How in hell does high volume magazines “strike at the core of the Second Amendment ― the right to armed self-defense.”. The second amendment doesn't mention self defense. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." First: A well regulated militia draws arms from the armorer when needed to defend our free state. They aren't combat ready 24/7. Second: The intent of the words "right to keep and bear arms" was written when the arms had to be reloaded after each firing. I can't think of any time where more than 10 rounds would EVER be necessary in a non-combat situation. High capacity mag owners, big loud pickup (everything) owners, ar15 owners and daily pistol packin' paranoids all fit the same mold. Most proudly display very specific hate tats. I live right in the middle of these knuckle-draggers and it's all about who has the biggest hands.
