    In case you are not familiar with his work, Alan Korwin, the “Uninvited Ombudsman,” is an excellent source for RKBA issues. He also has a free news letter you can sign up for. http://www.gunlaws.com/PageNineIndex.htm

    Below is a pull-quote from his latest offering, some suggested talking points on the proposed limit on magazine capacity. For the entire article, go to; http://pagenine.typepad.com/page_nine/2011/02/magazine-ammo-limits.html

    “The Crux”

    “By focusing on magazine size instead of ways to stop active shooters you jeopardize everyone's safety.”

    “Hoping to limit murderers by limiting magazines is irrational and hoplophobic.”

    “Why have people picked a ten-round limit? Why not two?”

    “Are they saying it's OK to only kill ten people? That makes no sense.”

    “Would you make police obey the same limit? Why not? This is key.”

    I'm all for limiting magazine capacity......5000 should be about right.

    I'll see your 5000 and raise you 10,000. Now who in the heck is going to hang on to it? Good article.

    I would have to agree with that.

    Seriously though, by the same logic...

    Cars should only go 5 miles per hour.
    Liquor should only come in airline size.
    Double cheeseburgers shouldn't exist.
    Cigarettes should only be available in singles.

    Perhaps a new thread is in order for this logic game?

    Yes.... and perhaps a new division of the government...the Department of Keeping Stupidity from Spreading

    How about we just keep on calling, e-mailing, faxing, and voting until the scum in dc is replaced with honest working people.

    Thanks for the link. You can never have too many "news" sources. The great thing about these blogs is that anyone can become a "news" source, print the goofiest stuff, and get cited as a "story" by people on the internet. It's the great democratization of American news. Relying on them is kind of like walking up to a stranger and asking what he thinks anytime you want to learn something really important.

    But yes, magazine limits are stupid. If we didn't have Alan Korwin to point that out, what ever would we do?

    No scum in your area? And no honest working people in DC?

    Looking around my property.....no scum. Have a honest hard working relative in the DC area.....if you accept that the military is hard working. (USCG Captain of the Port unit)
