Law and Order Star Vincent D'Onofrio Lends Name to Gun Control Campaign

Vincent D'Onofrio, the lantern-jawed star of NBC's "Law and Order: Criminal Intent," is lending his name to the campaign to ban "large capacity magazines" of the kind used in the Tucson, Ariz. slaying of six people, including a federal judge, and the wounding of 13 others, including a congresswoman.

D'Onofrio filmed an ad for the Citizens Crime Commission, which you googly-eyed gun control backers can watch here.

A shame that no one familiar with guns vetted that ad.

The first gun shown has a 7 round magazine. A far cry from anything "high capacity".

The second does have a magazine which probably holds more than 10 rounds. Of course, it's on the hip of a cop. Cops use large capacity magazines precisely because they're useful for self defense. It's also hard to claim that police are "outgunned" when they have the same equipment (often better) as the bad guys.

The third contains shells and links from a machine-gun. Machine-guns are already virtually banned - so a ban on "high-capacity" magazines would be pointless. I'm guessing that the picture was taken in Iraq.

Mr. D'Onofrio - you're lending your name to a cause that simply makes criminals out of ordinary people. It doesn't stop crime. It doesn't influence criminals. It's "feel good" legislation.


"I'm not only a psychotic in real life but, I play one on TV as well."

Recent and past history proves beyond any doubt of even the most deeply psychotic that NO law ever written by god or man has stopped criminals from obtaining any and all weapons they wanted but, law enforcement and especially the agenda driven mainslime media refuses to point that out. Shun these idiots who are helping the murderers slaughter more victims with these treasonous laws as soon we will rightfully be prosecuting them as co-conspirators before the act.
