Yes. This isnít perfect, but no compromise is.
No. I donít mind some compromise, but this still takes away too much.
No. We should never compromise our gun rights.
No. This still gives too many gun ownership privileges.
I can hit a target 400 yards away with my eyes closed.
Of course it is not acceptable. After all, the Second Amendment very clearly says
It is the undeniable right of every American nut job to have any freakin' firearm of any power made possible by technology for their use as long as they can get their hands on it and the peoples government and common sense be damned.
Its right there in the right wing Constitution.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Especially since NYS police routinely carry 17 round handgun magazines and 30 round rifle magazines
seems to me honest people can debate whether us civilians can own military issued weapons that can be deployed by an individual soldier but are not individually issued such as SAMS or LAWS but its hard to argue that civilian defensive police weapons are outside the scope of the second

"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
