Limit capacity of bullet clips

Published 19/12/2012

A ban on assault weapons is not an answer to this violence. The problem is not semi-automatic weapons, but the size and capacity of clips used for those weapons.

We should limit capacity to five-round clips. The form of a military style rifle is not going to save lives. Banning clips with more than five rounds will.
