U.S. Representative Ted Deutch: Why The Feds Should Ban ‘High Capacity’ Magazines

“Combined with bump fire stocks, high-capacity magazines allowed the Las Vegas shooter to kill 58 concertgoers in a matter of minutes,” Democratic Florida Congressional Representative Ted Deutch writes at miamiherald.com. “But the massive scale of violence extends so much further. High-capacity magazines make killers capable of firing dozens of bullets before reloading. In the recordings captured […]

The Pre-Hillary Gun Sales Surge for Dummies

Three variables greatly influence American gun sales: elections, legislation, and mass shootings. The last factor is obvious enough; people don’t want to get shot by a sociopath. The first and second are confusing to those on the left. They really don’t understand why people arm up when an anti-gun politician has a chance of being elected, or gun control legislation […]
