And of course, when high cap mags are banned, no one will go out in their shop and make one. Better ban my band saw, TIG Welder, springs and sheet metal.

First of all.....Let's straighten out the idea that the Bushmaster .223 operates like a machine gun and I'm one of those who thought so until I did some homework.

It is a one pull, one bullet gun....just like ye old cowboy six-shooter. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

And please remember, these killers WANT TO KILL......It has little to do with the weapon. The backwards arabs are still using rocks.

One of the shooters at Columbine used 10 round magazines... he just made sure to carry 10 of them.

And its not like everybody doesn’t already have one or twenty of them. Anything done to try to control tactical black rifles and standard (high) capacity magazines is like closing the door after the horse has left.

SlideFire SSAR15 Stock. 900 rounds per minute. Perfectly legal and you can get ghetto full auto from an AR platform. Local gun range had one on an AR with a 100 round drum magazine. They were running around $150 but price has gone thru the roof lately.

You just have to hold it correctly to get the full auto effect.

Of all the government established gun free zones, public schools are the only ones that don't have security personnel. The way the law was written, even off duty LEOs can't bring their weapons to a school.

Another point on gun control. With a few mentally ill people committing murder against innocent strangers, their response is to restrict the legal activities of all U.S. citizens. This doesn't even address the loss of self protection with a gun ban.

We have drug cartels, using illegal alien labor, taking over a large portion of the interstate illegal drug trade. We could make that more difficult by just enforcing the existing illegal immigration laws, but the Administration won't allow it.

Sacajaweau,
“Correct me if I’m wrong” You are wrong. The original six shooter was a single action gun which required the operator to pull back the hammer with his thumb before a shot could be fired with his trigger finger. A semi-automatic (self loading) gun is functionally similar to a modern DAO (double action only) revolver which also fires one shot for each trigger pull. A revolver stores its ammo in a spinning cylinder and a semi-auto typically stores its ammo in a magazine.

It’s no wonder that many people are confused since the mainstream media just cannot seem take 5 minutes on Wikipedia to try understand the difference between full auto machine guns and legal semi-auto guns. If I hear one more talking head imply that machine guns can be easily purchased online with no background check I think my brain will explode.

Unless you have a supply truck full of ammo following you around, full auto is useless anyway. Or you are Rambo in a firefight and have the typical liberal audience that can’t count. I just shake my head at movie and TV shows that feature bottomless mags.

When I’m at the range & doing careful practice, my 30 round mag empties pretty darn quickly. Each time I pop one out I think, well, there goes another $15 or $20. Painful.

Which is why I spend most of my practice time with my 22. I have 10 round mags for my Marlin 795. I fill 4 at a time and do very careful target practice. 250 rounds are gone in no time.

We need some kind of government EBT card for ammo. Better use of the tax payer’s money.

May we have a make & model number, please?

The LE community is complaining that they can’t find ammo. Between patriots and Homeland In-Security all the ammo is gone.

As I recall in the past...

And to think, in 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emauell Cellar proposed the first federal law on common firearms.

1962; “We don’t want to take away your guns, we ONLY want to register handguns! Rifles and shotguns will not be affected”.

1964: “We only want to register all your guns, not ban them! Only Army surplus guns will be banned.”

1968: “We only want to register your guns, and ban “Saturday Night Specials” and small foreign handguns along with army surplus rifles!” (They got the ban on 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns and small foreign pistols)

1970: “We only want to ban Saturday night specials! large handguns and rifles will not be affected!” There was also a call at this time to ban all private possession of ALL GUNS.

1976: “We only want to ban all handguns! Long guns will not be affected!”

1981: “The NRA should give up their handguns, and they can keep their rifles!”- Lee Grant on GMA

1984: “We must ban “assault Rifles, unsuitable or hunting!”

1989: George Bush bans import of foreign made “assault rifles”.

1992: Assault rifle ban passed by Clinton.

2000: first calls to ban single shot .50 cal rifles...

More people will be killed in the first ten rounds than the last ten rounds of a magazine.

If the shooter of Gabby Giffords had used a six shot .357 mag she would be dead, the next person shot dead, and Judge Roll still just as dead, plus three others. Then he would have dropped that firearm, grabbed a second and started again.

Ever look at some of those old woodcuts of the Kansas border problems back around the Civil War? Notice that some of the men carry FOUR revolvers? That is 24 shots!

Reviews at rimfirecentral.com have all been positive. Plus the company hasn't gouged their prices like some others.

***High Capacity Magazine Ban for What?***

What do they have to debate with? We got the guns, they got nothing but threats and bluster.

Once we give up a few of our rights to own guns, mark my words, THEY WILL BE BACK FOR MORE!

“When men give up their FREEDOM willingly in the name of security, they soon lose even that degraded security.”
-Marcus Tullius Cicro

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither.” — Benjamin Franklin

I understand pulling back the hammer etc. and we agree...one pull = one bullet.

I'm 70 and we all had six shooters strapped to our sides. Wonder how many caps there were in those "high capacity" rolls we bought.

What a blast we had in our youth. We were realistic back then. Toy guns were for play. Real guns were for deer meat.

Modern Musket is apparently a brand name.

I suggest that it be used in place of assault weapon.

Gun Control addition - ban 3d printers for citizens. Must have a Federal license to own, operate, and use this printer.

I submit this question for consideration, “How many enemies of the US, foreign or domestic, criminals and/or tyrants may I shoot before I must reload and how rapidly can I shoot them?”

I say that there should be no limit other than that of the military pattern firearm technology that I now possess.

yep, the country is going to turn into an armed camp. This is the Balkenization of the USA. Just what Obama wants.

He and his minions are escalating this every day. IMO, they are trying to force patriots to use force so they can have their Reichstag fire event and loose the dogs of war on us.

Joe Biden is the point man for this provocation. They are setting us up for an event that will be used to clamp down on us and the country. The wheels are in motion and this is going to play out regardless of whether we capitulate or defend ourselves.

Herr Leader is going to issue some sort of EO to provoke the people. We do nothing, we lose our last liberties. We respond, well, DHS comes down on us hard. They aren’t going to drop it this time.
