I've seen what they've done to the Postal Service and the tax code. Furthermore, I do not see where controlling high-cap mags or black rifles or pistol grips has anything to do with protecting children. Armed mothers and fathers protect children. If need be, teachers too.
JPH: Sorry guy, but I have to disagree with you. About 2 years into my life as a shooter, I saw a list of what guns they were thinking about banning. I'd just bought a nice used Remington 1100 shotgun for general purposes. THAT gun was on the list. I immediately went out and joined the NRA, and became a life member. The membership cost me as much as the dang shotgun, but I figured it was a good investment both ways. Today, that 1100 still sits leaning against the wall next to my bed and I still believe that the government cannot disarm its free citizens without become a tyranny.

Guys, I just think this is one of those issues that we must pull ourselves from the rhetoric and age old cliches and really examine the harsh reality. 5 rd mags wont fix the problem. Increased mental health screening won't fix the problem. Building protective barriers into public spaces won't fix the problem. All of these are simply measures to slow down the bleeding in our nation. Everyone needs to accept that they must alter somewhat or the bleeding will continue without aid.
WW, your logic that the reduction to 5 rounds will eventually lead to a reduction to 1 and then a reduction to 0 does not sway me. We could easily follow it in the other direction..
