Bill Clinton Calls Opponents of Gun Control Nuts

In a speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, former President Bill Clinton veered away from exalting the virtue of mobile technology and engaged in the hotly-debated issue of gun control, calling the availability of high-capacity gun magazines "nuts."

"I grew up in the hunting culture, but this is nuts. Why does anybody need a 30 round clip for a gun?, the former President said to a group of mostly tech nerds "Why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets?"

"Half of all mass killings in the United States have occurred since the assault weapons ban expired in 2005. Half, in all of the history of the country," Clinton said. "So, I hope that former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and other people who stepped up after the Newtown tragedy will have some impact on this."
