    Magazine capacity limits (why is the left so stupid?)

    As I listen to more and more people talk on the news about reduced "magazine clips" (I know, don't get me started) and other BS I am left with an answer to why I disagree with mag capacity limits that nobody seems to bring up. For those in NY state for example, you have 7 rounds to protect yourself in a magazine. And the left says "why would you need any more than that?"

    Has the left ever fired a pistol at anything? Have you ever, oh I dunno, MISSED!? What about multiple attackers? 3 bad guys against me and my 1 gun with 7 rounds sound like really bad odds to me. I mean, police officers who have to qualify to shoot their service guns are documented to miss many times during a shoot out (and who can fault them, I would imagine precision is hard to come by when lead is wizzing by your face!)

    So why do the left suddenly think that my 7 bullets are now somehow magical? Apparently they think I NEVER miss and that a single .40 S&W round instantly drops a would be attacker.

    I mean, I ponder this and think to myself, are they really that DUMB!? The answer saddens me.

    Not dumb, ignorant.

    Don't confuse agenda-driven fervor for stupidity.

    I'll say it again, don't underestimate them. They are not dumb or stupid! They know exactly what they are doing! Their goal is not to prevent further mass shootings, it is to incrementally disarm us!!

    The thing with the antis is you just cannot derail their one-track minds no matter if it is mag limits, so-called “assault” weapons or background checks.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    If it is in fact willful and blatant disregard for the constitution (and not stupidity), is there not some recourse? If you break your sworn oath when you become an elected official, can't you be removed? Why are they not being removed? This is so frustrating! I am watching my country be picked apart piece by piece and I can do nothing to stop it! A country I have seen family and friends bleed and die in defense of and a few leftist in Washington are killing it. I am righteously indignant to the point of rage and all I can do is sit in the middle and suck on it.

    Saw the same tired talking points in an ny post article from ray Kelly today,who I used to respect, till I read this article
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    smolck, I feel your pain...I sit at my desk and think for hours what can I do to stop this madness. I do not have a large bully pulpit like O'reilly or Hannity. I am open for suggestions. I already am now a life member of NRA..I also belong to MCRGO (state) gun organizations. I just volunteered as a helper for a rally to our state capitol. GRRRRR

    Check out SweatnBullets article. He addresses these types, in 3 separate categories.

    For example, you're dealing with people who are evil and want to disarm us, and they in turn take advantage of ignorant people who are unable to see the motives of the evil people.

    The result is the anti-gun climate that we have in NY.

    Some of them really are that stupid. Seriously. However, those at the top who are really pushing this likely know the truth, they just don't care. It's hard to say which group is more dangerous.

    They are neither dumb nor ignorant. They know exactly what they are doing and why. It is called "Incrementalism." NY started with an arbitrary limit of 10. Now 7, then 5, yada, yada, yada ZERO. That's the end goal, this is just an incremental means to it.

    they dont care. They just have one thing on their agenda. We all know what that is. Total disarm and total control. Stay safe and carry on.
