hardinparamedic: Fish in a Barrel: Look up thread at the context of his post.  He's responding to a post about the M1 Garand.  That has a fixed, internal 8-round magazine.

Ah. Touche.

When he said "magazine", I assumed he meant the Carbine, since the M1 Garand loads from stripper with en-bloc clips.


I'm just being a pedantic douche today.

CPennypacker: Giltric: CPennypacker: Giltric: CPennypacker: Giltric: CPennypacker: Giltric: It is up to the NRA to craft more gun laws as a form of compromise with the gun control crowd?

Would it be up to pro abortion groups to pass better restrictions on abortion?

WTF people?

I was under the impression that the NRA's job was to go batshiat insane and alienate 90% of the country. Was that incorrect?

I think they are referring to the Republicans, who are going batshiat insane too because they are in the NRA's pocket.

It is up to a civil rights group, of which the NRA is the oldest in the country, to fight to expand civil rights, not compromise and help further restrict them.

Why aren't the democrats compromising on tax cuts for the wealthy?

lol the NRA is a civil rights group.

It is better to be thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt.

If you really believed that you would have shut your mouth on December 14 and kept it shut.

Over an outlier?

What an outlier looks like to Giltric

I take it you don't really ascribe to that quote then


While sad and tragic, it is still an outlier.

Do you use emotional pleas when you are trying to get laid, or a raise?

I'm just wondering if the emotional angle works...or if people laugh at you when you use the emotional angle in other contexts.

cameroncrazy1984: Frank N Stein: demaL-demaL-yeH: Garands are exempt.

I find it hilarious that morons think "high powered military style semi-automatic rifles" like the AR-15 should be banned, but are fine with M1 Garands, even though the M1 is an actual military semi-automatic (not hurr duurr "in the style of") that chambers a significantly more powerful cartridge (30-06)

An M-1 also can't hold a 30 or 100 round magazine.

You wanna try that again?

funmonger: Adopt Canadian gun laws already. Sheesh.


Do you mean that the United States of America should implement a national long gun registry that runs substantially over budget, suffers from extremely low compliance and that is ultimately repealed due to a failure to show any resulting benefit?

Dimensio: Car_Ramrod: DrRatchet: Car_Ramrod: Granted I'm a bit slow, but why do they have to put a hold on the measure? Are they changing it to 6 or 8? What is happening? Why can't they still keep it at 7?

'Cause no one makes 7-round magazines, so this becomes a "back door" ban on all new magazine sales (at least until someone is arsed to design new mags for that massive NY market) and therefore a viable claim can be made in court that the law is overly restrictive.

But, couldn't they still make 6-round magazines? Or start making 7-round magazines?

Gov. Cuomo earlier suggested that 10-round magazines be allowed, but New Yorkers would be legally required to load no more than seven bullets into the magazine.  Lulz aside

Agreed, that's f'n stupid.

the problem with this is that it would only impact law-abiding gun owners (as the criminal elements would undoubtedly top-up) and makes obvious the fact that this law is not about reducing gun violence, but about making guns no fun to shoot.

Yes, laws only affect people that abide by the laws. Thank you for pointing out that concept. Why even have laws, amiright? People keep on murdering each other, why even make it illegal?

While comparing malum prohibitum laws with malum in se laws is a popular tactic of firearm regulation advocates, the comparison is still dishonest.


Uh, this is America. How about you talk in American, college boy.

Dimensio: Fortunately, the prohibition upon semi-automatic rifles featuring pistol grips or threaded barrels will be unaffected, as any educated individual knows that rifles with such features are inherently more dangerous.


Don't forget about the barrel shroud

It wouldn't be hard to turn 10 round magazines into 7's, just need a plastic filler at the bottom. You know, an easily removed plastic filler.

I heard the compromise being floated is that you can own a 10-round magazine, but you can't put more than 7 rounds in it.
