Re: “More madness: ledge's gun bills

"That includes bans on ... big clips"

Mr. Dumas, you should not be paid to write on a topic that you are unfamiliar with.

Brad according to a former DEA agent Richard Horn the US led 'War on Drugs' (as if such a thing can be won) is a pretense under which the United States exerts economic, political and military supremacy in many parts of the world. He realized this after his work led him up against CIA operations in Burma which ended his career.

Speaking of, Mr. Dumascan we expect gun control to work as well as our decades old 'War on Drugs' Mr. Dumas? Maybe you report on the next Wakarusa Festival and let me know. I suppose you oppose state level cannabis legalization efforts also. It does contradict omniscient federal power, after all.

Brad, I will also assume by 'military assault weapons' you refer to long rifles with a full-auto feature. Lewis and Clark carried semi-auto rifles so I would hope you wouldn't desire to ban such a dated technology. These full auto-rifles are rare and prohibitively expensive ($15k according to MachineGunPriceGuide.com, before 2013). They take special ATF licenses which are expensive and prohibitive in and of themselves. If by 'military assault weapon' you are saying that a semi-auto AR 15 variant rifle that can be found at Wal-Mart with a certain number of 'more lethal' features is somehow unusually dangerous you're incorrect, especially in the case of the typical scenario you are trying to prevent.

Realistically in the majority of these indoor shooting scenarios a long rifle is a disadvantage. The weapon is not notably more lethal statistically and is more readily grabbed in a close quarters situation. Also, the most basic practice and proficiency in speed reloading techniques makes magazine size limits completely irrelevant. A cursory search on youtube would reveal this requires less coordination than your coffee maker.
