... "Even setting aside the numerous serious weaknesses in the argument that the Second Amendment protects only government-sanctioned miltias' right to keep and bear arms, the absurdity of the gun ban lobby's arguments becomes even more apparent when a state considers forming a well regulated militia, and we're told that this smacks of 'Insurrectionism'--always capitalized, as per the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) rules of grammar." ...

"From the anti-gun groupies the blame for the attack was guns, as if guns were responsible for creating the atmosphere that prompted wing nuts to use them rather than the culture that has developed in the US. This is not to say that there should not be rules for firearms, but the extremism of the anti-gun crowd does not lead to a workable solution. The pro-gun crowd, on the other hand, does no one any favours with the equally uncompromising and idiotic knee jerk response to responsible gun regulation." ...

Apparently no one wants dad wandering around dressed like the Duke. Undeterred, I began my quest for a lever action rifle.

"The idea that simply carrying a gun around will somehow decrease the possibility of a crime to occur is absurd. What evidence is there to think that a 'good citizen' — hiding a weapon — will decrease the possibility of an attack?" ...

"As a proponent of the Second Amendment and the Constitution, I believe everyone has the right to bear arms. We should give everyone a Glock at birth, teach them how to load a magazine clip by the age of 10 and let them loose on society. Everyone for themselves. Let's also get rid of all law enforcement. Why do we need any laws at all if everyone can take the law into their own hands? We could save millions of dollars. Yet, if we need no laws, let's fire all the politicians in Arizona, too." ...

... "On Jan. 18, anti-gun U.S. Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) introduced H.R. 308, the 'Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act.' The bill would ban the manufacture and importation of new magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Unlike the magazine ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004, her new bill would also make it illegal for the tens of millions of Americans who already own these magazines to sell or otherwise transfer them, even through inheritance."

"In a letter to her colleagues, Rep. McCarthy claimed, 'The only reason for the existence of these devices is to be able to shoot as many people as quickly as possible.'" ...

Submitter's Note: If that is true, Carolyn, why does your bill exempt police officers? Please explain to us the circumstances under which it would be desireable for a police officer "to be able to shoot as many people as quickly as possible".
