I'm not saying I support a ban on magazines... Also I couldn't support anywhere CLOSE to a 10 round limit.... My issue is that I can't come up with much of a "dual use" defense for something like a 70rd rifle mag.
As Karl pointed out what part of "shall not be infringed" is not understood. The problem with "dual use" thinking is that it is NOTHING but a ploy to ofusicate the hidden agenda and the true argument via a false logic. It is the tool of vipers used to pretend 'intelligence and sensitivity' to the issue. Persons promoting "dual use" as the arguement immediately reveal a lack of critical thinking ability.
Once precedent is set the bureaucrats always want a little bit more. They never admit their 'laws' were the cause of the problems. The quest for total power is an endless hunger.
The Constitution does not need a dual use to be employed or obeyed. It is what it is. If one does not like it - tough! You are free to go. Be glad you still have that option but even that right is now being infringed via excessive taxes.
The problem with a republic and bureaucrats is that the bureaucrats eventually believe they are the government. When this occurs we get laws contrary to the rules of the republic. When proper redress does not correct the issue only 2 alternatives are left - enslavement by or rebellion against self-appointed masters. Only the 2nd amendment can guarantee a republic of the people, for the people, and by the people as intended by the framers.
Its a shame that so much of the Jewish population are in league with the gun banners. It seems a type of self-denial.
So many forget the British plan to disarm the colonist to crush any rebellion against them. "Listen my children and you shall here of the midnight ride of Paul Revere".
IMO a fascist government and a well-armed crook are the same thing, ergo self defense and protection from tyranny are the same thing.
The actions and defense are the same. A government that refuses to recognize its limitations is much more dangerous - especially one with a propaganda machine and a populace that has been so dumbed down that is has lost its critical thinking ability.
We also have too many modern day "Tories" that have no appreciation of their freedoms.
