(Talking Points Memo)   "It was... a good thing that [the Aurora shooter] had a 100-round magazine... If he had instead had... 15-round magazines, no telling how much damage he could have done until a good guy with a gun showed up." This is what the GOP actually believes   (talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 33

hillbillypharmacist: Someone really, really determined could kill dozens without even having a gun.


A man could combine his gymnastic pommel horse ability with ninjitsu and become virtually unstoppable.

That way you think you're really a bad-ass, when all you really are is a dumdass with a .223 that has a flashlight on it.

That looks like a lowered Honda Civic with a bookcase wing on the back and lots of stickers.


It's the white "suburban kid dressed like a gangsta" of the firearms world.

The Name: Hey, that's way out of line.  Only gun-grabbers need to cite sources in Fark gun threads.


Actually, everyone should have cites. Most don't - especially the side that equates owning a gun with having a small penis.

Fine. I'm all in favor of this representatives initiative to only sell magazines that are defective and jam regularly. That's what he's advocating, right?

If we make the magazines hold so much that they won't ever fire correctly, then no one will ever get shot. Bonus!

Do you think I'm new to this and your "nyah nyah you can't refute me" taunts mean anything?  I'm not wasting my time repeating myself or what others have posted just so you can continue to ignore it all and lob your own cut and paste grenades.  You are a shill from what I can tell, and probably a liar.

Stop posting, justtray.

Burning_Monk: udhq: Burning_Monk: udhq: sprawl15: spawn73: USA has less gun violence?

gun violence has decreased while ownership has gone up for years now

Gun crime as a percentage of overall violent crime is currently at a 30 year high.

Nope.

Yup.

If I'm seeing the chart right, it says Non-fatal Firearm Violence, and then calculates that as a percent of all violent crime. Why doesn't it take into account Fatal firearm violence?


Without looking at the chart you reference, I can only assume we need more target practice as a society.

That is the winner of all winners. A pity you don't actually win anything, but still... maybe subscriptions to 100 magazines of your choice? Except they'll screw up your order after the first twenty, so better move the amputee donkey porn right to the top of the list.

smells_like_meat: jbuist: Point: mag capacity has no real bearing on the severity of a mass shooting.

The only thing that lessens the severity of a mass shooting is the rapidity of an armed response.


It takes more guns to stop guns, but removing guns won't stop guns.

Gun nut logic. It only works in the way most convenient to the narrative.

unyon: Olo Manolo: If the magazine jammed (as cheap drum mags are bound to) then how exactly is he wrong? If the magazine fails it's more difficult to fix that jam than just drop the magazine and put in a new one. It wouldn't matter if he had 1000rd magazine if it  wouldn't feed, no matter how much more scary you perceive it to be...

If you can guarantee that every high cap magazine will jam, then I'm sure nobody would have a problem with those.


If they always jam, why would anyone want to buy one?  And why would you care if faulty crap is banned?

Where precisely did this slack jawed imbecile mention this hypothetical scenario?

I suppose if the Aurora shooter had been aborted, that would have been a good thing too.

Hmm, I wonder... Let's say we make 100 round magazines illegal, so the next nujob decides to buy an illegal one or construct his own.  I wonder if it's going to end up being more or less likely to jam than the commercially available 100-round magazines today.

I've never considered using poor craftsmanship as a way of expanding our purchasing options.  Can we let people buy cannons if they fail more than 75% of the time?  TNT if it fails more than 85% of the time?  Ricin so long as most of the batches don't really have much ricin in them?

factoryconnection: dittybopper: Actually, you don't even have to be all that determined: Happy Land Fire Guy was mad at his girlfriend, set the entrance to the club she was in on fire. Killed 87 people (girlfriend survived).

Yeah; those happen all the time and certainly represent the latest in building and fire codes.  That's why people keep bringing things up from the 50s and 30s and whatnot to show clearly that guns have no bearing on mass killing effectiveness.

Pretty weak for you especially.


I think you mistook the address, 1959 Southern Boulevard, for the year it happened, which was 1990.

Then too, we have the case of the 9/11 attackers, who used small knives.
