From his Politico bio: "San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón has worked in law enforcement nearly his entire career, most recently as San Francisco’s police chief. Before that, he served as police chief in Mesa, Ariz., and as assistant chief of police in Los Angeles."
America’s district attorneys, its police chiefs, sheriffs and law enforcement officials should immediately and loudly voice their support for the large-capacity magazine ban.Large magazines serve no useful purpose in civilian life except to extend shootouts, magnify carnage and suffering and put the lives of law enforcement officers and civilians at risk.
And the banning of them will serve no purpose except to start a civil war.
There are probably in excess of one hundred million of these greater-then-ten-round mags in the lawful possession of firearm owners today. Take the ones manufactured for just the M-1 Carbine, both 15 and 30 rounders. There were more than 6 million M1 Carbines made between August 1941 and June 1945. I don't have a number of how many magazines of both types were made for these 6 million carbines by the US government in the time frame of 1942 to the Vietnam War when the carbine was finally taken out of service but the number has got to be at least a factor of twenty times 6 million. Even allowing for those expended in wartime and shipped overseas were talking many, many magazines, not counting the after-market ones built since then. I don't know a carbine owner that doesn't have at least ten mags of both types.
Then there's greater-than-ten rounders for semi-auto pistols and all manner of rifles. Just how does this stupid Only One think that he is going to get them all in the face of armed resistance?
