    If this is indeed the price we pay for second amendment rights, why do people get so damn offended when I propose that the NRA and others build a monument to those who pay that price? Wayne La Piere does not pay that price. Charlton Heston did NOT pay that price. Seventy people in Colorado paid a price and for a dozen of them they paid the ultimate price. But when I and others want that price acknowledged publicly, we are attacked and ripped into and portrayed as gun grabbers.
    that was one of the most stupid suggestions I have ever seen on this board. It was a less than subtle way of blaming a right for those killed by criminal activities. It is based on the idiotic ASSumption that if we have no second amendment rights those people would not have died.

    Even 1k rounds is going to weigh quite a bit. I have no idea why he went with that amount myself, I could see if there was a time of unrest and someone were to "bunker down".
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I believe, that since he was armored up, he actually thought he would get away with this and live to do it again.

    A rifle can take out a cobra pilot or a tank? You have never been in combat.

    More ignorance-100 round magazines are very popular with "three gun" match competitors.

    I love people who know nothing about guns telling we who do what is NEEDED

    its like me, a guy who has played all of 18 holes of golf in my entire life telling Tiger Woods how many irons and woods he needs.

    stop lying-the murder rate in Mexico is much higher than ours. Russia-pretty bad too. South Africa. And England's rate of violent crime is now higher than ours

    Yes, a rifle round can take out a tank depending upon the model. Gas containers on tanks tend to not be armored as well, and there are weak spots on many tanks. Now, an M1 Abrams is more of a challenge but even they have weak spots, Cobra helicopters are not well armored compared to other combat models, however their fight capability makes them a challenge, but they have to land eventually and their pilots are NOT armored.

    He stayed too long to think he would get away. He wore armor to help ensure he would live to enjoy his celebrity status. I wonder how many guys urinate in his food before he gets it?

    Why don't you just stand up against the assholes that commit gun crimes?

    You're the chief of staff for a state legislature lizard. Hows about you suggest he introduce legislation that makes gun crime carry an automatic death penalty?
