    Saw this article on www.awbansunsetcom and I had to write in.

    Assault weapons hot topic for debate


    my reply...

    His reply

    Somehow I doubt I will be getting any magazines in the mail from him, although I have considered writing back and giving him my address. I just don't want to be too over the top. Maybe it will sway him a little but I doubt he read it over more than just once while shaking his head. I tried. :fire: You guys think it was too much at once?

    I guess if for some reason 10 rounds dosen't stop the guy(s), or because you're under so much stress that you miss a few times, you deserve to die. :rolleyes:

    Deavis: that was very well written response, esp. because you pointed out what he got right. Which was a lot, besides the 10-rd cap thing.

    May I steal your blurbs about the 10 rd capacity in any future letter writing I do?

    I saved the entire exchange to my hard drive and will undoubtedly plagiarize from your statements in the future.

    Great work.

    :D

    You could put one in the chamber & then top off the magazine again giving you 11 :neener: :D .

    Seriously, good reply to the article. Thanks for fighting the fight.

    Lets say for a moment that he's right ... that you and I and every other law abiding gun owner out there has no legitimate reason for >10rd magazines; What is the good solid reason for banning them?

    If having 3-5 more rounds isn't necessary for self defense then how does having that 3-5 more rounds make it that much more effective for crime?

    Lets not also forget the constant argument that all you "need" is about 1500-2000 calories a day, some water and shelter from the elements but that doesn't make it okay to outlaw everything else in existance.

    The burden to prove need is not on us. What proof does the government have of a compelling need to impose even the slightest restriction on a basic, expressly Constitutionally-protected, human right? That is the question.

    A criminal is going to misuse 5 rounds, while your average citizen wouldn't misuse 100.

    Thanks for the replies and please feel free to use any of what I wrote. If you improve on it, send me a copy so I can use it in the future as weel :)

    I just hate it when I hear the words, "what do you need that for?"

    Why is it any of your darn business?

    I wouldn't want to give the impression that I was some sort of wacko who actually prepared for the worst and had a round chambered in my carry weapon! After all, we all know that in the movies you have to chambver the first round in your gun and then listen to it make all sorts of clikcing and clanking noises as you place it on target. :rolleyes:

    I wanted to include a part where I showed how much time a 15 round mag saved me when I go target shooting but I thought that might be over the top. I figured out when I go I have either 100 mag 10-round loads or 67 15 round mag loads for my 9mm. I timed it and found that getting the 14th and 15th round in my new regular capacity magazines, formerly known as evil highcaps, that I could only save a few minutes overall :mad:

    Then again, I only have to shoot two mags over my chrony instead of 3!

    I never quite got why the media didn't put more attacks on the higher capacity mags being available. If anything in theat ban made sense, that would be it.

    I always use the argument that most mass murderers who go on a killing spree reload several times during their crime. This includes handguns, rifles and shotgun cases.

    That usually gets a little light bulb if the person is at all open minded.
