    To answer your implied question, not your glib questions... I think the reason that gun regulation is such a popular subject is that there's an unending barrage of school shootings. It makes people want to do something about it, because most people don't like it when kids get shot.
    BOOHOO. I do expect to see you too bring this up with other people as well as just me.

    I'm not talking about taking away anyone's constitutional rights. "Regulated" is the third word of the second amendment.

    If we ban, say, magazines that hold more than 15 bullets, a whole bunch of factories would stop making them. They would he harder to find. Yeah, some would be made foreign and smuggled in. But a drop in the bucket. They would be hard to find. So we wouldn't have high school kids showing up at school with them. More reloads mean less shooting mean less dead kids.
    Gee, we need to ban matches. News flash, Arson is a crime. If you commit a crime you should be prosecuted. Only a moron would ban matches because some criminal abuses them. Do you want to ban cars because some people drink and drive? fewer than a fraction of 1% of guns are involved in crime. Why punish the 99+% for the acts of a small minority? Should a teacher make the whole class stay after school because one kid didn't do his homework? That is your solution, I think it is stupid.

    I think the reason for this is because almost every conservative male knows the benefits of self defense. Nobody would have an issue with guns if they were not misused.

    Some people just have irrational fears. Some people fear black people. Some people fear crowds. Some people fear guns. These people are mentally incapable of rational behavior. Those with irrational fears think others are flawed because they don't have the same fears. You can not reason with them they are not mentally capable of doing that. When you or I see a black man, we just see another person. When an irrational sees a black man, he sees a mugger. They are not capable of realizing all black men aren't muggers. It is the same with guns. When you or I see a gun, we think of hunting or target shooting. The irrational see a school shooter. These type of people need mental help but they are not smart enough to seek it out.

    Good post. The best way for people to get over a phobia is to be exposed to whatever they fear.

    Iím calling on all decent people to take a democrat to the range and have some fun shooting targets.

    OK I'll see you there DoUo

    To preserve freedom, some freedoms have to be surrendered.


    IMO, the right to own a gun is the biggest of them.

    OPPS my bad sorry. It was 3 1/2 years ago. The bill was brought to the floor by CT. sen. Chris Murphy (the truck load of guns loophole)and debated for about a week and voted on. Both houses passed it by a narrow margin.

    =Digger;1071527144]You think arson should be legal?
    WTF? Did he say that? If that's the case then everything he said is legal. NOT.
    I mean, why have any laws at all? Criminals are just going to break them.
    Do you obey laws? If not are you a criminal? I however obey them.
    I'm not talking about taking away anyone's constitutional rights. "Regulated" is the third word of the second amendment.
    No you're just talking about those constitutional rights being "infringed" the last word of the Second Amendment.
    If we ban, say, magazines that hold more than 15 bullets, a whole bunch of factories would stop making them.
    Do you have the slightest idea how many "high capacity" or standard capacity magazines are around? And a lot of people would be out of work.
    They would he harder to find.
    Most everyone that shoot ARs and AKs have between 2 and 2 dozen not to mention other platforms.
    Yeah, some would be made foreign and smuggled in. But a drop in the bucket. They would be hard to find.
    It would be significantly more than a drop in the bucket. They wouldn't be hard to find. To you maybe but not to us.
    So we wouldn't have high school kids showing up at school with them. More reloads mean less shooting mean less dead kids.
    Let's do some ifing. Okay how much damage can some kid do with a 15 round magazine at school? V-TECH, killing 32(33 counting the perp) people and wounding 17
    10 round mags for the .22 and apparently 15 for the 9mm. Reloading preloaded mags barring a fumble 1.5-2 seconds. I'm sure others do better.
