More stupidity from our esteemed VP Joe "Bite Me" Biden....

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/...rough-the-door/

"In the same Field and Stream interview, Biden also said that anyone who needs a “clip” (actually a magazine) with 30 rounds in it is a “danger” to themselves.

“If you can’t get the bear or deer in four or five shots, you’ve got a problem,” he said."

Good. So let's ban them for LE too.

“If you can’t get the bear or deer in four or five shots, you’ve got a problem,” he said."
I wasn't aware of any defense of ownership of 5+ round magazines on the basis of necessity in a hunting context.

He's making a point that doesn't exist but very shrewdly dividing elements of the "hunting community" from the gun-rights-advocate community, painting in the minds of the public that firearms should be reserved in this context for hunting- which is not a right.

Example, imagine some strange disease decimated the deer herd and bear population in PA and they banned sport hunting for deer/bear (gasp!). Well then, nobody would have any "need" for a centerfire rifle at all for sport-hunting. And in states like NJ that outlaw centerfire rifles for deer hunting altogether (and large parts of PA and MD as well)- nobody has a "need" to own a centerfire rifle at all in a hunting context.

Biden should be honest and admit that not everyone in America who enjoys hunting has access to (or is interested in) elite clubs and caged hunts where "gentlemen" use shotguns while paid guides use dogs to flush out stocked birds...
