Re: “High-Capacity Magazines Flood Oakland

Please do not call 7.62X39 or .223 "heavy-caliber." 7.62X39 is about half as powerful as a medium caliber rifle such as 30.06. A .223 round is a weaker version of the 5.56 which is one of the smallest center-fire cartridges around (about 1/3 as powerful as most medium caliber rifles). It's like saying that a Corolla is an "Ultra-High Performance" car.

Because of your general attempt to sound neutral on the issue, I am going to assume that your phrasing is indicative of your inexperience with firearms and not an attempt to sensationalize your reporting.

Also, please do not call them clips. Clips are clips, they clip the bullets together, like a paper clip holds papers together (I have never seen anything larger than a 10-round clip). Magazines hold bullets in a container, like a paper magazine binds and holds papers for easy reading. The cover of a paper magazine encloses the pages like a gun magazine encloses the bullets.
