    To you, because a measure that only reduces needless deaths but doesn't stop them completely means we shouldn't try to reduce needless deaths? I think you are out of sync with where the majority of the public is at.

    To me I'd be impressed if you actually gave a **** about gun deaths and aggressively went after the 11-12000 deaths that occur in cities with typically strict gun laws rather than mindlessly dance in the blood of children to further a worthless political and ideologically driven goal. But that's just me. The fact that you mindlessly attack magazine capacity or scary weapons which you cant even define while ignoring the day to day reality (as well as ignoring your bans would accomplish precisely jack ****) pretty much says everything about you that I will ever need to know.

    So buy a ten round magazine. If you haven't taken down your attacker in 10 rounds, you should have been running instead of shooting.

    No worries, man. Since they already don't have a clue what an assault weapon really 'is' at least one of the gun banners has already said he is just fine with you using this...
    Remington R-25
    To meet the growing demand for a big-game AR-pattern rifle, Remington developed its R-25 to be chambered in .308 Win., 7 mm-08, and .243 Win. It then augmented that key variation with a host of design features, including a flat-top upper receiver and matching gas block that makes it easily adaptable to mounting optics, and six longitudinal flutes forward of the gas block that increase rigidity, reduce weight and enhance barrel cooling.

    Advantages: Among the best blends of accuracy, fast follow-up and light recoil in an AR that is chambered for three widely available short-action hunting cartridges suitable for deer and big game. The R-25's 20-inch ChroMoly barrel within its 39 1/4-inch overall length and 8 3/4-pound weight makes it light enough to tote and durable enough to take a pounding.

    As long as it isn't the ColtAR15 death machine. This .308 hunting rifle would do nicely.

    You fail again
    Gun nuts have been telling me for years that large capacity mags give no advantage to criminals or the deranged. They say it only takes 1 sec to change mags. They also say you can put high capacity mags on any gun. VanceMack told me that you could put a high capacity mag on your shotgun. So don't try to claim hardship.

    Easier, and a whole lot cheaper, to simply load only 10 rounds into the existing magazine. But that is not really the point, imagine requiring governors on automobiles to limit them to the maximum allowable speed limits. It is perfectly possible, and logical, to simply impose varying speed limits on the highways rather than to limit the maximum performance of all vehicles. If you are not committing a crime with your gun/vehicle, then what difference does its maximum capability have? Most gun crime does not involve the capability of the firearm but the use that it is put to by its operator.

    I can tell you anything I want as long as it does not violate the rules and since you are completely clueless about competitive shooting or self defense you have no concept what "hardship is"

    the purpose of magazine bans is to incrementally get rid of any weapon that can fire more than one or two shots

    first a limit of 10 than 6 than less than that

    any weapon that can accept a detachable magazine can hold dozens of rounds

    You KEEP proving the point. You blather and spout rhetoric about **** which you know nothing about. You parrot the 'evil assault weapon' rhetoric and then make allowances for high capacity rifles and these babies...

    more dishonesty-your dishonest choice does not exist. banning honest people from owning stuff does not increase public safety

    that was proven during the ten years of the clinton gun ban
