(UPDATED) Well, it certainly didn’t take long for the left-wing gun-haters in the Connecticut legislature to trot out their proposals. It’s almost like the proposals were already written, and they were just waiting for some dead bodies to stand on while they presented the Bills. Well, Rahm Emmanuel always said to never let a crisis go to waste…
This post is a long one, so refill your glass.
We need to keep the message short, powerful, and well-sourced. And we need to target the typical arguments that an anti-gun-nut will use to convince fence-sitters.
Most shooters understand that the attempts to demonize magazines for the number of bullets they hold are a false-flag attack on our rights. The rabid gun-haters are throwing everything they can think of at the wall in the hope that some of it will stick. And their willing co-conspirators in the media are eagerly assisting them by deliberately confusing the public on the subject of guns to convince them to support more gun control.
How can the magazine originally designed to be standard equipment in 1935 to fit the Browning Hi-Power (13 round capacity) be legitimately described as “high capacity”? That’s the standard capacity.
Just when you thought the 10-round limit was absurd, the blowhard governor of New York decides to go full retard. Sorry, the link goes to an outlet of the drive-by media.
From the article: “The tentative agreement would further restrict New York’s ban on assault weapons, limit the size of magazines to seven bullets, down from the current 10, and enact more stringent background checks for sales. Other elements, pushed by Republicans, would refine a mental health law to make it easier to confine people determined to be a threat to themselves or others.”
Note that as of this time, the deal is tentative. Note also that the Republicans don’t seem to have put up much resistance.
