  •  This is a really clever argument (0+ / 0-)

    More assertions based on legal theories pulled out of the ether.

    If you want to understand the first thing about the regulating assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and the constitutionality of same, you might want to start here, Norm.

    1932

    When you read the CD Circuit Court of Appeals decision on Heller II, please make a note when you encounter those two years and the courts discussion of the constitutionality of those laws. Two laws were upheld under intermediate scrutiny.

    •  Never claimed mag limits aren't constitutional (0+ / 0-)

      I have no constitutional issue with magazine limits. But just because a law is legal, doesn't mean GOP legislators will pass it.

      What I said is that the cops should lead by example, and give up large mags first. That would go a long way towards getting people in this country to follow suit.

      Because maybe you've noticed, but gun laws are getting looser, not tighter. If you want to turn the tide, might want to consider my advise. Or stick with the status quo, your call.
