L.A. Council Votes To Make Criminals Safer

posted on July 30, 2015

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to ban possession, by law-abiding citizens, of ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. 

“People who are civilians, people who want to defend their homes, people who want to defend their families don’t need a hundred-round drum magazine and an automatic weapon to do it,” said Councilman Paul Krekorian, who pushed the effort. In truth, the statute does much more than ban these often cited but seldom seen 100-round drum magazines (we won’t even start on the “automatic weapon” lie). It also bans ownership—by law-abiding citizens, only—of many standard-capacity magazines that normally hold 12 rounds, 15 rounds, etc.

Of course, it’s unlikely that you’ll see long lines of violent criminals waiting at the L.A. Police Department to turn in their magazines anytime soon. They’ll simply keep theirs, happy to know they will now be better armed than lawful citizens they intend to prey upon.
