(CNSNews.com) – In arguing to limit  ammunition for guns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said, “it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Feinstein spoke about her bill to ban semi-automatic weapons during a Senate Judiciary Committee executive business meeting on Thursday. The legislation includes a ban on high-capacity magazines.

“The time has come America for us to step up and ban these weapons,” Feinstein said. “The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition-feeding devices – those that hold over 10 rounds.”

Feinstein appeared to be reading her remarks.

“We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds, and yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines,” she continued.

“Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, or a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down," said Feinstein.
