“Nobody needs a 15-round ammunition magazine unless they are a domestic terrorist or a gangster”

Those are the words of Bryan Miller, executive director of Heeding God’s Call. God’s Call is a faith based organization that pushes for gun control. Those words were being spoken in regards to a proposed New Jersey gun law that will limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds in the Garden State. New Jersey already has some of the worst gun laws in the country, including limiting magazine capacity to 15 rounds.

According to NJ.com, that’s not all the anti-gunners in Connecticut are hoping to accomplish this year,

It’s those measures — in particular, a restriction on ammunition magazine size, a ban on .50-caliber rifles, stricter limits on children’s access to firearms and mandatory safety training for gun owners — that will be their focus in the coming year. “Our top priority is a 10-round limit on magazine size,” said Bryan Miller, executive director of Heeding God’s Call, a faith-based organization focused on preventing gun violence.

“Nobody needs a 15-round ammunition magazine unless they are a domestic terrorist or a gangster,” Miller said. “We expect the legislative leadership to get behind this and the governor to see some sense.”

In last year’s session, the magazine restriction never made it to the governor’s desk. Instead, it was the Senate and president Steve Sweeney who stood in its way. The state currently restricts clips to 15 rounds, a limit Sweeney described last year as “effective.”

I wonder if Miller’s comments apply to law enforcement and the military as well? After all, he said NO ONE needs a standard capacity magazine (and even a 15 round magazine isn’t standard for many firearms).
