If you are in your house and have a break in you do not get the choice of how many or how well armed your opponents are. You have whatever you have and your level of expertise. It's one of the reasons I enjoy long distance hiking. I'm a good problem solver and enjoy a challenge. Miles away from roads or other people you have what you thought to bring and your own abilities and that's it. Many people have died out there with everything they would have needed to survive if they had know how to use it just as many have died who have plenty of knowledge but don't have the right equipment.

    So if you have a break in and you are out gunned you are at a disadvantage and may likely die trying to defend your family while waiting for the police to show up. The expression is "When seconds count the police are only minutes away". No, I'd rather have weapons that may seem excessive to you, warm and comfy in your parent's basement. I'm not taking that chance. If you want to go ahead, but I will not allow you or someone else to make that decision for me. Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Biden and Feinstein don't need weapons at all. They have security details to protect them with weapons we are not allowed to own to begin with. It's easy for them to tell us what WE don't need with a well armed securty detail to take care of them.
    Video game? You are the one trying to use high school fights as an example of deadly force encounters, get real.

    Again, if there are three badguys armed and dangerous with E-Vile intent for you and yours how many rounds in the mag isn't the 'savior'. You ignore reality to try and paint a scenario that doesn't work if you take just a minute to reflect on your opinion. In your scenario a shotgun works sooo much better than any pistol- the armed men attacking all at once in your home. You don't have to aim near as well and as fast as you can work the weapon means far more than with a pistol.

    Just how 'limited' a mag cap are you trying to claim will be the limit, last time it was 10 for a pistol. My home defense pistol holds 13. If I can't take care of business in 10 and need the last 3 I have done soooo many things wrong. Spraying rounds doesn't work near as well as aiming your shots. I have demonstrated that time and time again on the defensive pistol range where I run side by side with a 'cant miss fast enough' student.

    If you think a big mag makes you safer you should take your own advice and hide in your parents basement- I have long passed the age and been too many places hunting people pretty damn good at hunting back to hide in anyone's basement.

    Now unless you are a drug stash house the odds of three armed and deadly men kicking in your door in a Blitz attack are piss poor. The odds of some kook with a weapon coming after you is far lower than most politicians, period, so stifle the whine about them having armed protection. Gabby Gifford offended no one, was a threat to no one, she was a politician and that made her 1,235.48% more of a target than you or I, so can the I want what they have crap.

Is this "if you can't kill him in 8 shots", then you lose ?

    Lemme guess Sherlock. If you are a pharamicist, with a shop you built for 20 years, and some hoodie comes in to rob you, you need to be limited in your ability to defend, by either some absurdly governed clip, of as you say "your ability to carry lots of clips" ? Do you realize how liberally retarded, aka ignorant, your point was ?

    Such as you make me sick for the Republic.
    They always like to give armed robbers, and terrorists, a fighting chance. Limiting the ability for innocent people to respond makes it all seem fair to them.

    Bottom line is Im right and you are not.


    Hey Noodle... how many times you been on the wrong end of a gun in the hands of someone with ill intentions?

    Since apparently you're the expert on what people need and don't need, I figure it must be a large number...
