I prefer a high capacity magazine when hunting humans

Posted by   + Show Post

Seems Senator Feinstein thinks such a high capacity should be illegal when hunting humans.  Doesn't she realize that human can attack and hurt you if you don't have the firepower to take it down?


During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun control Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) shot down a proposed amendment to her “assault weapons” ban that would exempt military veterans from the gun ban. She also made some questionable claims.

Pushing a ban on high-capacity magazines, Feinstein argued that it is “legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Here’s her dubious rationale:

“The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”

During the same hearing, she also argued that a military veteran could be mentally ill and suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), therefore should be prevented from buying the semi-automatic weapons that would be banned in her bill.

The California Democrat also made the bizarre claim that the “advent of PTSD” is a “new phenomenon” and a “product of the Iraq war.”

Here’s exactly what she said in context: “The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”

Never let a crisis go to waste.  Isn'that the progressive motto?

Quoting Goodwoman614:



Quoting lga1965:

 

The shocking murder of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Conn., on Friday has sparked a national discussion on gun control, with mostly Democratic legislators saying laws need to be tightened.

President Bill Clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law in 1994, but the measure expired a decade later. Democrats have tried several times since then to renew the ban, without success.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/16/dianne-feinstein-assault-weapons-ban_n_2311477.html

Feinstein called for the ban to be renewed after the mass shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.

"Who needs these military-style assault weapons? Who needs an ammunition feeding device capable of holding 100 rounds?" Feinstein wrote on her campaign website. "These weapons are not for hunting deer -- they’re for hunting people

*************************

It is true that people who want these weapons aren't deer hunting, they are preparing to shoot intruders , burglars, with them and shoot to kill which I also see as "hunting humans". Many of you Moms at CM say that you want this type of weapon and that you will shoot to kill. That seems like "hunting humans" to me.

Make fun of her all you want but you are hypocritcal.

 And Ms Feinstein's comments were twisted and reworded by the Conservative site that you copied.

DING! DING! DING!

I can't believe anybody would take this OP's word for it - a post without source citation that can be verified.

Imagine my *not* surprise that the senaor's words were twisted and spun! 

Nooooo! 

Not by the same good loving decent person who f*cking bragged at making a killing off of selling guns and ammo after the Sandy Hook school massacre of 20 children.

Hunting humans should be illegal but the gun-nuts are salivating for the day when basic law and order breaks down so they can go kill indiscriminately. The people who are now screaming they need high powered rifles to protect themselves will be wholesale murdering people to take what they want if given half a chance.

 "We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. "

What many of you ladies fail to recognize: why are we so concerned about the duck and are limited to 3 rounds. But when it comes to personal gun ownership to shoot at a human being, we have no limits. In fact, the limit is up to how much the manufacturer can make " 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines"

Why do "we" care so damn much more about a damned duck we can only shoot them 3 rounds worth. But our children sitting in a school building who REALLY ARE "sitting ducks" 150 rounds are a-okay.

Do you agree, it is legal?  Hmmm.  And guess what, high capacity is nice to have when you are target shooting for fun and sport.
