As Sebastian TBFKASIH clearly states, there is nothing about these laws that have anything to do w/ crime control or reducing murders. It has to do w/ hate. Hate of firearms, firearm owners and anyone who dares to oppose them.
Nathan Haddad, a decorated veteran w/ no criminal record, is facing 7 years under 5 felony counts ,classified as violent felonies, for possessing 5 30 rnd AR mags.
7 years in prison and listed as a violent felon for having 5 magazines.
This is the same 'crime' that DC prosecutors failed to pursue when David Gregory, a news pundit, did the same thing.
They are trying to create an elite class in the US and firearm owners will be at the bottom of the rung, treated as criminals and sexual predators w/ no presumption of innocence in the courts and registration systems so they know where you are at all times.
Think I'm exaggerating? Take a look at the comments on the FB pages of places like the Brady Campaign, CSGV or on Huffpo gun related articles. It's not the rare exception of supporters calling for confiscation, imprisonment and attacks against you.
They hate you and everything you stand for. It has nothing to do w/ crime.
