    GeorgiaDawg you said it.
    With Bill Oreily, Scalia, Michael Savage and many others saying semi autos and big mags should be banned I have to conclude this is an orchestrated plan in full swing.

    This time they will get it done because all the ruling elite want it.
    They know themselves that it's absurd to suggest we can all be protected from theater maniacs that kill 12 and injure others by banning semi auto.
    That is not the real reason they all (right and left elite) want this.

    The real reason is they see real problems with the collapse coming and they want to protect themselves ( the 1% 'ers ).
    They don't want us commoners to have anything that will threaten them.

    You people keep arguing about cannons and nukes and are missing the point of this thread.
    The one thing we have to protect ourselves with any possibility of success is semi autos and that is what we are going to loose.

    It apears to me that the right and left elite are selling us down the river.

    If or when they are successful in taking the semi-autos they will then go after all repeating rifles.

    Yes they must!

    and since two 6 shot revolvers, one in each hand, could kill 12 people in a movie theator in 4 seconds ... one of those must be surenderd too.

    ... no wait ...

    We must only be allowed a single shot pistol ... and one round.

    When you fire that one round ... send in the empty shell to redeem it for a shiny new cartrige ... which will be sent in 10 busines days via parcel post.

Guns are not a republican or democratic or conservative or liberal issue. If you let yourself believe that they are then your doing EXACTLY what the Brady campaign wants you to. Your convincing all of those non anti gun democrats that to be a democrat you also have to be anti gun. Please, don't help the Brady campaign.
    Exactly the point most people seem to overlook. My wife has been a Kennedy style Democrat her whole life, but she's owned more gun than I have, has a CC permit and is a better shot than anyone I know. OTOH, while many lament the election of our current President, if you check his record you'll see that his predecessor was no real friend to the NRA or gun owners. Too many people vote for the party and not the issues and while it may sound cold, a majority of American voters selected our current administration and now they are getting what they voted for. Let's hope we'll have learned something about voting for someone because of party affiliation or because it's PC instead of their qualifications and experience.

He also noted in Heller that restrictions regarding who may own a weapon, where they may bear it and what types of weapons they might keep and bear were clearly allowed under the Second Amendment, but when on to say that ruling on these questions was beyond the scope of the issue in front of the court. At the same time, the Heller court held that it was not reasonable to to restrict an entire class of weapons (ie, handguns) that are uniquely suited to self defense.

    There will likely be an issue by issue, case by case battle in the coming years over what what the constitutionally permitted limitations of the RKBA really are.

    Yes but he appointed 2 rabidly anti-gun members to the surpreme court who will be there for at least the next 30 years. This is worse than any legislation
