The Richmond, VA school board recently adopted a resolution that calls upon Congress to:
“ban the manufacture, sale, purchase, possession, and use of assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition cartridges, except those needed by the military and law enforcement.”
In all my decades of personal, military, peace officer, and private security officer experience, I have never encountered a “large-capacity ammunition cartridge.” I have no idea what it might be.
I asked Justin Mattingly, the reporter who wrote the story about the resolution adoption, if he could get clarification on that.
What’s your best guess what a “large-capacity ammunition cartridge” might be?
So far, we’ve got:
- .50 caliber cartridge
- A shoulder thing that goes up.
- A ten yard belt?
- Obviously another definition written by Jeff Sessions DOJ.
- call BATFE … they know it all [they just think everything is a machinegun -cb]
- 8″/55 (20.3 cm) Mark 71
- One holding more than 10 gallons?
- 155mm artillery round has capcity
- A high caliber ammunition drum clip?
- does not exist
- I vote M829A4 round for the M1 Abrams
- a “pancho villa” cartridge belt??
