The antis are going to have a field day with this one. So what? Civilian disarmament advocates thought it was a great idea to limit New York state’s legal gun owners to seven rounds. [Note: legal gun owners. Criminals ain’t got time for that.] Gun control advocates see mag limits as a shining path to total disarmament. They can’t – and won’t – get their heads around the stark simplicity of the Second Amendment’s “shall not be infringed” mandate. In short, they will damn Magpul’s new, easy-to-clean, we-can’t-wait-to test-its-reliability PMag D60 60-round mag. They’ll shake their proverbial fists and wave the metaphorical bloody shirt, using the . . .
Gabriel Giffords shooting as proof of the “high capacity” magazine’s inherent evil. As if reloading is a mass shooter’s achilles heel. Or, indeed, that mass shootings are America’s major problem. Or that armed defenders could use this mag to stop the bad guys. Or, most importantly, that you can stop the signal.
Anyway, I’m sure Magpul gets a kick out of producing this 60-rounder after leaving Colorado. The Rocky Mountain State’s ban on “high capacity” magazines inspired the vet-led company to up-and-move their corporate HQ to The Lone Star State. Just down the road from TTAG’s heavily fortified bunker, in fact. I think we’ll pay them a visit . . .
