A (somewhat liberal) friend of mine posted a link to this on Facebook tonight. I say somewhat liberal because he's liberal, except for gun rights. :)

Anyway, take a read.

A brief excerpt to pique your interest:


Those who think the Supreme Court’s decision in United States vs. Miller was a broad-based general ruling which gave the government license to restrict Americans’ civil right to be armed should also accept the Court’s logic, and consider plainly unconstitutional bans on: new manufacture of fully-automatic and semi-automatic military-type firearms, the new manufacture of detachable ammunition holders (magazines), especially those types of magazines which are standard U.S. military issue, and possession and sale of armor-piercing ammunition. These types of firearms, accessories, and ammunition are precisely those most suitable for military and militia use. and have been so issued by the Federal government to U.S. armed forces. The Court held that the keeping and bearing of such firearms was explicitly protected by the Second Amendment.


It's a moderately long read, but worth it.

EDIT:

This was posted by a college who - just a few short 6 months ago - was decidedly on the fence and in support of high capacity magazine bans, etc.

I flipped him to our side through public debates, over a period of time. Even Sandy Hook didn't sway him back, after all the talks we had.

LiveWire is on my don't read list. Too much misinformation and cojecture on the site to give any legitimacy.
