    I am a firm believer that we have an inalienable right to defend our lives and liberty by any reasonable means, including the use of firearms. However, I do not believe this right extends to owning weapons and accessories designed to inflict mass casualties. That is why I oppose their manufacture, sale or possession by private individuals. (I also believe that possession of a gun during the commission of a felony should result in an additional 10 year jail sentence.)

    The Second Amendment does not protect the private ownership of machine guns, so why should weapons and accessories that mimic them be protected?
    I do not see this as a panacea for mass shootings, but I do think there should be some limits on their availability to dangerous and mentally unstable people. Would that constitute an intolerable imposition on the rest of us?

    Semi automatic weapons do NOT mimic full auto, never have never will. And the size of a magazine has nothing to do with anything.

    and bump stocks , i don't care but i would fight the ban as i don't want to GIVE an INCH , based simply on Principle . Magazines , most mags that are called high capacity are simply NORMAL Capacity magazines that the gun was designed to accept for reliable use . Those would be 5, 10 , 20 and 30 round magazines made for the AR15 . ------------------- now there are weird variants like 200 round magazine that are just unreliable and stupid toys which would also make an AR weight about 100 pounds [thereabouts] .

    Yet I read in my paper this a.m. that the Maine legislature thinks it is too "complicated" an issue to consider with only three weeks left in the session.
    Not even this will be considered.
