Default Just say no to a magazine capacity "compromise"

I've seen some comments on other websites and some people I know that think limiting magazine capacity to 10 rounds would be a good "compromise".

This is a terrible compromise. It is in effect a stealth AWB. While most of the legislation around "Assault Weapons" attacks cosmetic features, magazine capacity actually affect function even if it does not affect lethality.

Go check out www.assaultweapon.info if you have not already. The whole purpose is for gun grabbers to get their foot in the door. No more compromises. If you have not already communicated to your representatives, make it clear that any such compromise is unacceptable.

It's by design. Once they can "limit" the amount of rounds a magazine can have. They will publicly pat themselves on the back and claim "our streets are safer". Then after the next school shooting, they will claim they need more laws against gun owners, until the shooting public is declawed.

Arbitrary enforcement of the law is the mark of tyranny. Citizens will always fight against it.

No compromises on basic civil rights.
I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine.

Do you think 10 rounds in your AR are enough to protect your little one?

Compromise on NOTHING. Each time we give in without a fight it simply encourages the antis to press for more.
