    The republicans don't have the stones to push back on this at a state or federal (in the NY Senate - the Republican majority leader has already stated he's going to back the governor's proposal to ban pre-ban mags as well (post-ban high cap mags are already illegal.)

    Contact your reps folks immediately (don't resolve to 'do it later' - you won't do it.)

    Such a ban would create a whole new class of criminals well-populated by many/most of the tens of millions of firearms enthusiasts.

    "but it's for the children."

    What worked for the Republican party in the past isn't working for them anymore...and I think they're going to change their attitudes toward firearm ownership/rights just to gain votes because we're in the minority now.

    So because NY will ban them it means the entire US will?

    I lived through the last "high" (standard) mag ban and will live through this one, if it happens. The last one brought about hordes of " low capacity" weapons suitable for CCW.

    The legislation is be re-introduced by CO & NY US Reps DeGette & McCarthy.

    Look at the parallels in NY - the dysfunctional NY Senate has a Republican majority. There's a popular governor who's pushing for a high-cap mag ban...and the senate majority leader is backing the proposal.

    Boehner is in a weak position, and he's in the same situation as described above, against a popular president.

    AR 15 type firearms & magazines will go the way of machine guns. They will be classified as NFA, with no new production for civilians. :(

    Boehner the Backboneless had better not ever be re-elected for any position higher than dog catcher. The only thing consistent about him is his absolute lack of ability.

    For a "nutcase" to be deadly he sure as heck dosen't need a high cap mag.
    My hope IS that the wishy-washy members of our so called Congress will see beyond the typical Knee-Jerk, Window Dressing Crap and INSIST on STRICT enforcement of EXISTING Firearms Legislation.

    Why don't you guys use the energy to write your kongresskritters instead of to mope around pessimistically about gloom & doom antigun laws that the "spineless" republicans will cave on????????????

    The wishy-washy members of our congress don't know anything about guns, and so the only time they care about them is when they feel scared/vulnerable because some 'nutcase' goes on a rampage...all this does is reinforce the idea that 'guns are bad mkay'?

    That's how we get these 'barrel shroud is a shoulder thing that goes up' legislators to go along with laws that make no difference/sense. It's emotionally driven, not logically driven.

    IMHO at least 50% of this nation lives rural. After 8:00pm the town P.D. shuts down. 911 calls get forwarded to the county sheriff dept for service and/or state police. At 3:00am when 3 thugs are kicking in your door and your wife a daughter are in the house in there baby doll P.J.'s a 45 minute response is a long time to wait for help as your family is being savaged by the thugs. This is the reason the people of America need/ have to have hi-cap mags. 10 rds mags are or not enough fire power. God forbid you need more fire power during the long wait for 911 response to your call for assistance

    The solution is so simple.

    They should just pass a law saying nobody can use a semi-automatic weapon to commit a crime.

    That would solve everything.

    Unfortunately the real number is closer to 80% urban vs. 20% rural. This is a big part of our problem. We own most of the acreage, but our voting population pales against those living urban. It sucks when we love our form of government, but the numbers are against us big time.

    It means the life I live out here in the boonies is becoming ever more endangered by the common vote of the people. How terribly sad.

    That's one reason that my wife is quite capable of using a fire arm.

    Yesterday I received a phone call from a solicitor for the Repubs asking for money. I politely but firmly told them that all of my contributions, presently, are going to the NRA. I let them know that I'd be watching to see how Republicans counter the gun grabbers in the coming fight, and that would determine whether or not I continue to support them with my money.

    If that's a rallying cry, I'd take it back to the drawing board.

    To the OP: What's your point? What's your plan of action? I get it, you're panicked. Please take a breath, calm down, and channel it into action or a constructive conversation. Enough with the clucking.
