FACT OR FICTION: During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun control earlier this week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) claimed that it’s “legal to hunt humans” with large capacity magazines. Is this fact or fiction?
Times Up – It is a FACT!
Senator Feinstein said, “The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds,” she said.
“And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”
It is normally at this point that I would analyze the comments, highlighting some seemingly significant point or two. Hum. In this case, I think it is best to let the Senator’s words speak for themselves.
