I remember seeing an AR-15 style rifle from California that required a special tool or key to press the magazine release.
First thing I thought was: If that weapon has any malfunction that requires practically any manipulation beyond a "tap, rack, bang," the shooter would have to fiddle around with a special key and a loaded weapon just to remove the magazine and put the weapon back into a safe condition.
All just because some stupid gaggle of politicians, who know nothing about the weapon, were scared that somebody might actually be able to quickly change magazines after emptying the first. In reality, they just made it impractical and dangerous in an everyday situation, and for no good reason.

I think we're done here.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
This is from an actual scenario? A black thug was wearing a blue polo shirt? Seriously? OK, I'll play:
I carry an 11 inch KRISS blade <ahem> spring-assisted <cough> knife in my left rear pocket. I use my right hand to divert attention so the left hand can bury the knife in suspect #1. The screaming agony from suspect #1 should cause suspect #2 to run away. Then I'd call 911 and tell them to send the coroner.
HELPING HILLARY PICK OUT HER INAUGURAL GOWN!The jokes write themselves!
I'd presume the strippers had arrived.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
