    They want a flat out ban on all mags over 10 rounds, no grandfathering. Who is going to pay for that? Is the government going to supply a 10 rounder for every extended mag? Better yet, if I have 4 G17 mags, that is 68 rounds they should have to provide me with 7 10 rounders. This is a stupid law proposal. I think we should ban computers from being possessed by liberal journalists - it makes as much sense.

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Ten rounds max should stop the bloodshed. Those wacky criminals will NEVER think of bringing more than one gun. Right? Hello? Is this thing on...?

    Jumpwing is right. Ten rounds max is more than enough. I propose we also do this for the military and police. This will encourage shot placement and effenciency. Think of the savings!
    I also reccomend some kind of legislation from Congress to enacted immediately. Do not wait. Just write it and pass it. We can always read it later.

    I look for that to happen sooner than later. Since my memory is so poor, what else was included in the clinton ban that expired, and could be re-installed??

    I notice these two writers are with prestigious universities.They must know what is best for us because they are ed-u-mu-cated I consider the source on the rare occasion I read rubbish like this.I wonder if either of them ever had a job that required work or sweat?Did they serve in a war?Were they ever homeless?What built their character,or lack of it?Why would their opinion matter?No offense to the OP or anyone with a college education.
    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    A high-capacity magazine in effect turns a semiautomatic firearm into a weapon of mass destruction.
    I know that Sadaam must have had high-capacity mags in his house...then Bush's reasons for an attack were correct.



    HELP! My Google isn't working properly...I can't find 31 round mags for my Glock anywhere (they do have 33 rounders available).
    Please Professor, do your homework.

    Angry

    And of course the criminals will want to do the right thing and turn in all their magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. What a load of crap !

    The talking heads.
    All they really care about is seeing their name on the credits to whatever tv show or newspaper that they spout off in.
    They already now that the public is so utterly stupid that they can spout any thing they want and get away with it, what they say doesn't have to be fact or even remotely resemble the truth.

    These highly educated idiots actually believe that 2 10 round magazines are better than 1 20 round magazine.

    The highly touted Brady Bill that the talking heads worship every morning died because there was not one single shred of evidence that anything other than law abiding people were affected. It did nothing for crime whatsoever.

    Many of us that kept up with it knew all along that it would do nothing but hinder the good people. The Brady Bill was doomed for failure from the start because it wasn't meant to fight crime, it was only meant to control and limit the general population. Those that dont follow the law are unaffected by new laws and only laugh at them because it makes being a thug easier.

    Anyone that is a proponent of the Brady Bill or mentions it as a model is the worst kind of fool because they cant even remember that it has been tried and it failed and it wasn't that long ago.
    Watch your local politicians closely. If they support any thing that even remotely resembles a Brady Bill or support any limitation on magazine capacity, then label them as a fool and unworthy of office.

    When the time comes, vote the idiots out and tell them why.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Does anybody else hear the faint hum of magazine manufacturing machines running 24/7? I'm waiting for the price gouging, too.

    True that.

    I don't know what prices were on the hi-cap mags before, but the Glock store has them for $62
