Re: Gun Control is Completely Useless.Jan 12th, 2007
Isn't that model 870 the short barrel type in stainless steel?
If it's the shotgun I'm thinking of...that's a great little canon!
I don't think handgun magazines are restricted weapons......unless they have a capacity of over 10 rounds, in which case they are prohibited weapons........
Want to talk about "it doesn't make sense.......it is gov't policy" consider the Beretta 92 series. Say you own a Model 92 with 10 round magazines..........say you also own a CX Storm..........which is a semi-auto centre-fire rifle that takes the same magazines........take the 10 rd mag out of your 92, it has no restriction. Put it in the rifle, the magazine magically becomes a prohibited weapon, the simple possesssion of which can get you 10 years in the Iron Bar Palace.
These people have serious issues.
Especially, as an IPSC shooter, you know how long it takes to change mags in a semi-auto pistol. What, two or three seconds from the last round fired in an exhausted mag to the first fired from a fresh mag? So how does a 10 rd restriction help? I don't know.
