NRA Director Says Five Rounds is Enough

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Fri, 07 Sep 2007 10:49:59 GMT  <== RKBA ==> 

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership - Joaquin Jackson, an NRA board member and (former?) Texas Ranger, thinks that "assault weapons" should be in the hands of police and military, but if we peons have them, their magazines should be limited to five rounds. Yet he claims to believe in the right to keep and bear arms. He claims we need the Second Amendment to preserve the First and Fourth. Somehow, I doubt his idea of free speech or protection from unwarranted search are worth protecting. They're probably tyranically watered down as well. Embedded below (QuickTime) is an August 9th interview with Mr. Jackson, in which he spills the beans on his luke-warm support of our gun rights. [jpfo]

Equality of Firearms

Submitted by Tinker on Sun, 16 Sep 2007 06:19:02 GMT

The push for increasing inequality is visually amplified in the disparity between the firearms the government claims the sole right to possess and use, and the firearms the people are "allowed" to own and use. To whatever extent our fire power is not equal is the extent to which they have direct advantage over us. Any such advantage is unfair and unconstitutional because no one in uniform gains the rank of a superior over the people, regardless of what they may enjoy believing. We are all equals. The government is not our superior, or our punisher, or our owner, director, or boss. The government can never posses rights of any kind, all rights belong only to individuals, regardless of what kind of clothing they wear.

Let no one forget that the people pay for every bullet in those guns, every bit of body armour, every cannister of tear gas, every uniform, police car, building, road, computer - you get the idea. Throughout history this simple truth has prevailed: "He who pays the bills makes the rules". Since when has that basic reality been turned upside down and on what purported logic? Does anyone think the people voted to be the enslaved pre-obligated bill payers of an out of control heavily armed government who pays them no mind? Hog dookie. Equal weapons for equal beings; or else we quit funding the thugs who can't wait to pummel unarmed people into the ground and throw them behind bars for the unbearable sin of having a problem with the hubris and unjust actions of this government.
