Yep, and this idiot is why so many of us out here are afraid of gun owners.

Popcorn Johnny: It's a clip, dumb ass, magazines are for reading in the waiting room.

Just FYI, 90% of us don't really give a fark what its called. Its a bullet holding thing.

doosh: He prolly stashed it in there to hide it temporarily but, more interestingly, how did exploding bullets manage to punch through a clip, a wooden case and through the oven door?? It's my understanding that a bullet tossed into a fire isn't particularly dangerous. The bullet needs a barrel to make it speed forward otherwise the round just pops. Those fragments in her chest I bet were from the case and not the bullet and I just can't see how those pieces busted through all those barriers.

Storing firearms in ovens is a pretty stupid thing for someone to do.

A cartridge tossed into a fire isn't really all that dangerous -- the bullet is (usually) much more massive than the powder and case, so the powder burns, expands, and the case pops off at relatively low velocity while the bullet itself doesn't move much. A cartridge (or a bunch of them) stored in a magazine may be more dangerous, as the casings have nowhere to go and many magazines don't allow for the bullet and casing to separate -- it certainly seems plausible that pressure in the case could build up to the point where it explodes with some force. Combine several exploding cases and the magazine body itself could fragment. It'd be interesting to see how feasible this really is (under safe, controlled conditions, of course).

jso2897: Gun-fappers like to think that their petty technical expertise about boring details of guns make their social and political opinions about them somehow more valid - just another example of how they aren't very bright.

The magazine/clip debate has been going on forever and is ultimately pretty meaningless, I agree.

However, when you have legislators who don't understand the basics of what they're trying to regulate (such as the difference between "automatic" and "semi-automatic" firearms and Carolyn McCarthy's famously incorrect description of a barrel shroud as "the shoulder thing that goes up") then its not unreasonable for people to get annoyed and conclude that the legislators don't understand what they're talking about.

I don't expect politicians to be expert mechanics in order to be qualified to make laws about driving and roads, but I do expect them to at least have some basic understanding about how cars work and are used before passing such laws -- you'd rightfully conclude that a person is uninformed if they called a wheel an "engine" or referred to a compact car as a "semi-truck". Before mandating that all cars have anti-lock brakes or debating the merits of such a law in Congress, you'd expect them to at least understand the basic concept of what anti-lock brakes do ("They detect if one or more wheels has locked up while braking and automatically adjust brake power to that wheel in order to minimize locking, improve steering control, and prevent uncontrolled skidding.").

I don't expect them to be network engineers to pass laws about telephone networks or the internet, but they really should have a basic understanding of how the telephone system or the internet works. Same thing with guns.

Without a basic understanding of a topic how could one be expected to have an informed discussion on it or pass effective laws?

Idiots like this are the reason there is an anti-gun movement in this country.  I won't get into the politics or the 2nd amendment but, morons make it easy to find bad press on anything.

propasaurus: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Homes with guns are 12 times more likely to have household members or guests killed or injured by the weapon than by an intruder.

Obviously we should ban household members and guests.

And when you subtract suicides and purposeful homicide it makes a much less brainwashy talking point.

Well by all means, keep guns out of your household then! If you see a gun in your home as a threat to the occupants then don't have a gun!
And what happened to 43:1? Didn't hold up to any scrutiny? I wonder how 12:1 will do. Poorly, I'd imagine.
