The Law Restricting Capacity and Transfers of Gun Magazines Has Been Judged by the Citizens of Colorado.
Colorado passed a law effective July 1st, 2013 that forbid the sale or transfer of magazines capable of holding 15 or more cartridges. Colorado citizens circumvented the law by selling the magazines fully disassembled.
When the law was first signed, retailers simply sold normal-capacity magazines dissembled. The purchaser subsequently put the parts back together and went his merry way.
Now, citizens are openly selling full-capacity magazines. The citizens have reacted to a nonsensical law and have judged that law themselves.
The problem with stupid, intelligence-insulting "laws," passed by sleazy politicians who never even read them, is that the universal contempt they invariably generate eventually casts a pall of disrespect over the entire body of law!
When one law is disrespected (and should be), and is thus ignored (and should be) and thus largely unenforced (and should be), because even the authorities generally recognize it is stupid and unbeneficial to anyone, the societal glue that holds together our entire Civilization weakens.
When we can’t respect certain laws, we certainly can’t have any respect for politicians who passed them. Likewise, we can’t respect the electorate who put those politicians into office. Suddenly, our entire Civilization no longer deserves our respect!
