bite the bullet

from the LA Times

City lawmakers voted unanimously to ban the possession of firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said he was eager to sign the L.A. measure, which passed 12-0 with three council members absent.

At the Tuesday hearing, the CalGuns Shooting Sports Assn. also raised concerns. “I don’t think it’s going to have any effect on gun violence,” said the association’s director, Chad Cheung, pointing out that people in neighboring cities such as Burbank or Glendale could still possess the magazines.

“Bad people are going to do bad things, and they’ll do it regardless of whatever laws are in place,” Cheung said.

The new ordinance gives Angelenos who own such magazines 60 days to remove, surrender or legally sell or transfer them after it goes into effect. Breaking the law would be a misdemeanor. "

Banning gun magazines which can hold over 10 bullets. Too many bullets in a gun; is this what the L.A. City Council thinks is the most important issue facing residents of Los Angeles??? What about creating jobs, poverty, unaffordable housing, lousy schools, and the worst traffic congestion in the nation? The number of bullets in a gun is more important??? The Los Angeles City Council, and the Mayor, are spending taxpayer time and money passing laws restricting the number of bullets in a gun?
