    They don't seem to get that if you're more heavily armed than the other guy, it actually reduces the odds of the other guy trying anything, all else being equal. Nor the psychological advantage that being better armed gives you if it does come down to shooting.

    I mostly use 30 round mags in my AK47, but I have a few short mags for prone shooting. Some times it's good to get down close to the dirt. What's your preferences, mag-size-wise, for the AK?
    I like the harder to find 20 round magazines

    I have a bunch of the arsenal bulgarian polymer mags

    the one advantage of the longer mag (other than capacity) is speed changes-I have a friend who was in the soviet naval marines and now works in a local gunshop (he's a US citizen now) and he has a neat method for doing a speed change on the AK rifles using the fresh mag to knock loose the seated one and its harder to do with a shorter mag

    shooting of a bench rest I use the five round "hunting" mags.

    the thirty round bulgarian and russian mags are as reliable as the shorter ones-not the case with say the M1 carbine or the M14

    Yeah I hear ya. I've got a couple 5-rounders for much the same reason. You know, I haven't seen 20 rnd AK mags in a long time... know where any can be had?

    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    I simply believe that being a law-abiding citizen, while owning a gun, is a good thing. If there's ever an instance when crime happens to me, my family, or anyone in my vicinity, I can pull out this gun and point and then, you know, pull a trigger and make a loud noise. Then, the burgler/whatever might fall and, in the process, it might prevent said lowlife from doing mean things like murder. Then, like, people would feel relieved knowing that their fate is no longer in the hands of a mean-like person.

    Right? Or is that not clear enough?

    Oh well. I'll leave you to your cell phone when you're being killed.

    Sorry, please re-read the Constitution. I believe that there is something in there about removing a tyrannical Government.

    If this is about a well trained militia - good luck. If the civilian population ever has to fight the government, the only hope in hell that they have is that the military takes their side, otherwise you're dust. No guns you have will stop tanks, aircraft, or heavy artillery.
    So you believe that the people are now powerless against the government? And how many of those soldiers do you think would fire? Also, what is your choice? Do nothing? Great.

    some of the ignorant think that people can stay in tanks forever or that those who run a fascist government are immune from a pistol shot to the head or a deer hunter's 30-06 a quarter mile away

    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    so where's that presidential push for gun control?

    keep waiting

    how's ms giffords?

    where's krugman, msnbc, the sheriff and the ed staff at the nyt?

    why did everyone FORGET?

    pray for the congresswoman, her family and all the others violated

    pray for the shooter and his family if your spirit is encompassing enough

Or is it that insufficent Mental Health Care of depression led these people to comtemplate killing themselves, and if it were'nt gun, it would be a filled bath tub, or a bottle of Tylenol, and cough syrup.

    Where have I argued that?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
