    A#1) No.

    A#2) No.

    You chose Japan as the analogy. Japan allows virtually no guns. That is not what is on the table here.

    Further, as I crudely noted, all of Japan's crime rates are hugely lower than ours. Their society is in nowhere near the state of moral decay that ours is.

    Want to take a guess as to their rate of "flash mob" crime ? How about arrests for playing "knockout" ? Those crimes have nothing to do with guns.

    Takes one second to change clips. Magazine size is a political red-herring. Not the only one, btw.




    There were far less school-shootings per capita.

    A few other differences as well ..............

    It's how Jared Loughner got stopped...

    Woman Wrestled Fresh Ammo Clip From Tucson Shooter as He Tried to Reload

    Unforunately, he had a high capacity clip so he got of 20 more rounds than had he had a normal clip before he had to change.

    Personally, I do not think more restrictive gun laws are needed in the US. Schools really are pretty safe, and I think that freedoms come with certain costs inherent.
    I don't know the answer for sure (does anybody?), but gun violence in the US is staggeringly high.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Japan, at one time, was a world wide criminal. The same is true of Germany. Sheer force showed both countires the error of their ways. There is a lesson there someplace.

    Again, its a red herring. Are you seriously arguing between a 20 round clip or a 30 round one ? My own experience was to always prefer the standard 20 round one as the 30's were far more prone to jamming, btw. We would tape 3 of the 20's together though

    "How hard is it to spot a marijuana farm?
    How hard is it to spot a gun manufacturer?

    And excuses are still excuses.

    Because they are fun to shoot.

    Why would homo butt sex be needed as it cannot produce babies.....

    And... Assault Rifles are already illegal (As Redress pointed out). Semi Automatic guns in general, whether they be rifles or pistols, only fire as fast as the person who can squeeze the trigger each time a bullet is fired.

    I don't think you quite understand the details of a topic you are trying to debate.


    Which is the problem for most people debating FOR gun control.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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.

    Jared Loughner used a Glock 19 which held 15 rounds with it's factory magazine. The high capacity clip allowed him 31 shots before reloading.

    If that is your belief, you can hardly claim hardship if they are banned.
