On September 13, 2020, presidential candidate Joe Biden called for a “ban [on] assault weapons and high-capacity magazines” following the ambush attack on two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies.
Perhaps Mr. Biden should be reminded:
- California already has these bans in place
- The shooter did not fire more than the arbitrary number of shots to make a “high capacity” magazine a factor
- The shooter used a pistol, not a so-called assault weapon
Throughout 2020 citizens have been voting on this issue with their dollars and sense (pun intended). Guns sales are unprecedented and ammo is almost worth its weight in gold.
