Stanford law prof: Second Amendment is about restricting gun rights

“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.”

Another fool not knowing why the Second Amendment is there; it is to keep us from tyranny! Thus high capacity magazines just as Federal troops will have! We are the people and we know we see tyranny around the corner with the idiot Marxist in the White House.

What did our Founders want us to have just in case?

Whatever it takes. Little should be off limits.

Then I suggest to you Mr. Donohue that not  only do you not no the law and have no right teaching it You my friend are a huge part of the problem,and it says a lot to why our rights are being Bombarded today. and as far as the General citizen not being trained Most of us are actually Are  more proficiant with firarms than the police ,  and we sure as hell exercise more causen and discretion when it comes to useing them Than the Police the General public doesn't shoot first and aske questions later as do the police. so with that being said Just who do you think is best sutied for ones own self deffence. I know who i trust and it's the law abiding citizen with a consciousness and concern for others Any Day!!!!!!!!!

What may be sad is this so called professor may never know the anger that is out here and how stupid we think he is.

Since you mentioned terrorists I'll take the opportunity to expand a bit...

Boy-O-Boy,,,, this nut professor, John Donohue, really seems to have pushed some of your hot buttons.

Don't get so upset! What this country (Read, "We The People") need is suggestions for corrective actions.

In my OPINION, the Tea Party, Command needs to compile a list of the un-desirable socialistic, communist, un-American dead-beats that are harming our country, (I have a great start of my list, Obama, Holder, Feinstein, Pelosi, Donohue, etc,etc) when the time is right, go to your list, make use of it in the best effective manor.

Quote, "It the long history of the world, very few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in it's maximum hour of danger. This is that moment and you are that generation! Now is the time to defend our Freedom...."

What is it going to take to hit your hot button, patriots? I understand where the cowardly American stands,,,, but the time is right now. Let's GO Patriots.
