And now, predictably, Sen. Frank Loutenberg is planning on introducing legislation geared toward banning *High Capacity Magazines*. Dancing in the blood of those who died in Aurora, gleeful that there was yet another event with which to push his statist agenda.
Problem with his argument is that the *high capacity magazine* jammed, and the rifle stopped functioning.
So how, you ask, did this guy wound 71, and kill 12, if he didn’t have use of his *high capacity magazine*? Simple…he had the laws of physics on his side…point-blank range, people packed close together. Take one shot, that bullet will travel through at least two people, and lodge itself in a third.
Plus, his first firearm was a Remington shotgun….one pull of the trigger, and about 12 to 14 lead pellets spray out the end. The Remington holds 7 rounds in the tube, and one in the chamber, for a total of 8 shots, each shot containing 12 to 14 lead balls. You do the math, and figure out how many folk were hit if even only half those lead balls found a target?
But the Liberal Blood Dance is to be expected…they can’t make their arguments on anything other than visceral emotional reaction in a knee-jerk fashion.
