    It's of historical interest that by 1934 Bonnie and Clyde, Dillinger, Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and other notorious gangsters were dead or in prison.

    Absolutely not, the 10 round capacity was chosen arbitrarily.

    its just a round number to use ,to start with .Then they will lower it more like New York state making only 7 rounds legal ,I think the courts made them put that on the back burner ,but iam sure it will come back

    But, we don't.

    The burden is always, always, on those who wish to use force against others. The burden is always, always, on those who wish to restrict what other people can and cannot do or can and cannot own or possess.

    The events in recent history of the day motivated the passage of the NFA. Gangster shootings in Chicago seemed to be at the epicenter of the drive for passage of the law, many using a particularly infamous weapon similar to the evil device pictured in my avatar. :evil:

    That many gangsters were dead or imprisoned isnt really germaine, or surprising.

    Then I wonder why the NRA spends so much money and time lobbying for our 2nd A rights?

    Never and you can't. Its an Infringement period. The whole purpose is to disarm you and then enslave you.

    It's of no conciliation to law abiding people that a ban is eventually overturned in the courts if you've been forced to give up your property (and liberty) in the meantime. It's not as if they'll put your magazines, or the guns that don't have "low capacity" magazines made for them into storage pending litigation. You have to either sell them, move them, or forfeit them - or ignore the law and risk prosecution. It means the law abiding person is the one punished.
