“It’s fanciful to think that guns in the hands of citizens acts as a realistic check,” said Donohue. “They’re not really trained to do so. And it’s fanciful to think that the military would ever turn on U.S. citizens.”
A Stanford University law professor took the view that the Second Amendment permits strong gun control, telling the crowd that “restriction has to be at the core” of the right to carry a gun.
John J. Donohue, a member of the Stanford Law School faculty, made his remarks during a debate with attorney Donald Kilmer, an adjunct professor at Lincoln Law School of San Jose.
“I support the right to self-defense,” said Donohue during the debate, according to The Stanford Review. “But that doesn’t mean that you have a right to high-capacity magazines.”
yes you do not have the right to high capacity magazines to defend your self, but your attackers do...
so you loose,,, grate thought for a idiot, but any one with a single functioning brain cell will disagree.
the only ones that need to have gun limits are the ones in Big Government if we the people are limited then those limits must also apply to all Government,,,
how about that as a correction to the constitution , any limit put on we the people must be also the same on all government agencies police and military,,,
I have a constitutional battle going. Why not support it? Just check out the latest UPDATES on my blog. If I can get up to the Washington State Supreme Court, it will have to break out into the media. Then we can get our government employees back into abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land. Scroll down to the January 24, UPDATE:
I fully endorse this suggestion! Write, write write emails and letters to your respective Congressmen and Senators! Inundate them with so much input that to deviate from their oak of office
Let them know we are coming to DC on 16 May and if that does not get their attention, we will be back in DC, but we will not be nice.
You just might be right. You might want to plan on coming on 17 May. What a difference a day will make.
Like music to my ears.
that is OK I think we need to add a few more to the constitution like
taxes may be collected on increase and sales taxes only no other tax allowed.
all taxes are to be a percentage with a single deduction for every person , no additional deductions,
IE Taxes are on your increase, flat percentage a deduction ( the same for every one that will cover the cost of living, )
simplify tax code and eliminate further taxes.
return big Federal Government to the roll of defending our rights from States and Counties and Cities not taking them away.
Prof. Donohue has a reading comprehension problem. "Shall NOT" means, "Of course we can". Typical "professor non-think!"
