for some reason it bugs me when sanctimonious fat asses that don't know a single thing about firearms or tactical shooting situations figure they can decide how much ammo I should carry. F em all

if you have a pistol permit or you’re carrying a gun because you work for Wells Fargo and you’re taking money in and out of a bank or something, two or three or four shots should be enough—period

One bullet to be carried in the pocket is all you get

Three thoughts:

1) You first, Jabba. Limit the Capitol Police and you other guards to the same 2-4 round limit you propose for your employers.

2) This is part of the usual anti-gun distraction that the 2nd Amendment is about hunting or self-defense. It isn’t, it IS about defending our liberties against power-tripping statists like YOU. For that, we need full capacity magazines (not “clips” you fat moron), since you and your ilk have the resources of a national army and several police forces at you disposal. In other words, it is about resistance to tyrants like you.

3) Molon Labe!!!

What a brain dead stupid statement. We just read about the lady that emptied her revolver on an intruder, and he was still able to run away.

Had there been more than 1 intruder those 6 shots would not have been enough. This POS needs a dose of reality. I wish someone could shut him up. I am sick of hearing and reading about his brain dead stupid comments.

He is full of s#*t.

Before my unfortunate canoe accident where I lost all my guns, I’d keep two MagSafe rounds on top to lessen the chance of others, in the room or house over being shot if I missed or there was over-penetration.

After that, if I needed to keep shooting, my next 10-13 rounds had a bit more punch. If I was limited legally to only four rounds I’d skip the MagSafes without a doubt.

Regarding the photo of Nadler in post 32, consider that wild hog hunters had to develop special bullets to penetrate the fat/hide shield on said hogs.

Take a look at the penitration data at BrassFetcher and it will become clear that Nadler has had his snout in the taxpayer supported CongressCritter feeding trough so long that he has developed an abdominal fat shield which any boar hog would envy.

Soueeeee! Here, Pork, Pork, Pork!

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. “

Hmmmm....I guess 2 - 3 shots per gun is sufficient for the people to maintain security of a free state?

He is an idiot.

Nadler couldn’t waddle up to his own mailbox, much less hunt.

This fat-ass would starve if he didn’t have someone to go to the grocery store for him.

These idiots have obviously never HEARD of wild dog packs.
Hunters must consider the possibility of wild dog packs while hunting IF they have any sense at all. A good hunter prepares for anything in the wild—But, you can’t expect pansy-assed elitists to understand that.

Pansy-asses! There ought to be a bounty on them.

Hey Nader, tell that to the Korean’s who defended their neighborhood from thugs in the LA riots. If they didn’t have their semi-auto military styled guns and high capacity magazines they would have had their neighborhood looted, robbed and burned down. They would have had their women raped and beaten, their children beaten and murdered and they themselves would have been robbed, murdered or beaten.

Look at how the survivors of Katrina were using their legally owned guns to defend themselves from the criminals and criminal cops who turned feral after the hurricane. Then some ahole libtard government fools rounded up all the legally owned guns and left the criminals in charge.

Any politician who wants to round up my guns needs to come and get them themselves. Don’t be sending in the cops or SWAT. Don’t be ordering it done by the National Guard or the Military. Do it yourself cowards. COME AND GET THEM.

I bet you don’t get mine. Not until you’ve shot me dead.

I’ve already had a talk with my wife about how I’m going to deal with this. She doesn’t like it, but she knows I won’t back down.

LOL. This from a supporter of the Obama Administration which made sure that drug cartels got real assault/military weapons.

Why should the drug cartels get more powerful guns than law-abiding citizens. Let him show us- shut him up in a little shanty on the border with a couple of derringers and invite the drug cartel to a little contest.

You are spot on as they think the old musket balls were for militia drills. They have no concept that the early settlers came here to escape governmemts that had taken their guns and then made them subservient to the rulers(GOV). They liberal media thinks that a Thanksgiving dinner came from the farmer who raised Turkeys. They have no idea that musket balls were the means to put meat on the table or even that Turkey. This militia BS and sport hunting is all liberal propaganda as our founding fathers already knew we needed the right to bear arms to protect ourselves from governments who went too far.

You just said it’s not about self-defense yet is about defending ourselves, which makes no sense. It is about self-defense, purely and simply, whether that be against muggers, foreign invaders, domestic insurrectionaries, or tyrannical government.

Speaking of bank heists, is Nadler aware that when the James Gang robbed a bank up here in Northfield, MN, it was regular folks with their own guns who happened to hear the ruckus and waylay the rascals? Did they only have four shots each? Probably not.

That was the first thing I thought of. She shot him FIVE times, including in the face, and he still walked away! God I hate these goons who have small armies of private security presuming to pretend that they think “the little people” have no need of real, feasible self-defense. I wish someone would ask him how many rounds each of his security people carry.

Two shots might be enough, or maybe four, or maybe four more. It never happens like you imagine it. The imagined rapist turns out to be a gang of rapists. How many shots do you need then? Six is a good round number, fills most cylinders on most revolvers, but sometimes there are seven or eight thugs hanging out where you must walk. Figure that the products of leftist culture, drug addicts, gang bangers, hip hopping thugs, union thugs, Democrats are often so crazed one bullet won’t work, and where two are needed, three are better, so the magazine that holds the most is the best.

We have some deep forests around us - with three large packs of coyote/wolf hybrids. A couple years ago a hunter killed one that weighed in at 90 lbs. None of us lose sight of our homes unless we’re carrying a scary black rifle with several mags.

“Well, actually... “Did New York State Just Accidentally Outlaw ALL Firearms?””

Don't think it is accidental. I haven't clicked on your link yet, but I did read the whole law and there isn't a gun that will stand up to that law. The guns that people already have are going to be registered and if you have more than seven cartridges in say, a 10 magazine, you are a criminal right now so take out three cartridges. Totally ridiculous.

This nutsy Representative should never have a guard unless that guard has less than 8 cartridges but this guy says 2, 3, or 4 is enough. We have idiots for some leaders.

Well, let's see. FBI standard for minimum penetration of projectiles is 13".

This is needed because not every shot hits directly in front or back of the body, and you may hit an arm on the target's side. Thus, the bullet must be able to penetrate 13" of flesh and bone to reach vital organs and blood vessels.

Knowing that, I don't think there is anything in a pistol caliber, or even many small- and medium-caliber rifle cartridges, that would be approved for use on a Nadler.

The “or” in that sentence of law at your link means there is something following that is also unlawful and that is (12), fails to register a gun the person already has. So, the person becomes a criminal if he/she doesn't register the gun he/she has now. The person is on a slippery slide to being a criminal if he/she doesn't register EVERY gun he/she has.

I think if that governor was in Texas we would bury him head down (should he die of natural causes of course) cause there is nothing in his head. He has probably never been to Texas to see freedom/liberty/gun carrying at work. And, you can buy as big a drink as you want and eat a triple decker cheese/hamburger/French fries/onion rings, at the same time. And, we sell heartburn medicine including Pepto Bismal in every drug store and grocery store. And, we have great hospitals for by-pass heart surgery and new hearts if you need that.

Come down to Texas and have a life - get out of that hell hole up there.

Dear idiot Nadler,
No one ever wants to use a gun to protect their life or the lives of those around them.

If you have to use a gun to protect life there are very few rules but one must follow them to survive.

#1. Shoot First

#2 Shoot Most

#3 Shoot Best

#4 Survive

Who in the he11 do you think you are to be telling everyone what the limitations are in protecting their lives???

What an arrogant a$$ you really are. Have you ever been in a situation where you had to pull a trigger to defend your life or a loved ones life??

Arrogant POS who just knows it all..... And by the way My rights are granted to me by the constitution and what you think doesn't count at all.

“Wow, excellent point. I think I must be gettin old now, I am not aware as I should be of all these new vices people are into it would seem.”

No, Chris, you must have a life, and I don't, that's why I know all this stuff. I have the news on all day and switch from Fox to CNN, and the weather channel, and I read news on my laptop computer.

I heard the first report about that school shooting when they didn't know what happened. I followed that all that day and the next day.

I've read about every bath salt zombie that has happened. Oh, I forget to tell you, they are all nude. I think the bath salt chemical makes their skin sensitive to anything touching it, so they take off their clothes. More of these have happened in Florida than any other state.

I hope you have a good life going, and I'll bet you do.

Ah I am in Florida too. I shall have to keep an eye out for these naked zombies.

Worst things I have encountered around here so far were some unattended pit bulls while walking my dog, they got the pepper spray, and some pigmy rattle snakes under the tree in the garden. They got the shovel.

Far as my life goes, I just try to maintain simplicity, peace of mind and freedom. So far so good, but the news of late has me greatly concerned I must say.

Take care, Marcella, and God Bless.
