I honestly don't understand why the anti-gun crowd doesn't want to admit to the facts:
0) The Constitution clearly spells out our right to keep and bear arms with no stated limitations. Age, gender, cruiminal history, type of weapon, purpose of weapon - it doesn't matter. Evry American was born with this right, and it cannot be infringed.
1) Gun laws and carry restrictions don't hurt anyone but law-abiding citizens. Criminals, by their very nature, abhor and ignore any law that might be on the books, especially if that law puts them at a tactical disadvantage. Given this fact, it is pointless to say convicted felons are prohibited from possessing a firearm.
2) No government - from city to federal - is legally allowed to regulate HOW weapons are carried.
3) Limits on magazine capacity are pointless. The fact that you can't buy some pistols in some states because they hold X number of rounds is beyond absurd. A pistol can deliver with seven or 17 rounds - it doesn't matter.
The Brady Campaign was born as a result of a deranged person illegally (?) concealed carrying a pistol. Guess what, he knew it was illegal, and he did it anyway. FACT - local laws did not protect Mr. Brady, and they won't protect any other law-abiding citizen that is unable to defend himself.
One day, it will be illegal to carry a pocket comb...
