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.”

Hunting ducks is legal. Hunting humans with ANY caliber weapon, ANY number of rounds, is already ILLEGAL. It is ILLEGAL to hunt humans with even a single round. It is called "murder".


Quoting Ms.KitKat:

 "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 I agree what is legal?

Re: "target shooting for fun and sport" it all depends whether or not the targets are 20 children sitting in their classroom plus 6 adults. or how many was it in the movie theater? they were sitting ducks too. or the time before that? IDK- there are just too many sitting ducks lately.

It's time humans have equality with the ducks! Humans deserve to have federal and state protections equal to the ducks.

 

Quoting Carpy:

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.

 You are missing my point.

If duck hunters are limited to 3 rounds under federal and state laws, then one who purchases a gun NOT for the purpose of duck hunting- they get to have upwards of 150 rounds. Who then presumably will these gun owners use their guns on. It's not for hunting. It's to kill an {human} intruder.

So, why do ducks have more protection over humans.

 agreed.

and therefore, guns for non-hunting purposes should also be limited to 3 rounds.

If  legal duck hunting is limited to 3 rounds, it makes perfect sense for illegal human hunting  to be limited to at least 3 rounds as well. Equality for ducks and humans.

 Ahhh,then if you agree it is illegal to hunt humans,then you can't shoot intruders with your big guns (shoot to kill) as I have been saying all along. You don't need to buy and possess military style weapons to use on humans. And I think this is what Ms Feinstein said in a round about way too. People are way too free with their 2nd amendment rights in order to justify shooting people on the basis that they "might" be a threat.

 She was being sarcastic....the bottom line is that gun owners don't hesitate to shoot to kill , humans. Those who own several, military style weapons as part of their "collection" are potential human hunters. And they kill dozens at schools, theaters, etc.

I don't know why this is so hard for you guys to understand? I have lost faith in the abilities of most of you people to use critical thinking and instead you jump to conclusions.

There is nothing wrong with what she said other than how she worded 'legal to hunt humans...'

are you saying that law enforcement wouldn't take that oppurtunity to take the person down?

I notice you cut off the examples she gave where that ECACT thing happened including when Gabby Giffords was shot...
