Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) appeared on CBS’s 'Face The Nation' on Sunday and spoke out against "semi-automatics and those large magazines" (video below).

Sen. Hutchison is normally a strong NRA supporter, reports ThinkProgress.org.

Sen. Hutchison said: “You know, I think we ought to be looking at where the real danger is, like those large clips, I think that does need to be looked at. It’s the semi-automatics and those large magazines that can be fired off very quickly. You do have to pull the trigger each time, but it’s very quick.”

However, the NRA claims the solution is to placed armed guards in schools across America, censor Hollywood and get tough on crime.
