    Correct. There is a woeful misunderstanding of what Executive Orders are.

    I find the funny thing about the OP is the line “Just a note, this would have been called “conspiracy theory” just a year ago.” while seeming to wade nipple deep in “conspiracy theory”.

    I am curious, what issues do you see raised with no [easily] detachable magazine, magazine (or revolver chamber) limit of 8 − 10 rounds?** What about no semi-automatics above pistol-size (roughly speaking)?

    Aside from the obvious of how to deal with the existing firearms in circulation.

    EDIT: **Obviously no speed-loader clips.

    An assault weapon is a select-fire firearm using a moderate caliber round.

    She thinks paintball is somehow equal to real combat and that firing toys that shoot paint is somehow like firing a real gun.So what ever she says should be taken with a grain of salt.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I have found that there is a huge amount of ignorance, among the general population, concerning guns. That is really the biggest problem we have. People are ignorant, and are happy in their ignorance.

    Right, it should be called the Civil Rebellion instead of a war...but you would have to had an education to understand that.


    Now, had Jefferson attempted unilaterally to abridge the Constitutional rights of the American Citizenry, yeah you would have a point on the claim that he was a hypocrite on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems that you're just quoting a blog without understanding it.
    Unlike you I fully understand what I quoted and it wasn't a blog, it was a law signed by Jefferson to squelch insurrections such as the one you and others are proposing. Jefferson had the support of public opinion on his side as will any president who has to put down a few extremists. So it might behoove you to remember that Timothy McVeigh is no hero.
