The Gun Control Movement's Dangerous Incompetence
American Thinker ^ | 2/20/13 | William A Levinson

"Dangerous incompetence" means exactly that: ignorance, negligence, and/or dereliction of duty that endangers human life and safety. A medical quack who prescribes medications for patients he has never seen, or without going to medical school and passing a licensing examination, is a prime example. Equally dangerous incompetence, of the kind that can kill people, pervades the gun control movement.

Dangerous Incompetence Regarding Armed Self-Defense

Senator Dianne Feinstein and Governor Andrew Cuomo, like any medical quack who prescribes drugs for real or imaginary illnesses, think they know how many bullets a person might reasonably need for self-defense against one or more violent assailants. Feinstein thinks it's ten, and Cuomo seven.

"Interview with a Gunfighter" by Front Sight describes, however, an attack in which a senior citizen needed 11 rounds of .40 caliber to stop two armed home invaders. Colonel Jeff Cooper's To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth describes an incident in which eight rounds of .380 automatic were required to stop a violent assailant. Six rounds were not enough to stop a home invader who threatened a woman and her children in Georgia (he fled the house and drove away with five gunshot wounds), but he did not know his prospective victim had run out of ammunition.

It was not incompetence when Al Qaeda murdered 3,000 Americans on 9-211-2001, and it is not incompetence when the gun “control” nutcases endanger American lives and freedom. Evil is a choice, not just an oopsie.

Good grief, while any number of arguments from good to execrable can be made about the *need* for “Large capacity” magazines, I have yet to see a good explanation of how preventing the manufacture of the magazines gun owners *want* serves the public good.

There are currently a number of manufactures who produce a wide variety of magazines, employing a significant number of Americans. Why should much or their product lines be prohibited?
