Gabe Zimmerman's Fiancée Calls for Smaller Bullet Magazines

Posted By on Mon, Feb 7, 2011 at 11:31 AM

Kelly O'Brien, who was engaged to Gabe Zimmerman, appears on Good Morning America to say that the Arizona Legislature should limit the sale of high-capacity magazines for for guns:


Nearly one month after she lost her fiancé Gabe Zimmerman to a bullet in a Tucson, Ariz. parking lot Kelly O'Brien called on the Arizona state legislature to pass a bill that would reduce the amount of bullets in a magazine to 10.

“I absolutely support it...And it is so sad to see 19 people gunned down in just 15 seconds by one of these extended capacity clips," O'Brien said on "GMA."

I asked her if she thought passing that law would limit constitutional rights under the Second Amendment. But O’Brien compared it to free speech and yelling “fire” in a crowded theater, saying that “everything within reason should have limits.”

“As you know Jared was stopped when he ran out of bullets. And I believe, even if not Gabe, other people could have been saved that day,” O’Brien said. “And absolutely more people could have not had the injury and stuff that they had to sustain.”
