Your comment about him contradicting himself is asinine.
Just because someone has a difference of opinion from you doesn't make them a fascist. People are allowed to hold the opinion that guns shouldn't be
in civilian hands.
Not to mention, he is still only talking about high capacity weapons. Your "just the beginning" quote is taken out of context. The sentence
immediately after shows he's still just talking about high capacity weapons.
let me say this as clearly as I can: this is just the beginning. We believe that weapons of war have no place on our streets.
Don't try to make that out to be he wants to come for all guns.

I find your blindness/stupidity on the matter laughable.
he has defined semi-automatic firearms as "weapons of war", and says going after "high capacity weapons" is only the beginning....how can you not see
the implications of this? or is it maybe that you see them, and agree with them?
we have a RIGHT to own, and carry firearms in this country. it's already bad enough that the states have abdicated their responsibility to protect
this right for the citizens, and allow asinine illegal laws to be put in place, and enforced that require you to get a permit (basically asking for
permission to exercise guaranteed protected rights) to own, and a separate one permitting carry. realistically, the only "permit" one should need to
own, and open/concealed carry is a copy of the constitution/bill of rights.
most people don't know, or understand, that illegal laws are not laws, and you are not required to obey them. likewise, most police don't understand
that illegal laws are not laws, and that they are not required to enforce them.
You say "well, what's it hurt if they ban this kind of gun, or this kind of magazine?"....an infringement is an infringement, no matter how big or
small, it is still illegal....it's a trespass....a violation of protected rights. it'd be kinda like me camping in the corner of your back yard....i'm
only taking up a tiny bit of space, what's the harm? obviously, the harm is that it's your property, and you don't want me on it....which is your
the yard is our second amendment rights, and the guy camping on the yard is the gun grabbers, trying to take away your yard one small "harmless" piece
at a time....do you understand?
i get it if you don't own guns, or don't like guns, or whatever...it's your right to have them, but also your right to NOT have them...you are free to
make that choice...but goddamnit, leave the rest of us who decide to exercise our rights alone...
