    Wait a minute. It is YOU who claim that the minorities in the USA are the problem. Not me. So feel free to present the data. You seem to want it both ways here as you blame minorities but yet back away from stating that without them we would equal the rate of Japan. So which is it?



    Actually it works every day in every theater in America except that one in Colorado this weekend. That is a success rate that is well north of 99%.



    And that is sad. So what do we do about that?
    So, all is fine, keep pumping endless tax money into "the hood", have an endless war on drugs that keeps profits high, gangs in control and simply try to isolate that crime into the proper zip codes. When crime occurs in "nice" areas then have marathon TV coverage and still not acknoweldge that gov't funds given to the Batman killer (or was he the Joker killer?) allowed him to purchase his arsenal and kill lots of folks.

    As you say, what we have now is 99% effective, but does not address the REAL areas of massive crime, those "urban areas" that are allowed to remain both lawless AND heavily (if not completely) funded by tax money. Perhaps the first step is to NOT supply endless federal tax money to high crime areas, stop federal subsidizing of ALL out of wedlock childbirth and concentrate on keeping those that commit crime in prison for MUCH longer times.

    Legalize and tax recreational drugs, just like alcohol, and when morons choose to spend their money on dope, to stay stoned (addicted), instead of working and buying food, they starve (perfect and honest drug education). Rewarding failure through gov't "help" is not really helping, except to create a gov't dependent underclass free to breed criminals.

    More gov't "help" is not working, so let us try less gov't "help", more law enforcement and stop trying to blame THINGS for the behavior problems of 1% to 2% of our criminal morons.

    The last true war we had was World War II. We had a total mobilization of the American society and winning the war was a daily effort involving the American people. Try to imagine Nazi operatives handing out literature on a New York City corner in 1943 and tell me how long they would last. Now compare that wartime environment with the "war on drugs" today.

    There is no war on drugs.
    By that measure, there is no war on terror, either.

    Bingo! That is why the most powerful military on the planet, in over a decade, with "allied support" can not advance beyond a stalemate, in Afghanistan, against an enemy that has no navy, no air force and a "rag tag", at best army. While we fight these "terrorists" we supply/support their corrupt governements (Karsai and the Taliban) and over 70% of the entire nation's GDP with our tax money. It is totally insane, yet that is our foreign policy; piddle along playing world policeman and buying "friends" in low places. After spending MANY BILLIONS and wasting many U.S. lives, we are no further along in fighting terror or drugs but continue to play at it, since many profit handsomely along the way. USA, USA, USA...

    A 100 round drum in competitive shooting? Where in the world have you ever seen/heard that? A 100 round drum would severely alter shooting position. The only practical application for a 100 round drum is to suppress a target. That is why the military has 100-200 round drums for all squad automatic and crew serve weapons. We use them to suppress targets while riflemen maneuver. WE DON'T EVEN CARRY 100 ROUND DRUMS FOR M-4/M-16'S!! If you ever see someone carrying one it was purchased on the civilian market.

    I think you are just toeing the "conservative" line that says our country has to allow everything that is involved with guns. Thats asinine. The 2nd Amendment says nothing of magazine size. Look, I don't think gun laws should change an iota based on this incident. However, I do believe large magazines (over 15 rounds) and Small Arms Protective Inserts for body armor should be outlawed for purchase on the civilian market. There is no practical application for any of it.

    If you think magazine size makes no difference, try something for me. Go buy an AR-15, get your buddy an 9mm pistol, and have him shoot at you while you try to reload. Thats what a criminal would encounter. Trust me, its not easy. We practice mag changes constantly when working up for a deployment. Guess what? I've still screwed them up while getting shot at. The more mag changes you make a criminal execute, the more likely he is to screw up and give cops a chance to maneuver/take a shot at him. Most civilians don't know to take cover while reloading, retain their magazines for future use, or have the skill to keep their eyes on the target while executing their mag change. Imagine if this guy would have only gotten off 15 rounds at a time. He's obviously a medical geek who doesn't even know how to clear a jam on his own weapon. Changing mags for him, with the amount of adrenaline he had going through his system, may have allowed cops (or even a civilian) to take him down. At the least, he would have become frustrated and maybe transitioned to his sidearm. That would have been much better than the AR-15 or shotgun. Don't buy into the party line of "all things gun should be legal".

    They want to make you register every gun.

    They want to make you be limited on how many you can buy, and how much ammo you can buy.

    They want to limit the size of the weapons you are able to own.

    They want to limit the type of weapon you can own.

    They want to limit the action of the weapons you own.

    They want to limit the type of stock on the weapon you own.

    They want to make it illegal for you to silence the weapon you own.

    Oh well, so much for "shall not be infringed."
    Maybe it's the first half of the sentence. Specifically, the part where it says "well-regulated."

    Pretty sure that the right to keep and bear arms is the only one mentioned that includes those words.
