Default Obama's disarm the victim movement.

http://townhall.com/columnists/nealb...ement-n1489366

So now we’re learning that Barack Obama wants to make the sale of high capacity magazines illegal. How nice. Nice --- and easy to expose as completely absurd.

Let’s just use one occurrence to address the dream shared by Dear Ruler and liberals of eliminating these high-capacity magazines in rifles and handguns.

To show the absurdity of this idea, let’s just go back to Loganville, Georgia 11 days ago. Melinda Herman was at home with her two children in this suburban neighborhood. Her husband was at work. Suddenly someone was ringing her doorbell. She was expecting nobody. The doorbell ringing turned into banging on the door. She called her husband. He told her to retreat to a crawlspace off an upstairs bedroom with the 9-year-old twins … and to take her gun … and he called 911.

The banging on the door was a predator – a thug with a lengthy criminal record. He kicked in the door and entered the house. At that point, according to the police, he immediately noticed that someone was at home. The theory is that the predator saw a kid running up the stairs to the safety of his mommy.

Now think about this. At this point the predator knew that someone was home, a child, and that the child’s mother was surely there as well. Was this man dangerous? Oh hell yes he was. If he had not presented a threat to this woman and her children he would have turned and ran as soon as he noticed the house he had broken into was occupied – by children. But he didn’t leave. He didn’t run. He started slamming around the house looking for this woman and her children. Why? To apologize for breaking in? To ask for a drink? Was he going to ask if he could sit a spell and watch Oprah? No. Nuh uh. The ONLY reason he would be looking for the occupants of the house would be to harm them. You have another reason --- let me know. He could have run. He didn’t.

Long story short: He finally hears the woman talking on her cell phone behind the attic door off the bedroom. He turns the knob, opens the door, and is staring down the barrel of a six-shot .38. The woman immediately starts shooting --- she empties the gun --- her husband is on the phone to the police shouting “She’s shooting him! A lot!” But then you can hear him yelling at his wife over the phone “Shoot him again!”

“Shoot him again?” She couldn’t. She had six shots. That was it. She had no more bullets. The predator was still alive. He was alive enough to escape the house begging Melinda not to shoot him again.

So, I ask you … what if there had been two or three thugs breaking into the house that day? What if the other two thugs were in another part of the house and, when they heard the gunshots, came into that room to find their pal on the ground in a pool of his own blood, with Melinda Herman standing over him ---- with an empty gun . What happens to her and her children then?

So another woman – another husband – hears this story and decides that he and his wife will be better able to protect themselves should multiple predators invade their homes. They go out to buy a gun. A Glock 21. A .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol with a double-stack magazine that can hold 14 bullets. That’s a great gun for home defense. Give Obama and the Democrats their way, and Melinda, or any other woman for that matter, will only have a magazine with 7 cartridges in it for their protection. While they’re groping for another magazine – if they even have one – the predators are taking aim. This will not save lives – it will cost lives.

Wait! Not save lives, you say? What about the Sandy Hook tragedy! If that lunatic shooter hadn’t had multiple high-capacity magazines some of those kids would be alive today, right? Nope, sorry. That’s wrong. At the Sandy Hook school there was NOBODY offering any resistance to the shooter. He could slam as many new low-capacity or high-capacity magazines into his guns as he wished. No resistance. Keeps shooting until you run out of targets. If this lunatic had been limited to seven-cartridge magazines he would simply have had to reload more often … with nobody challenging him.

Melinda? Sorry Melinda. You’ve shot the first thug … he’s down. But now his buddies are there and you’re out of bullets. Time to reload? Hardly. It’s time to beg for mercy. Maybe you can throw yourself in front of your kids in an attempt to save their lives. Wouldn’t that Glock with the double-stack magazine come in handy right now? Sorry … Dear Ruler made that illegal.

Well, Melinda … looks like it sucks to be you. Maybe the thugs will show you and your children some mercy. Obama certainly didn’t. The left certainly didn’t. They moved to disarm you. You obeyed the law. The thugs didn’t.

Outlawing high-capacity magazines is nothing less than limiting the ability of victims to defend themselves. Criminals, by definition, will scoff at the law and get whatever magazines they want from their pals in the shadows. Law abiding Americans will reduce their defenses. America under the rule of the left.

Why can't people understand this? Criminals are going to get whatever they want and all us law abiding citizens are going to be less armed. Its crap.

Just for the hell of it, I took my .38 and a stopwatch out.

I put 5 rounds in my pocket, loose.


I start the timer, open the revolver and empty it, pull the 5 rounds out of my pocket and reload the .38, then stop the timer.


First try- 16.5 seconds.


Think about that.

Let's say Feinstein's bill passes in all it's glory, the public is disarmed and all is good. You can only get small caliber revolvers and single shot 'sporting rifles'.


Say someone goes to shoot up the public and can only acquire a revolver.

Once he starts shooting, all the unarmed people will be running away or running for cover. (Remember, he can only get a revolver because the Feinstein bill passed and no one can carry a weapon anymore)

In 16.5 seconds, someone would have to determine that the shooter has stopped firing because he is out of ammo, has no second gun to shoot, and may or may not be reloading.


Who will take the risk of getting shot to 'rush' him and stop him from shooting more?

Obie won't try to ban by EO. He has already put the onus on Congress to 'reinstate the assault weapon ban and ban magazines with a capacity over 8 rounds'

So if Congress caves, he gets what he wants. If they uphold the Constitution, he gets to say "I tried, but those baby killer Republicans wouldn't help"

I think its so funny how the libs are ok with Abortion and supporting 400,000 abortions a year but have an issue with guns in our country as there are 30,000 violent crimes with guns. Doesnt make sense to me.
