Man, my fellow MAhole Matt DeVito from Down Range Firearms Training is at it again. This time he's put out a helpful Public Service Announcement that our "friends" in the media would do well to heed. He - and I - just wants to help... Without any further delay, here's Matt and the Truth About High Capacity Assault Clips:
Heh. Evil, "super killie" clips. Matt hammers home the point that what goes into a semi-automatic firearm is very rarely a "clip" but a magazine, using many different types of clips to that effect. Words mean things, and when those things are up for consideration for a permanent ban, it is absolutely critical that they are applied correctly.
We saw during the ban how the anti-freedom folks twisted things. They banned rifles by name; manufacturers responded by changing the name and selling legal rifles, and this was called "exploiting a loophole." The ban covered cosmetic features that didn't change the function of the rifle any, just the aesthetics and the ergonomics. So those items were removed or made less useful, and the left called it "exploiting a loophole." Only in the land of those that truly hate freedom would be complying with an unjust law be called "exploiting a loophole."
This time, we're looking at an even more draconian ban. Most semi-automatic rifles are affected, even relics like the WWII-issue M1 carbine. The collector's item Browning Hi-Power that I spent years chasing? Well, I would have to surrender the original magazine, made in 1935 along with the Hi-Power, simply because it has a 13 round capacity. Think about that for a second. That magazine is nearly 80 years old, but because it holds some arbitrary number, I would be forced to get rid of it - a collector's item - with no remuneration.
And the people foisting this ban on us can't tell us a barrette from jumper cables - think about that.
That is all.
