Give No Quarter!
The kerfluffle over ‘over 10 round magazines’ hit home the other day. As if one extra round suddenly transforms the law-abiding into sociopathic murderers! First, the David Gregory business, wherein he violated Washington D.C. felony law possessing one (and displaying it publicly on national television!)
And it’s come out that an ‘assault weapon’* (whatever THAT is) wasn’t used in the recent school shooting. Of course Rahm Emanuel said. “
Never give a sucker an even break!” “Never let a crisis go to waste!”
and then this…
The subject came up in a conversation and the other person (a gun owner who dislikes gun control) said to me, “What’s the big deal about magazines? I don’t have any 30 rounders; don’t want any – let them have them. I don’t care, it doesn’t affect me.“
They just don’t get it. Slippery slope and all that. Think of all the progress legitimate firearms ownership has made over the past 20 years, the number of States now with CCW and Constitutional Carry. Stand your ground laws. And they want to fritter others rights away because it doesn’t affect them, personally.
I responded, “Are you willing to give up your 13 and 17 rounders for your beloved Browning High Power?”
“Oh, Hell No!” was the response.

No quarter! We’ve gained so much ground, do not give an inch.*assault weapon – a term used to impart evil intent to the tool, itself. See Saturday Night Special
