House Democrats plan to introduce a bill that will ban the production of high capacity ammunition magazines on the first day of the next congressional session, January 3rd, 2013. Though the bill has few, if any, Republican co-sponsors, Wisconsin’s Tom Petri (R-Fond du Lac) has already signaled that he might be in favor of such legislation. Petri to the fdlreporter:
“One thing that might be helpful, which I have supported in the past, is to limit the size of the (ammunition) clip,” Petri said.
Apparently none of Petri’s NRA member/constituents have expressed outrage at his failure to distinguish between ammunition magazines and clips.
