Micheal Shear and Jennifer Steinhauer of the NY Times write about Obama's latest vision for gun control and drops this crumb for the amusement of gun pedants:
Lawmakers and other officials said that the president could use a public event as soon as Wednesday to signal his intention to engage in the biggest Congressional fight over guns in nearly two decades, focusing on the heightened background checks and including efforts to ban assault weapons and their high-capacity clips.
No, that is not the feared "high magazine clip". , nor is it the Times bug-a-boo, "high capacity ammunition". However, although we know what they meant, "clip" and "magazine" are not interchangeable (a lessson I had beaten into me a few weeks back.)
And let's be fair to the Times - they were trying to translate Obama's press conference back into recognizable English:
...we can do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who shouldn’t have them...
Good to know the President is studying this issue and hearing from all sides. Is it too much to ask to expect the President to know what he is banning before he bans it?
