I keep hearing gun opponents telling me "you don't need a 20 round magazine"....well, actually most of them say "clips" because they don't know the difference between a clip and a magazine, but you get the point.
Someone recently called my attention to a great article about one family's experiences during the Rodney King riots....I hope you will take time to read the entire article here but, if not, here are a few excerpts:
the books—and there are thousands of them—just make it that much easier for the barbarians to amass weapons and for law-abiding people like you and me to be at their mercy.
If you outlaw weapons, as so many squishy liberals yearn to do — well then, only the state and the outlaws will be armed. Which leaves ordinary citizens at the mercy of an all-powerful government and a variety of merciless criminal subcultures.
When Hitler and Stalin snatched power, one of their first moves was to outlaw private gun ownership. They understood that armed citizens are a mortal threat to totalitarian rule.
Imagine: several million Jews owning firearms between 1938 and 1945."
" The fire department, we learn, is not being deployed because their men have come under intense gunfire. We hear—and I have trouble believing this report—that the Los Angeles Police Department has been “pulled back for their own safety.”
" Korean shopkeepers were specifically targeted by black rioters. But the Koreans owned guns and heroically defended their property and lives through force of arms, frequently using AR-15s against heavily-armed looters. So anyone who tells you that private citizens don’t need assault weapons are just plain ignorant. Besides, as Mark Levin says, it is the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Needs."
