Several problems there. 1. "Well-regulated" most definitely is not 18th-century parlance for "limitation." The only people still spouting that falsehood are those committed using it as a justification for prohibiting firearms and/or firearm accesories as a means of controlling the behavior of people.mrcee12 wrote:It is total NRA, i.e. National Russian Association, to say that candidates asking for restrictions on firearms are prohibitionist. Just because someone doesn't think you should have an 80 round magazine doesn't make them anti-second amendment. And the second amendment, unlike the first, comes with words of limitation, that "well-regulated" part that so many seem eager to leave out. If your stance is that any attempt to reasonably regulate guns is inimical, then you will bring on the world you so fear. There is a middle ground, just find it.
2. Candidates are trying to ban _rifles_. So "Just because someone doesn't think you should have an 80 round magazine" misrepresents their positions--and glaringly obviously. Also, they are in favor of banning magazines half or less than half the size you used in your example. Those 30- and 40-rounders are standard-capacity magazines for AR- and AK-pattern rifles respectively.
3. We have the inclusion of the 2nd Amendment as a restriction on government specifically to avoid being subject to whichever mob's definition of "to reasonably regulate guns" is carrying the day politically. So far all three branches of government have been happy to try to define it anyway. At the state level that is what people are witnessing in Virginia.
4. With regard to not accepting the candidates' definitions of "to reasonably regulate guns" resulting in a situation in which I "bring on the world" I "so fear," you have asserted their proposed prohibitions have _proven_ to be the solution to, I gather, some notable level of violence. That is a problem for you because the burden of proof is on he or she who asserts the positive. Good luck. Additionally, I can guarantee you are not the arbiter of what I might fear.
