborhood. Obviously, Quigley has never assisted the local police in attempting to bring justice to these extremely violent gang bangers. Anybody who does so lives in daily fear that 20 or more gang members will kick in their door and kill them. Anybody in that situation would be WELL ADVISED to own multiple VERY high capacity clips for the sake of defending their home.

And, those good Samaritans ought NOT sacrifice their right to choose how best to defend themselves for the sake of some idiotic feel good tyranny which has been proven time and time again to be not merely unproductive, but downright counter-productive.
