These videos show that magazine bans will do nothing to keep people safe and only burden the Innocent.
As night follows day, the Liberty Grabber Left has hit upon the best political exploitation of the recent shooting in Virginia Beach. There were no reports of the mass murderer using an undefined ‘Military style’ or ‘Assault weapon’ in the crime and the guns appear to have been purchased legally. Thus Liberty Control Leftists can’t flog the AR-15 horse or clamor for Intergalactic Background Checks. No word on how Gun confiscation SWATing [or so-called ‘Red Flag’] laws could have miraculously ‘solved’ the problem, ushering in a ‘gun free’ Utopia in the process.
Seeing that the Socialist-Left has an incessant need to cynically use every ‘serious crisis’ that comes along in depriving the people of their Rights – one step at a time – they have one Liberty control card they can play, the ‘High capacity’ magazine ploy the old standby. In this case, they’ve set up the narrative to kill three birds with one stone – go after the common sense human right of self-defense as well as attacking the GOP as subservient to the NRA. As opined in the Washington Post: In January, Virginia GOP killed bill to ban sales of large-capacity magazines.
Never mind that like the ‘Military style’ or ‘Assault weapon’, the term ‘high capacity’ is never defined, lest they are held to specific number. This is because the Left loves the idea of Incrementalism. In the case of magazine size, they can start by defining more than 30 rounds as ‘high capacity’, if they get an unconstitutional ban of over 10 rounds codified in law. They merely have to wait a little to declare that 10 rounds are ‘high capacity’ reducing the allowable limit on your rights to 5 rounds or even one.
In light of this, we present two videos that show that magazine changes can be made quickly enough in a second or two, rendering these kind of bans to be worthless. The first video from 2009 shows that there is less than a two second difference in changing out the magazine.
The second from 2013 shows that it only takes several seconds to change a magazine even with an inexperienced shooter while also visibly demonstrating that it would be impossible to tackle a shooter in this time frame
Liberty Grabber Leftists seem to live in a fantasy world where a tweak here or a new law, there will soon usher in their promised ‘Gun Free’ Utopia, even though that’s never happened anywhere. They somehow don’t understand that it only takes seconds to change out a magazine, even less with a little practice. They also don’t seem to understand the concept of the tactical magazine change, where the swap is made at any point, before there are no more rounds and the slide locks back indicating this condition.
Or it could mean they do understand this, it this is all a ploy to once again restrict our God-given right to self-defence. They don’t seem to care that many more lives are saved by guns than are lost. Or that these magazine bans are just one more step to their final solution to the Liberty problem.
