“High-capacity” firearms: as old as America itself.

Bob Owens

I first personally heard of American Spirit Arms when they joined the boycott of New York over their implementation of the blatantly unconstitutional NY SAFE Act. I was unaware (until a few weeks ago) just how much an outspoken and advocate for liberty ASA’s Joe Sirochman was until a few weeks ago, when I stumbled across his videodiscussing a “high-capacity” firearm that I’d never heard of before. I’ve been using his argument online since then, but forgot to post the link for you guys.  

It’s time to fix that.


It rather effectively destroys the gun control argument that the Founders, “couldn’t have imagined fast-firing rifles with high capacity detachable magazines,” huh? I’d suggest bookmarking that video and sending to your anti-gun friends or dropping it on Facebook so that your other friends can share it.

When you can point out that the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson himself, purchased two Girandoni rifles, it rather blows the argument that Founders didn’t know of fast-firing high-capacity, detachable-magazine rifles in civilian hands to shreds, doesn’t it?


One thought on ““High-capacity” firearms: as old as America itself.

  1. Funny isn’t it how Feinstein, Schumer, Bloomberg, Emmanuel et al don’t want gun control in *their* country
