Attorney Rory Ellinger of O'Fallon Missouri has introduced and sponsored a bill in the Missouri House to make it a crime to own a high capacity firearm in Missouri and to have all these weapons turned in by Sept. 1, 2013 or removed from the state of Missouri; or have the weapon rendered inoperable. This same bill is being introduced in the state of Minnesota MN HF 241.

Does the right to bear arms mean that you can have firearms designed for offensive purposes, or does it mean firearms for defensive protection?

I am not arguing whether anyone is right or wrong, just asking the question. It also means that if I chose, I could own a howitzer and point it at your house doesn't it?

If you are being attacked by a tank I think a howitzer is an appropriate defensive weapon. I think defensive/offensive in relationship to firearms depends more on ones intent than the actual firearm used.

Offense/Defense....I guess it depends on which end of the barrel you're on?

You do know that the elected Rep from this county favors more gun control, right? What a lying sack of chit. He campaigned and touted his NRA Life Member status and then states, in the local paper, he favors more gun control.

when will the people understand it is not the gun it is the person who has the gun. The law abiding person will register there guns but the criminal will always have the illegal gun. and the right to bear arms does not say only if it shoots 1 bullet or 50. And why is it that our government want us to disarm? My husband is an retired Police Officer and would rather the good citizen has the gun not the criminal.

I wouldn't use Rory Ellinger as an attorney due to this stance. Pass the word.

when you advertise like that, your usually not a very high profile lawyer, especially as old as he is...He is just trying to get media attention..
