Re "Poll: Utahns overwhelmingly support gun background checks" (Tribune, March 7):
According to a recent poll, 82 percent of Utahns back universal background checks on firearms, but a majority oppose limits on high-capacity magazines that hold many rounds of ammunition. How wonderful!
How many of those opposing magazine limits go duck hunting? When hunting for ducks or other waterfowl, hunters are required by law to have plugs in the shotgun magazine that limits them to only a couple shots at a time. Now, it seems that many of these same people want to reject ammo limits on high-capacity rifle and handguns.
Are they serious? When did ducks become more important than children and other humans? Give me a break!
