While I was growing up, there were two relatives who were never around during the Christmas holidays. They were always hundreds of miles away, hunting deer, elk, bears, whatever.

I remember seeing their guns. High-powered, bolt-action rifles. Take a shot, manually chamber the next round and take another shot.

I don't ever remember seeing a high-capacity magazine or clip. I do remember seeing a lot of mounted game.

People who are in hysterics because the high-capacity magazines they need for "hunting" may be banned are not gun nuts.

They're wimps.
