    This is something I missed somehow, one thing that I remember from some of the earlier reporting was the man had used two hand guns and the Bushmaster was in the truck of his car. So if that was the case then should Feinssstinne not be looking to ban a hand gun that was able to drop a magazine or maybe a clip (sarcasm Intended ) then replace it in less than 3-5 seconds. Where would one looking for the actual truth look, it seems that none in the news media have the capabilities or desire to report exactly what happened in regards to anything.

    Man, I can't stand the rate/power of fire thing. How little is enough? One dead kid a second, every hour, year? Limiting power to vest-stoppable rounds, internal organ damage, or just bruising? So many of the arguments from that side imply the presence of a grey-area or sliding scale that "demands complicated solutions", when in fact the answers are clear; the tools have nothing to do with the intentions of the attacker, and can therefore not be a solution in stopping them.

    There is no acceptable minimum for bullet capacity used for murder, nor rate of fire, nor power. Both we and they know this, so to compromise with them on this justifies the anti's position and cements their gains. Shame on NY Republicans for making the deal with the devil that they did, instead of either stopping them or forcing them to pass completely unhinged laws that would have published all gunowner's addresses. As bad as that would have been, it would have resulted in the dismantling of that database under federal court order within the year under an extremely vehement Equal Protection ruling.

    To sort of paraphrase even price:
    anything they can't control is a threat.

    In Michael Moore's way of thinking, "What would Fidel Castro do in our situation?":confused:

    J M Davis had some 20,000 firearms. He must have been worse than Hitler!

    The primary goal for most national media is to instill fear of guns and gun owners wherever possible. That is why they continue to ignore facts about firearms and refer to any collection of things related to firearms, including users manuals, as "arsenals". The only way to change this is to effectively counter educate the people that there is nothing more unreasonable about collections of arms and ammunition than Jay Leno's collection of cars if kept and used responsibly

    Reporting a fact that is germane to a news story means that owing multiple guns makes us bad people? Wow, people love to play the victim.

    Wonder what the will think if they knew I just bought 1,000 rounds of 9mm. Yep. Got my one box of ammo this morning from Academy. Being first in line means first choice and today was my lucky day. They also had bulk 45acp. Sure a couple of boxes but better than nothing.

    ObamaCare changes everything.... with the stroke of a pen things that were just things have become unhealthy and subject to the CDC and health insurance because it supposively increases the risk.

    And yet, states like CO have passed legislation to control people who own guns but have given the okay for marijuana use in small quantities. Using this comparison, it is okay to have a 10-round magazine because that is for recreational use. It seems that from a government perspective, it is okay to kill people with automobiles and trucks, but not a firearm.

    This is true. The uninformed media is a threat usually because they also subscribe to the anti-gun agenda. They either don't know what they're talking about, or they do know and count on the sheeple audience to believe their lies.

    The disappearance of honest, unbiased journalism in this country is maybe the biggest threat to all of our freedoms.

    Just as big a threat to our freedoms IMO are the millions of city folks who have never been around guns and don't understand the culture because they don't get any info about guns except from the biased media. They form their opinions based on what they hear and vote accordingly. It's the same threat we face in all political issues - Low Information voters. It seems they also lack the ability to know when they are being manipulated, or at least to know when they ought to look around for some more info.

    I can't imagine how I would be perceived in the press if they piled all my guns, ammo, and assorted reloading equipment, etc on those big tables they always use to show what a terrorist they just arrested. In that sense, we have to put some blame on the various law enforcement agencies who always pull this stunt for the press to make themselves look good (even if they know the person was no real threat). That's being just as dishonest as a lying newsman or politician.

    They also don't understand how expensive of a hobby it can be. I think for the thwarted shooter at the college in Florida, I saw a news report that said (something along the lines of)

    "he had an arsenal with over $700 worth of firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition."

    Maybe someone could define "Gun Culture" for all of us. I own a car, Mark Martin owns a car (or 3). So far as I know, we don't share a secret handshake or much else so far as I know and a survey of those who know me wouldn't likely find me labeled as part of the "Car Culture". Owning common items does not mean all owners are cast alike. Different attitudes, abilities, capabilities and uses. Should be simple for a media that can separate criminal drug users into medicinal, casual, recreational, edible, addict and all other sub-classification with the exception of illegal...

    :evil: No, it doesn't make you a threat. It makes you and a friend a threat. :neener: This is crazy, more than one gun is owned by most firearm owners. Does having more the one child make you a threat? By God, you could be breeding an army! To quote the great Forrest Gump"stupid is as stupid does"!
