Because No One Really Needs Ten Rounds in Their Gun

The seven round limit that, in their infinite wisdom, New York lawmakers pulled out of their rectal cavities when drafting the nation’s most egregiously restrictive anti-self defense laws was, of course, purely arbitrary. Just as the magical ten round limit was before it. If Governor Cuomo and his pals had their druthers, it would likely have been zero. There is no logic or scientific data to support anyone’s idea of what constitutes a “reasonable” maximum number of rounds the typical person might need in a defensive gun use situation. And even if there were, what if your particular situation isn’t “typical”? But the people of New York, Connecticut, Colorado and other states have to live with disarmament laws crafted by legislators, most of whom wouldn’t know a magazine from a martini. Good luck with that.

The problem with the Manchin-Toomey background check amendment, as NRA A-Rated Joe Manchin sees it, was confusion. That, and a lack of time to sell it. “Discussing his desire to revive a narrower version of gun control legislation with Republican Sen. Pat Toomey (Penn.), Manchin urged to host Chris Wallace that his detractors understand the legislation before dismissing it.’The only thing we’ve asked for is for people to read the bill.'” Which is kinda strange, since actually reading proposed legislation is generally considered an impediment to getting it passed in Congress. Still, the pride of West Virginia seems undeterred. He says he’ll introduce the M-T proposal again, this time as its own bill for an up or down vote, rather than as attachment to anything even tangentially associated with Harry Reid. Shucks, when he had the chance to explain the bill to the folks back home in Almost Heaven, they bought in. Why won’t you?
