Nothing short of taking every firearm away from every private owner will stop a crime like this because the shooter killed someone for their legally purchased/owned weapons and used them in a criminal act.
What's with all this talk about banning high capacity magazines? Will that really prevent any shooter from filling his pockets with extra mags? Or how about this, having an illegal mag?
There seems to be quite a few anti's building up post counts lately...
@ Ogien - Do you concealed carry or do any carrying for self defense? Because if you do, and I'm honestly trying to be respectful here, you need to go find some good training classes and take at least one or two.
I'm saying this because it's obvious that you have never really trained with a firearm for any sort of defensive scenarios. It's nothing to be ashamed of, but I highly recommend that you go take some classes and then revisit your idea that "I only need 3 bullets because if I need more than I have no business carrying a gun. Nobody is going to have a mega-thousand round shootout with anyone and to think otherwise is simply living in fantasy. 99.9% of firefights last only a few seconds anyway." I think you'll better understand why that sort of mentality is A. Incorrect and B. Dangerous.
Actual training will give you some perspective on the dynamics of stress as well as your personal ability and I'm sure that you'd benefit from those perspectives, because they will help you understand that you don't prepare for the best case scenario, you prepare for the worst case scenario.
Sorry, there were no such executive orders. Those anti-gun presidents simply told the BATFE to outlaw importation of certain guns under the "sporting purposes" clause of the GCA 1968. This tactic was first used by the mythical "gunowners champion", Ronald Reagan, to ban two shotguns from import.Quote:
Bush and Clinton both used Executive Orders to expand bans on importation of "assault weapons", that ain't how it goes.
Those two shotguns were decreed "destructive devices" by the BATF. The BATF simply told importers to cease importing those guns.
