Newsclip: "The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence put out the new spot on Tuesday morning calling directly on President Obama to take a stand against high-capacity magazines -- the clip used by Jared Loughner, the alleged shooter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and 19 others in Tucson."
My response: So, if while lawfully defending myself, family, and possibly others in my immediate vicinity against the likes of the next Loughner, I run out of my 10-round magazine while the next Loughner still has 22 more rounds to go, what then? Request a time out because it's against the law for him to have more than 10 rounds?
By the way, your group is infamous yet again: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...re-at-it-again
PS: I'm a Virginia Tech graduate, as well as a retired military officer. Having carried firearms both on and off duty, openly and concealed, for the last twenty-two years, I can't help but wonder how many lives would have been saved had at least ONE person in Cho's vicinity been carrying a firearm.
What part of "the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" do you folks not understand?
What part of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that this right is an individual right, and not a collective right, do you not understand?
What aspect of the negative correlation between the carry of firearms by honest, law-abiding citizens and crime rates over the last 110 years do you not understand?
I went to college for several reasons, one of which was to learn science and engineering, including statistics, and the other was to learn how to think rationally, intelligently. I must have done something right, as I was able to retire at age 45 and embark on a second career. What I cannot understand is why your organization, bleeding with mindless, illogic rhetoric, is still in business. Evidently, what you lack in logic, rationality, and analytic skills, you make up in your ability to sway opinion based on emotional appeal. Sadly, that's all you're able to do.
