Skip to comments.Pelosi: “Assault Magazines” Have To Be Outlawed
Posted on 12/19/2012 9:23:22 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Yes you read that correctly. Nancy Pelosi used the term assault magazines in an interview with MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell in talking about how the kind of firepower allegedly used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings should be outlawed.
Before I continue, I have been guilty myself in referring to certain types of weapons, even some I own myself are considered by the left to be assault weapons. I have not cared what people have called them in the past, to be honest, that does not make them anymore or less dangerous than any other gun. However, in reading a piece by Jan Morgan, I think Im going to stop referring to them as such. Heres what Morgan writes:
My AR is not an assault rifle. It is not an assault weapon. It will never be used to criminally assault anyone. My AR will only be used for defensive and sporting purposes. It is simply a modern musket.
Continuing with that point, lets define our terms here. Assault is defined by Noah Webster as:
1. An attack or violent onset, whether by an individual, a company, or an army. An assault by private persons may be made with or without weapons. As assault by an army is a violent hostile attack; and when made upon a fort or fortified place is called a storm, as opposed to sap or siege.
2. An attack by hostile words or measures; as, an assault upon the prerogatives of a prince, or upon a constitution of government.
3. In Law, an unlawful setting upon ones person; an attempt or offer to beat another, without touching his person; as by lifting the fist or a cane, in a threatening manner. If the blow aimed takes effect, it is a battery.
So Morgan is correct...

I consider Vogue an assault magazine.
So, she wants people to be armed with only one-shot pistols?
“Assault magazines”! ROTFL!!!
When you can stop gang violence, we’ll talk Nanci.
We need to outlaw Baltimoron lib machine ‘rats like Pelosi.
I guess Nancy will be going after “assault bugles” next.
Nanci needs to straighten out Baltimore and then get back to us.
She probably means ......... full auto clips.
A real pair of leftard mental midgets.
Along with NewsWeek.
She doesn’t want the peasants to be armed at all.
Assault magazines cannot be any more hazardous to the general public than nasty pelosi, and she’s been around for years.
Pelosi’s ugly ass face needs to be outlawed..or better yet, whoever her plastic surgeon was needs to be sued
you mean like this?
it gets worse.. look at the voters that put um there!
I want politicians outlawed.
All of them.
Seriously I have had enough of this crap.
