I thought I was beyond surprise at the obscene depths to which U.S. Representative Carolyn McCarthy would be willing to sink in her relentless attacks on the Constitutional rights of American citizens, but I was wrong. Unwilling to wait even a single day to exploit the heinous killings on the campus of Virginia Tech for the furtherance of her civilian disarmament agenda, she introduced a new freedom-destroying bill within hours of Cho Seung-Hui's heinous act.
H.R. 1859, "To reinstate the prohibition on the possession or transfer of large capacity ammunition feeding devices, and to strengthen that prohibition," is so new that the text is not yet available for viewing by the public, but the title says enough to make it clear that this is what McCarthy thinks of as the "next best thing," to passing H.R. 1022 (H.R. 1022, thankfully, would seem to have little chance).
I wonder what "strengtheng that prohibition" refers to--limiting the capacity to nine, instead of ten? Maybe lower still? Maybe no "grandfather clause," meaning that owners of full capacity magazines would have to surrender their property, or face imprisonment or death at the hands of the BATFE?
The fact that she would introduce such a bill is, of course, not at all surprising. It's the timing that makes this especially contemptible--it's almost as if she had been waiting for just such an "opportunity." As the VPC once lamented,
. . . and the fact that until someone famous is shot, or something truly horrible happens,. . . public support for so-called "gun control" will not be enough for the rights deprivation lobby to achieve its goals. Now, McCarthy, the VPC, the Brady Bunch, and the rest have their "something truly horrible," and they don't intend to waste it.
I guess that dancing in the blood of a killer's victims is more fun when the blood is still warm.
