    We are all in a militia, hence the need to be armed.

    A militia (pron.: /mɨˈlɪʃə/),[1] generally refers to an army or other fighting force that is composed of non-professional fighters; citizens of a nation or subjects of a state or government that can be called upon to enter a combat situation, as opposed to a professional force of regular soldiers or, historically, members of the fighting nobility.

    Wasting your time. But, add on to the term "regulated." Which at the time is reference to "regular." Which roughly translate trained. The founders wanted the populace to be skilled in firearm use.

    Perhaps the "right of the people to peaceably assemble" really meant that you were free to put stuff together with no one bothering you .

    Seems like a good law to me and a common sense law, but i know im gonna get attacked for saying that from the right. Oh well
    In Aurora, Colorado, it's illegal to carry a gun in public. So, yeah, more laws is exactly what we need...if you want to deprive people of their constitutional rights, that is.

    You don't even know what a militia is. Do you?

    The problem with limiting magazine size is that the next loony tunes mass murderer will kill many with a semi-auto pistol and 7 round magazines.

    What do you suppose will happen then?

    Another "reasonable compromise". These people will not stop until we are all serfs.

    I get the feeling this will backfire on Colorado.

    Several companies including Magpul have noted their unwillingness to do business in the state if/when this gets signed. That will have an impact on the economy of the state. I also see this decraeasing the hunting and shooting sports activities that take place in Colorado, which will affect their tourism industry as well. Their LEOs will now be subject to the restrictions of the gun industry companies which are refusing to do business with certain states. I especially wonder how this may affect the USAF Academy Shooting Sports and Combat Arms Teams, which I know from personal experience do business with several of those companies.

    Once you allow the Government to infringe on any of our inherent rights, you set
    a precedence that could allow them to infringe on all of them.
    If a $10 background tax is necessary for a background check to own a firearm,
    Why not a $10 tax for a background tax for the right to vote?
    Limits on the types of weapons you can own, or magazine capacity,
    How about limits on the size or types of words covered by the freedom speech?
    It is less about guns, than about our charter document (Constitution), that set aside
    a list of inalienable rights.
    These rights were placed outside the Governments legislative scope for a reason.
    To casually discount one, you casually discount all of them.

    You do realize the USSC ruled that governments have the right to regulate firearms...
