Our illustrious US Senator Dick Durbin (D) stated in a recent radio interview in regards to magazine capacity that,
"...."we should limit it to 10 and even that is a generous limitation" ...http://chicago.cbslocal.com/audio/976-a ... sue-title/
(6 minute mark)
"WE"??? "LIMIT"??? Didn't this man take an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of The United States? Doesn't he understand that our right to self defense WITH ARMS is NOT a government privilege to be granted or taken away at their whim like a fishing license, but an inalienable birthright?
But in a way I'm glad he said it, because it illustrates EXACTLY what people like him really believe.....that we have no individual right to self defense, and that any privilege's (in his perspective, not mine) that we do have are granted at the behest of political officials like himself. If today Senator Durbin grants us a 10 round limit, then what's to stop him from saying next time that it should be 3, or 1? The answer is NOTHING will stop him. In his mind it's up to him and others who "know better" than us what it will be.........and he's dead wrong. We either have the right, or we don't. And there is no middle ground. A compromise today merely sets the precedent for more loss of our rights tomorrow.
Neither he, nor anyone else can "grant" me what I already have had since birth....
