    I think a lot of people are against "high capacity" magazines because they have them confused with "extended" magazines for pistols, such as the one used in the Tucson shooting. It needs to be pointed out that a 15-round magazine is the "small" magazine for the M1 carbine, and a 20-round magazine is a "small" magazine for the AR-15, with 30-round magazines being commonly used in both cases. Many common handguns were designed for 15-round or greater magazines. And here's the clincher -- there are millions and millions of such magazines out here. A prospective ban on these would do little but slightly drive up prices (once the panic subsides). A retrospective ban -- well, good luck with that.

    well, it would turn millions of us into instant criminals, if there's no ''grandfather'' clause.. But I think that's the point. I think they want to.

    I think Billy here has a really great explanation on why the labels used in this discussion (attempt to scare people into relieving themselves of their 2A rights) are so important. Accuracy and honesty is important. VITALLY IMPORTANT.

    I'm not sure how much good talking common sense will do, but my hope is that it will help some to see the light who might otherwise side with the gun-grabbers.

    I will wait for Biden's recommendations and what legislation is introduced. The rest is just noise.

    True that. We "including myself" sometimes assume that more rational minds will prevail", usually not so.

    The term "assault rifle" as used in the context of my post was coined by Josh Sugarmann to describe a semi-automatic rifle with cosmetic appearances and features which made it "ugly" and appear as though it was a military shoulder arm.

    And yes, I am familiar with the Sturmgewehr rifle. It was this rifle that Kalashnikov modeled his AK47 after.
