“I know what it’s like to have tragedy brought to your life in a split second by a madman with high-capacity ammunition magazines,” said Rep. McCarthy, whose husband was killed and son seriously wounded by a gunman on the Long Island Railroad in 1993. “I’m working to stop it from happening again. We need comprehensive reform to reduce the number of people hurt or killed by gunfire in America, but one simple way we can do that is by keeping the worst tools of mass murder away from the general public. This nation has come together before to support this simple, commonsense measure, and it is the law in several states right now. It is a small sacrifice that law-abiding gun owners can make once again in order to increase everyone’s safety.”
Well, Carolyn McCarthy isn't completely ignorant. While she may not know what a barrel shroud is, she does seem to know that guns owners have made at least one small sacrifice in the past. In fact, gun owners have made several small sacrifices in the past. We made a small sacrifice in 1934, in 1968, in 1986, and in 1994. And that's just at the federal level. That's not even getting into the various state level sacrifices like one-gun-a-month, registries, licenses, etc.
How many more small sacrifices must we make before she stops asking for them? You can only give so many small sacrifices before you have sacrificed everything. And don't think for a moment that that is not her goal. Death by a Thousand Cuts is her plan. McCarthy will not be satisfied by any sacrifice short of the full surrender of all of your Second Amendment rights.
