Hoplophobes though... and ignorant as dirt about the thing you want to regulate... does seem that way a lot of the time. So many of you gun-control types are astonishingly ignorant about firearms and pontificate on banning this and that when you don't even know what you're talking about banning. You resolutely ignore that something like 99.98%+ of legally owned firearms are never used in a crime, that gun crime and gun accidents are WAY down and trending still lower, that so-called "assault weapons" are very rarely used in crime, etc.... that we can only assume it is an irrational fear, a phobia.
Not to mention I can't COUNT how many gun-control threads were started by someone using this penis-compensation bull****, or tarring us as brainless rednecks.... well you get what you give....

Please learn the difference between needs and wants, its a big distinction.
I asked you to quote me saying I needed one, which you failed at so you chose to quote the vote. But that vote reflects a want, just as I don't need one for sport but would like one.
EDIT: By the way, what was my lie? I'd love to hear you nail this one down.

If the Constitution guarantees our right to bare arms, then shouldn't we the people be given a fairly wide latitude as to what constitutes personal firearms? The more you cramp that freedom the closer you get to revoking it completely. And for what a little more perceived safety? Besides the techy in me being fascinated with weapons I think guns are an abomination. But in the world we live they are a part of reality and must be dealt with respect.

I guess you missed the very rational argument that if a city or state determines that 17 or 20 or 30 round magazines are suitable for civilian employees of that city or state to use in SELF DEFENSE than US OTHER CIVILIANS ought to be able to use them too for self defense
