Senator Durbin wants to mandate 1-round limit on magazines

It seems most likely that Durbin said "mutli-round" in order to avoid being pinned down to any specific number. The intended implication was some nebulous "high" number (at most 11, but "preferably" lower). That way, if federal legislation imposing a (for example) seven-round limit is introduced, he can claim that's what he was for all along.

Then again, perhaps he is simply clueless about that which he presumes to regulate. As excuses go, though, that one would be pretty lame. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

A peaceable citizen with an AR-15 and two dozen twenty-round magazines is less likely to commit a crime than a mugger with a steak knife.

Sen. Durbin recycles the claim that the cops "who patrol our streets" want more anti-gun laws. Shortly after the Newtown tragedy, TimesDaily.com published an article (more like an editorial), "Police Know Urgency of Gun Control." "We should listen to what our law enforcement officers have to say," "The men and women who patrol our streets every day" support "greater restrictions on gun ownership." But every single "police officer" quoted in the article was a chief or commissioner (i.e., a political appointee in a desk job); not one was a working street cop. Meanwhile, the police-only website PoliceOne.com did a survey of real cops. Over 70% said that an "assault weapons" ban would have no effect on crime, and another 20% said that it would have a negative effect. 95% said that magazine capacity limits would not reduce crime. About 80% said that civilian gun ownership and concealed carry could deter crime, and over 70% were in favor of arming teachers and other school staff members, if they were properly trained and qualified.
