Harsh gun control will seem like war on drugs
« on: January 26, 2011, 12:54:56 PM »
This article kind of surprised me, considering that it was in Bloomberg News.  :roll:


Harsh gun control will seem like war on drugs

Some want bans on the extended capacity ammunition clips that allowed Loughner to fire more than 30 shots from his Glock semi automatic pistol without reloading. Others want improved background screening to prevent mentally unstable individuals from purchasing guns. Would these or other laws prevent incidents like the Arizona shooting? Probably not. And such laws, along with existing gun controls, not only harm responsible gun owners but may even increase violence.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I know I'm going to get heat for this!
I'm still trying to figure out in what sort of a situation a civilian would need a handgun with a magazine of such capacity.* I think that if 8 or 9 in a semi auto or 6 in a revolver won't do it for you, you are in a very wrong place or doing something you should have had brains enough not to do it.

OK, I'm in my asbestos suit and heading for cover. :D

Some shootouts, you could get by with just a few shots. Some, not, even though you do everything right. I have been in some shootouts and can tell you, if you have to burn time to changeout clips, it could cost you the ballgame in some instances.

It's like this my friend.....

You can never be too rich, too muscular, too handsome, too horny or... have too much in the ways of delivering death unto someone who is trying to kill you.



To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

very true, i feel the same way, as a civ. do you really have a need for it? no, but do you have the right to want one sure do.. and i would rather have one when the zombie hordes come calling instead of saying ge wait till i reload.. there is also the "oh crap" factor of if needed i want the biggest ugliest thing on my side than thiers, cause ya wheel it out they say oh crap....
when in doubt shoot twice

Yeah I have a need for it...every damn time I go to the range and don't want to spend more time reloading than shooting.

I don't think punishing the vast majority of honest law-abiding citizens, in an attempt to thwart a minuscule portion of mentally unstable lunatics, is ever a good idea.

  :wink: Yes and no, according to the Army. I have a civilian job with "various" enforcement responsibilities and am issued normal military weapons.
As we all know, it's necessary and comforting to have plenty of firepower when you need it.   :)

I'd much rather have "extra" ammo left than need some more.  O0

For me, it's more about wheither the gov't has the right to tell me I can't have it. They do too much telling me what's good for me.
 I equate it to full-auto bans. Why ? ( they are not actually banned, you just have to pay a one time tax ((per weapon)) and pass a background check) Not a single crime has been committed in this country with a legally owned full auto firearm since registration started. Nobody is gonna take one to the range to blow off twenty rounds or even hunt with it. 2000 rounds maybe. If someone can afford a full auto, The $200 or so tax, and wants to spend a couple hundred in ammo everytime they go to the range with it, who am I to tell them NO.
 So what if a hi-cap mag ends up in a thugs hands. That firearm gets a hole lot harder to conceal. With practice a lower cap mag can be changed out in the blink of an eye, so they could just carry more mags. The point is banning them only buys a false sense of security for the uneducated masses and empowers an already too intrusive gov't.
