According to Firearm Chronicles
For some reason, anti-gunners seem to find it troubling if a firearm can carry “too many” rounds. I put that in quotes because, well, that number is completely arbitrary and varies from person to person to some degree. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago that Oregon sought to limit round capacity to just five shots.
Anyway, they think that too many rounds somehow turns a firearm from an effective tool for self-defense into a murder-death-kill device, so they love to ban magazines they deem “high-capacity.”
Of course, these bans get challenged and are sometimes overturned.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen in Colorado.
The Colorado Supreme Court on Monday affirmed the state’s ban on large-capacity gun magazines, finding the law does not violate the state constitution.
The court unanimously upheld the ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, saying it is a “reasonable exercise of the police power that has neither the purpose nor effect of nullifying the right to bear arms in self-defense.”
The court ruled that the ban does not violate residents’ rights to self-defense because large-capacity gun magazines are not needed for self-defense.
Apparently, the court hasn’t been paying any damn attention to what the hell has been going on in the last month or so.
The truth is, such magazines aren’t just useful for self-defense, they can be downright vital. Mobs are showing up in various places, burning down buildings they think are involved in criminal activity. We’ve seen an untold number of riots, watched videos of people being severely beaten by these mobs.
