Propaganda from the Las Vegas Sun and Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo supporting magazine bans...
Via Las Vegas Sun:
Don’t believe us? Fine, then listen to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.
“I’m a very avid hunter, I was in the military myself, and there’s no need to have a high-capacity magazine for any practical reason,” Lombardo said during a recent interview with the Sun.
To the contrary, the dangers posed by such magazines are obvious. Lombardo says the time it takes for suspects to change magazines gives potential victims an opportunity to escape and law enforcement officials an opportunity to safely fire back. That being the case, the fewer times a shooter has to switch out magazines, the fewer the chances for people to get away and authorities to get a protected shot.
It’s also not uncommon for guns to jam during magazine change-outs, Lombardo says.
That being the case, a ban on sales makes sense.
