Barry Hussian Obama wants to outlaw high capacity magazines, what BS!
What am I supposed to do when the government comes after me? Reload every ten shots!
What about my rights!!!!
Fort Huachuca, AZ
#2 Jan 11, 2013
the people up there right now don't care about your rights or mine
#3 Jan 11, 2013
Our rights are protected by the second amendment. Don't worry they won't succeed.
#6 Jan 11, 2013
Where in the 2nd ammendment does it say that felons can't have guns?
I can't buy a gun at a store because of my record, now they want to take away my right to buy a gun at a gun show!?
over my dead body

did you vote?
#11 Jan 18, 2013
Cause nothing says "I suck at shooting a firearm" more then high capacity mags.
Single shot bolt action for hunting, 6-shot revolver for self defense. I've used both for their intended purpose successfully, never went hungry or got robbed.
Pull out a 30 round magazine in front of me, I will laugh you out of the room.

These amendments where written how many years ago?
#13 Jan 23, 2013
You ridicule our troops?
#15 Jan 23, 2013
Not only have our soldiers died for our 2nd ammendment, but so have 20 children in Newtown, among thousands of others.
Children die everyday protecting our right to guns. They should have their own holiday, like the troops who die.

And I suppose women shouldn't be allowed to vote and hey I guess we should all have slaves again. Times have changed obviously. If not for the ignorant state of our society these crimes would not be taking place. It's people like you that never should have been allowed to purchase a weapon. There should at the very least be an IQ test preformed previous to handing guns out.
#18 Jan 24, 2013
If there is going to be an iq test for a gun there better damn well be one to vote also ! It's the uninformed voter that got us where we are now.

Barack Obama at a recent rural elementary school assembly in East Texas , asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds, holding the audience in total silence.
Then he said into the microphone,'Children, every time I clap my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence.'
Then, little Richard Earl , with a proud East Texas drawl, pierced the quiet and said:''Well, dumb-ass, stop clapping!'

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.
If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force.
Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion.
Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force.
You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations.
These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a armed mugger to do his job.
That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury.
This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst.
The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.
The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter.
It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone.
The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.
It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act

If the jews had guns, the holocaust wouldn't have been possible.
France and Russia had guns, that's why they defeated the Nazis.

How many times do you hear of a citizen stopping a crime? Sure it happens but not that often. And look around you. The citizens of this nation are stupid probably why some of them end up criminals. So according to you complete idiots can own a gun. That's really great. And if you had not noticed the criminals are all over and you have a gun so?????
#28 Jan 24, 2013
It happens several times daily. But because it more often than not ends without any shots fired it isn't considered "news worthy". That's why you almost never hear of it.
