Gun control is so last week.
Now, Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, is proposing a totally different idea that will also infringe on your constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
He wants to limit the size of magazines on semi-automatic rifles.
Presumably, though, he does not want to limit the size of magazines on semi-automatic rifles that are used to protect politicians like himself.
Weird how that works, huh?
Oh, by the way: Kaine is on the shortlist (I call it the “shartlist”) to be Hillary
Rodham Clinton’s VP pick.
So if she picks him, there will be two openly anti-gun candidates on one presidential ticket.
I don’t think that’s going to play well in swing states.
Here’s what Kaine had to say on Meet the Depressed:
In an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator Chuck Todd asked, “Are you in favor of an assault-weapons ban?”
“I have voted for it,” Kaine said. “But I think there’s a better way to go at the problem and that is limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips.”
“So you think an AR-15 should be sold,” Todd asked.”You don’t think there should be any limitations?”
“I have voted for it and I would likely vote for it again,” Kaine replied, “But here’s a practical problem that I think you’re aware of. As soon as you define what an assault weapon is, you can’t sell a weapon and here’s how we describe it, gun manufacturers just make one adjustment or two and say see, this isn’t subject to the limitation. Whereas if you say you can’t sell an ammunition clip or a magazine with more than 10 or 12 rounds–”
“So you believe ammunition is the way to go,” Todd asked.
“I really think that’s probably the way to tackle the problem more effectively,” Kaine replied.
In the aftermath of Orlando, “the problem” can be defined as a registered Democrat who also happened to be a Muslim terrorist shooting a bunch of people at a gay nightclub.
Yeah. That problem will definitely be solved by limiting magazine size.
