    They had a ten round limit on magazine capacity in New York, then they went to seven.

    A seven round limit would not have stopped the recent school shooting, so how soon until we are reduced to single shot breech loaders like the Trapdoor Springfield rifles?

    Their AWB will be DOA when it reaches the Republican controlled House of Representatives.

    Vote Republican, Vote RIGHT in the Republican primaries.

    It never ceases to amaze me how stupid our representatives actually are. They think if they pass a law then all the shootings will end. Hey dumbasses, do you know that theres a law against MURDER?

    Gotta love ol' Carolyn "the shoulder thing that goes up" McCarthy. I wonder if she has any other passions she's totally ignorant about.

    They know it. Their goal is to gain power by disarming the American public. The true dumbasses are the voters who are willing to surrender their rights for the illusion of security . :steamed:

    It's not our reps. It's freakin american people who believe that kind of crap. The reps just give american people what they want.

    Haha, the article mentions Midway USA's round it up donation effort. I wish every firearms company did that, it's a small tax i'll happily pay!

    Absolutely right. I'm amazed at their stupidity. They honestly believe that disarming law abiding citizens will stop the shootings. It's hard to believe they are that ignorant. And this is from people who are supposed to be leading our nation? God, we are in big trouble. Why don't they just be honest and admit that turning the mentally incompetent people loose on the street, so they could close the mental hospitals, is the real issue. Cure the real problem, not the failed political issue.

    I'd feel a lot better if it stayed in the Senate.

    Or incompetent...

    Or irresponsible...

    When was the last time they actually passed an Annual Budget? You know, as required by the Constitution? :whistling:

    The so-called 'gun issue' is a smokescreen in a House Of Mirrors Cards.

    No one outside the press pays any attention to McCarthy. She tries to get this through every year.

    No. They don't believe it. They're not dumb.
    They know, exactly, where they want to go with this issue and why. "Never let a tragedy go to waste"!

    It's not a tax, you don't have to round up to donate.

    I don't forsee this passing. I expect that it will die in the House.

    I would be surprised, at this point, if it even made it through the Senate.

    I envision a large number of Senate Democrats either abstaining or having the flu.

    I think she is a classic case of how grief can instill mental illness in some people. Her son was murdered and husband severly wounded (I could have it reversed) in the very LIRR train car I myself exited at New Hyde Park, NY. minutes before Colin Fergusson opened up in that car right before the Merrilon Ave. station in Garden City where the McCarthy's lived. If you google the incident under "images", you'll see Ronald Reagan hosting three of the commuters who tackled Fergusson to the ground when he change magazines at the White House. Mike O'Connor was sitting next to me as we did most nights on that train. HH

    And someone with a bunch of low capacity magazines turn a killer into a killing machine. What's your point? Besides, it's easier to hide a bunch of low capacity magazines than it is to hide a bunch of normal capacity magazines. 30 rounds is not a high capacity magazine like all the morons claim, it's a normal capacity. High capacity are the 100 round mags, not the 30 round mags. ****ing morons.

    As misguied as it is, McCarthy's thesis (based on my personal experience above) claims that smaller capacity magazines give onlookers a better chance of tackling the shooter during mag changes. The fact that the onlookers are unarmed by law seems to escape her. HH
