Does he really believe this?

This being San Francisco, the police department is pretty hostile to the Second Amendment too. Police Chief Greg Suhr said his officers are coming across large capacity magazines “more than I even want to think about.” He believes that getting rid of the magazines will decrease the City’s crime.
Like there's some sort of correlation between the size of a magazine and the propensity to commit crime. I think that San Fransisco has definitely earned anything with its name in it to be placed properly in the Off Topic and Humor section. :rolleyes:

And so they drive to the next town over and buy ammo, if they can find it... Another law that does nothing

Yes, really. So do they consider a BG who can bring down his target with one shot LESS dangerous than one that needs multiple shots?

Banning high capacity magazines = less crime?

How about: less criminals = less crime.

Whatever, it's San Francisco. Let's see how their experiment works out.

Supervisor Malia Cohen has proposed an ordinance banning any firearms that have large capacity magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds. Cohen's proposed ordinance would also require firearms dealers in the City to report every single ammo sale, no matter how small, to the police.
Great. Bob buys two boxes of 9mm JHP. So does John, Lisa, Tina and George. Then, Jimmy Felon buys two boxes himself. Next night, there's an armed robbery and one dead citizen. Exactly how does police knowledge of these six sales and the other ~8000 sales of ammo this past month help lead them to anyone, let alone filtering them out from the ~8000 the prior month, and the month before that? How does it help them catch anyone using a .357mag revolver? How does it help them catch anyone picking up their own brass after a murder? And how does this zealotry help ensure upstanding citizens aren't mistakenly walloped by these heavy-handed tactics when assumption=accusation=guilt?

At some point, one or more of these hirelings is going to have to explain that one to us. I just don't get it.

I'd also like to know if Cohen thinks that Cohen is a pioneer in the stripping CA of 2A rights with the mag capacity ban ordinance. Where has this bozo been? Must be another Bay Area mental midget in training.

A flip side to this would be if San Fransisco keeps its bans, (to no avail in solving anything) and the better parts of the state be allowed to be more realistic. I really wish that the meaningless gun laws already imposed on CA residents, mostly coming from the larger cities, would be left as ordinances in those cities. That way they can leave the rest of us out here in the open country alone. :mad:

I know that when I have more ammo in MY magazines, I like to shoot EVERYTHING. :danceban:


Not really, but someone had to say it, right? :wink:

If they are claiming elimination of 11+ round magazines will reduce violent crime, it would be interesting to find how many documented cases of 11+ round slayings their have been in the city to justify such a leap of logic, and whether the first 10rds failed to have any effect in those slayings. Somehow, I doubt there are many at all. Thus, next to none of the shootings within the city limits will be impacted in the least, resulting in only the upstanding being impacted as they'll be the only ones who give darn about such new prohibitions. And this is what they call "crime" reduction? :blink:

I'd love to see, just once, the above questions asked and answered by these dolts...

Although, I think there was a video of one of the brilliant Federal senators or Representatives actually answering the questions on UBCs saying that the criminals would suddenly start registering... or that they wouldn't be able to buy because of UBCs or some such unintelligible drivel... He actually seemed to think that making a law would stop criminal activity.

There are FBI statistics (need to find them again) that say most gun related crimes use three or fewer shots

I'd say the real purpose of this bill is to put gun shops out of business. It will probably reduce local ammo sales, reducing dealer profit and local tax revenues. Some dealers might be put out of business by that reduced profit.

If I were a gun store, I would start to sell ammunition by the round. Then I would simply report several thousand transactions a day to the police just to see how they handle that volume.

I can't stand anti-gun politicians.

That's an interesting idea. If I were a software company that ran POS systems for such shops, I'd offer an update that allowed the reporting aspect to occur electronically, allowing the owner of the system to specify whether they wanted the records submitted on a per-round, separate basis. Tens of millions of records a day. Sounds like a great feature to help thwart these idjets.
