    not sure what he has because he locks his guns and is responsible. what i dont think the government should take away the rights that
    we have been given. we dont need less rights now jmho
    So blame the shooter. The shooter would have never got a hold of the guns had his mother been a proper gun owner and kept them safe. She knew that her son had issues ! So there is no need fo ra 100 clip, your father is hunter. So what your saying is I dont need a 100 clip, my father hunts and does need an assult rifle. Thats preety much par for the course from what I have been hearing. No rights have been taken away from you at all.

    every time someone destroys one of your emotobabbles you resort to speaking "for the country" for the masses, and appealing to the group think of the unlearned and the ignorant.

    its silly and worthless in debate and is a sign you have lost

    lets speculate since that is what you are doing. Nutjob son intends to kill mom and wipe out a school. Mom has the guns locked in a 4000 dollar safe that would take a professional safe cracker 3 hours to crack-and since that safe is alarmed, the cops would be there long before Willie Sutton breaches the lock. So nutjob son creeps on mom and puts a kitchen knife to her throat and tells her to open the safe or he cuts her throat.


    same result-and I suspect you'd be still whining about her owning guns.

    why do you people always bring up hunting-that has no more relevance than golf clubs. YOu are IN NO POSITION to tell others what they need for self defense. 100 round MAGAZINES tend to jam and the rifle in question was not designed (magazine release catch for example) to accept the Beta Mag. but it was designed to function with its STANDARD CAPACITY magazine which is was 30 rounds and that is what most police departments issue to their CIVILIAN employees for SELF DEFENSE against CRIMINALS in a CIVILIAN URBAN environment. Which means such rifles with 30 round magazines are just as useful for people such as me

    Re: NRA Newtown response

    Turtle,

    Since this did not happen and is nothing more than a start to a great fiction novel on your part. Lets state the facts. One her sonTwe had a full time special needs counciler in high school. Two his own brother has been qouted a number of time that his brother had mental disabilities. So for a gun owner to even have weapons in the house with some one that has a history of mental problems is not a responcible gun owner.

    You have got to be kidding golf clubs to hunting lol. Let me know next time when someone goes hunting or on a killing spree with a 7 iron. I have every much right as you do to tel others about self defence. Thats why! there are no need for 100 round magizines let alone 30, one could make the case for as little as 8. The ar-15 was never design as a hunting rifle niether was a glock. Your delusions on this subject are quite disturbing at best and are nonsence. So you need a 30 round mag for exactly what? Hunting, this self defence you keep going back to? Exactly what is the point. Police are the only ones that need these weapons and the military period. The idea that you need a 30 round clip silly.

    The point of the discussion about the NRA responce. The responce was made by an idioit that runs an organization who's sole excistance is to scare people into buying more guns period end of file. They did not start out that way, plus I think we are all going to see a change in the NRA really soon. More level headed members are going to start stepping forward and taking control back from the wingnuts in charge now. The speech that man gave was silly and a waste of time, had he any logical points he would have allowed questions. However, we all got a good look at the irrational behavior of the NRA leadership. thewhole point to the speech was blame everything else. Which has typically been the responce by conservatives for the last six years.

    why do you people always bring up hunting-that has no more relevance than golf clubs. YOu are IN NO POSITION to tell others what they need for self defense. 100 round MAGAZINES tend to jam and the rifle in question was not designed (magazine release catch for example) to accept the Beta Mag. but it was designed to function with its STANDARD CAPACITY magazine which is was 30 rounds and that is what most police departments issue to their CIVILIAN employees for SELF DEFENSE against CRIMINALS in a CIVILIAN URBAN environment.

    Which one of these weapons should be banned as an assault rifle?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No evidence? Now, you can say that you are too lazy to find the evidence. You can say that you read all the evidence but do not find it compelling. You can say you read the evidence but find faults as follows (inserting, of course, your relevant cites). You can say that you have read the evidence but just want to continue to believe what you believe. You can not, however, say with a straight face and intellectual integrity, that no such evidence exists, because it does.

    I didn't even read an article......

    I only thought about it because I was looking in to buying a Mini 14 for quite a while.
