So New York State is getting close to passing a new gun control law in which they are going to limit magazines to seven rounds. They already had laws limiting magazines to ten rounds, but apparently some super genius there was like, “I know the problem with gun violence: three too many rounds!”
This is just profoundly stupid. I mean, really, what’s three less rounds a magazine supposed to accomplish? And since it should be trivially easy to get higher capacity magazines from out of state and I doubt anyone ready to murder people with a gun is going to worry about having an illegal magazine, this is a law that will exclusively affect law abiding gun owners, perhaps making criminals out of many people who were never going to harm anyone. And if for some magic reason it did get criminals to have magazines with only seven rounds in it — this helps me how? The mugger can only shoot me seven times?
Anyone who votes for this law should be immediately be committed as they obviously do not have the mental capacity of an adult. In fact, were I president, I would send in the National Guard to apprehend all of New York’s legislature and its governor and send them to a mental health facility for their own protection. And then I’d tell New York to try governing itself for a year before electing any more officials to help them get perspective. We have to crack down on stupid people wielding power if we want this nation to survive. And we won’t have have justice until most of the politicians out there trying to wield power they shouldn’t have are locked up and given constant psych evaluations.
