    Turn it around. Why don't you need 30 rounds? People who ask that question take it for granted that there's something inherently evil about having a full capacity magazine. That's not so.

    I feel if a disaster has occurred natural or man made and if the fabric of society unravels, we may need to protect ourselves.

    Why 30 rounds? Well, why not?

    Why 25, 20, hell, why even more than 1? Let's just do zero capacity magazines, that'll be safe!

    How about the fact that one 30rd mag is easier to carry than two smaller capacity mags.

    why 30? there may be 29 in the "group". I might miss one.
    the reality is that if there are multpul, most people can count to 5,10 even to 15. 30 give you a higher shooting to reload time, if the SHTF that me be needed. it is not just home def, it is country too. but in that case snipe one and take thers.

    You know, I wouldn't be surprised if they outlaw 30 round mags for civilians AND the military. After all, we just don't understand those poor repressed Al Qaida types and we should be more empathetic to their whole social plight and....oh excuse me, I am going to be sick.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with this...I can think of a couple of rights that are limited/impacted/reduced by regulation.

    I don't have a problem without the right to have a M1A2 tank in my front yard. It gets lousy fuel effieicency.

    I don't have a problem without the right to have a mortar in my arsenal.

    I don't have a problem without the right to have my own RPG launcher.

    I don't have a problem without the right to have a M240 machinegun.

    Some regulations are not a bad thing, but when we restrict the possibility of protecting someone then we have a problem. Do you need a rifle to protect yourself while walking down the street? Probably not. Most crime you have to worry about is close quarters. Now telling me I can't own one, or regulating it so bad that I can't go plink is rediculous. I will fight just about any new regulations as I think the ones we have are fine. I will say that I have a problem with the gun show loophole, because I have no problem having my background checked. Not a one. I imagine most folks wouldn't either. Unless they are doing something illegal, or are on the fringe of society.

    I guess I could add more to this list of things we could restrict BECAUSE IT DOESN'T AFFECT ME.
    I personally don't want a machinegun. I can't afford the ammo. If you want to own one I have no problem with that.

    I would fight to protect your freedom. That freedom includes the right to do things that I don't necessarly agree with. Thats the price I pay if I want to keep MY freedoms intact.
    Once I have lost my freedom to do as i wish why would I care if you can't go do your plinkin?

    How about.........

    Here is something to think about with your father:

    This whole sort of discussion is kinda silly. (In fact the whole Clinton AWB was silly!) Mag capacity does not effect how deadly a weapon is. Regulating, flash suppressors, pistol grips, and barrel shrouds does not prevent crime.

    Discussion (and legislation) like this distract us from real issues. Things like taking steps to prevent crime, enforcing existing laws, protecting ones-self, and catching and punishing those responsible are far move valuable.

    Tell you father not to fall for "buzz" words that have no meaning and to look into real efforts to improve safety if it is something he has interest in.

    We can argue about how long an elephant's trunk should be, but it doesn't help when you have to shovel it's poop!
