"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." - John Adams
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Sorry, but had the asualt weapon ban been continued, the shooter would not have been able to obtain the extended ammo clip. If he did not have that clip, he would have done less than half the damage he did. There is no rational reason for those clips to exist. It is reasonable to restrict them. Even Dick Cheney agrees with that.
We all believe in gun control, we just disagree about where the control line should be drawn.
cocaine is banned for how many decades and this country is full of it
if there is no rational reason for such magazines to exist why do so many police departments have such magazines in various weapons/
the problem with you gun banners is you want to ban a 30 round magazine today-a 20 round magazine tomorrow and a 10 round magazine next week
ANYTHING CIVILIAN POLICE DEPARTMENTS USE HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO BE USEFUL FOR CIVILIANS TO USE IN SELF DEFENSE
THUS OTHER CIVILIANS OUGHT TO HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE THINGS
The White House should support Rep. Carolyn McCarthy’s bill outlawing the sale or transfer of clips that hold more than ten rounds, even those obtained before the law takes effect. It's the very least we can do in the face of the Tucson Massacre.
“Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001
the most common police sidearms use 15-18 round magazines--that means many government units have determined that is the appropriate number of rounds for civilian employees to use for self defense
of course the emotobabblers think that punishing millions of people is OK because ITS DOING SOMETHING
what if thousands wont-let me guess you want to throw them in prison which would then justify them killing those who tried? I mean if you want to ruin someone's life for owning a 15 dollar 15 round magazine I certainly believe they would have the moral right to retaliate
