It is apparent from many of Robert VerBruggen’s statements of fact that he is as guilty as the Brady Campaign is for making them up to support an opinion. It is difficult to find a trainer in the defensive use of firearms that supports the opinion that so called “High Capacity Magazines” do not provide an invaluable edge in a defensive situation. This is especially true for home invasions. A home invasion involves multiple perps and the rare occasion when the victim(s) resist with firearms there usually is a firefight. The exception is when the perps are repelled at their point of entry.p>Also the typical “High Capacity Magazine” holds 17 rounds or less and is the standard magazine for the pistol it fits. The 10 round magazines sold to civilians during the ten years of the federal ban had limiting devices to fix their capacity to 10 rounds. Why should well trained civilians be less prepared than the professionals? br> — Steve Cushman br> Brentwood, California /p>
This latest shooting is yet another tragic example of what we are hearing more often nowadays, and maybe that’s a good sign, that we’re hearing it finally - that government is broken.p>Why does Washington invent systems that don’t work? Maybe it’s that: 1) These people don’t live in the real world and therefore don’t understand the real world. 2) They really don’t care about results as long as they have pandered successfully to their constituency. 3) They deliberately design failure in so that they can come back again with another fix knowing that they won’t be held responsible for the previous failure. How can the public continue to cling to the illusion that government is the answer to every need? br> — Richard Parr /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
