Lapse of Federal Law Allows Sale of Large Ammo Clips

High capacity ammo clips became widely available for sale when Congress failed to renew a law that banned assault weapons.

Web sites now advertise overnight UPS delivery of the clips, which carry up to 40 rounds for both semi-automatic rifles, including 9mm pistols, and handguns.

“High capacity magazines read extreme firepower and gusto. Stock Up!” is the headline of one of many gun shop Web sites.

Virginia law enforcement officials have not identified the weapon used in the shootings today at Virginia Tech, but gun experts say the number of shots fired indicate, at the very least, that the gunman had large quantities of ammunition.

“When you have a weapon that can shoot off 20, 30 rounds very quickly, you’re going to have a lot more injuries,” said Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

What a complete, and utter crock! The person who wielding the weapon is responsible, NOT the gun, or the ammo. As one commenter responded:

The real and obvious problem here is that VA Tech is one of those ridiculous “Gun Free” zones; hence, no one there was legally permitted to defend themselves. Contrast this situation with the one that occurred in Salt Lake City, where a Bosnian suffering from SJS was cut down by a bystander who was carrying his sidearm.

“Gun free zones” are nothing more than something to make the implementers ‘feel good’.
