    Apples and oranges. You can't easily in mass grow or manufacture a high capacity magazine in your backyard or basement, thats why the war on drugs and prohibition was a total failure. There is a reason why LSD is much harder to come by than Pot or Meth is. LSD is difficult and complicated to manufactor, Pot can be grown in your basement and Meth can be made in your kitchen.

    I might need to pick one up. I have one of their handguns, not super happy with it, but have heard the carbines are nice.

    The reasons why prohibition doesn't work are the same, and unless you can convince all owners in the world to melt them down you're dealing with a product that is easily maintained and not consumed like drugs are.

    Would you own an assault Rifle? Why?

    I voted no, I have no need. Being afraid of one's own shadow, is the only reason I can think of why someone would have an assault rifle.

    It has nothing to do with nerves, and everything to do with stupid assertions.

    rather than assert that he has no basis to interject that argument
    why not explain for us why his proposal is unrealistic
