    please, tell us what HARM these regulations would cause.




    yeah magazine limits cause harm to those of us who are competitive shooters and constantly replace magazines

    my cost for my IPSC open gun went from 25 or so a mag in 1993 to 140 a mag or so in 1997

    a limit on purchases infringes on my rights. I often buy two handguns together for competition, one as a back up

    why should I wait

    background checks are fine-with dealers

    the only way to enforce them for private citizens is complete gun registration


    now your turn

    how is a magazine limit going to stop a criminal from getting one and what number do you want and what empirical studies prove those limits are valid

    and since bad guys are not allowed to BUY ANY GUNS A MONTH why should I be restricted

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    The burden is on restrictionists to explain why their proposed infringements on our rights will do any good. and even if they can prove that they still haven't won the argument because we can still claim that freedom trumps public safety (miranda, gideon innocent until proven guilty are all examples)

    but unless the restrictionists can prove a high probability of their proposed restrictions increasing public safety they lose

    there is NO OTHER ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF RESTRICTIONS

    and right now there is NO EVIDENCE whatsoever supporting those restrictions

    and as I noted we have other arguments in addition to the public safety ones.

    the anti gun side does not

    oh, I thought you were talking about REAL harm. My bad.

    ...a limit on purchases infringes on my rights. I often buy two handguns together for competition, one as a back up

    again, my bad. I logically assumed you were talking about REAL harm, not inconvenience.


    ...background checks are fine-with dealers

    first thing is to require them at ALL gunshows.

    how to enforce them with private sales, is another bridge to cross.

    more idiocy. any infringement is real harm


    the burden is on you to prove your restrictions have a benefit

    not on me to prove the opposite

    limiting handgun purchases to one per month, will put a serious dent in all the straw gun-purchases that are made around the country.

    it will put a serious dent into the livelyhood of criminals who buy lots of handguns in one state and sell them to murderers & rapists in another.

    sorry, but the inconvenience to you that would be caused by only being able to buy one handgun per month, is inconsequential compared to the possible damage this could cause to criminal gun-sales....and the reduction of gun crimes this might cause in major cities.

    does anyone honestly believe that gun crime is what really motivates the far left when it comes to guns.

    sorry faith based arguments without evidence don't cut it. multiple purchases are already reported to the ATF
