“What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them,” US Congresswoman Diana DeGette told a forum about gun control recently. “And so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”
Except, magazines aren’t bullets. Bullets are bullets. Magazines are re-usable pieces of hardware that help feed the bullets into the weapon.
The country is in the very best of hands.
