Dick Cheney: 'Maybe It's Appropriate' To Limit Gun Magazine Size (VIDEO)

Former Vice President Dick Cheney, a stalwart Second Amendment rights activist and notorious hunter, appeared to open the door to some form of future gun-control legislation in a recent interview with NBC News.

In the wake of the tragedy in Tucson, Ariz., NBC's Jamie Gangel asked Cheney how he felt about a new push aimed at firearm restrictions, which have run the gamut from a bill prohibiting them near legislators to an effort to ban high-capacity magazines. Cheney, a longtime friend of the National Rifle Association, perhaps surprisingly seemed at least somewhat receptive to the latter.

"I'd certainly be willing to listen to ideas. I have always been a gun advocate, obviously had a strong voting record on behalf of the Second Amendment. That's just what I believe, and whether or not there's some measure there in terms of limiting the size of the magazine that you can buy to go with semi-automatic weapons -- we've had that in place before," the former vice president said, referring to the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. "Maybe it's appropriate to reestablish that kind of thing, but I think you do have to be careful, obviously."

High-capacity magazines were allowed back onto the market when the ban was allowed to sunset in 2004, after being signed into law by President Bill Clinton as a 10-year measure.
