  •  The slide moving forward does that (0+ / 0-)

    on semiautomatic guns. The spring is necessarily stiff as it is being pushed back by the discharge. As the slide returns the next round is loaded. It sounds to me more like a backdoor attempt to prohibit semiautomatic firearms. They have been around for over 100 years.

      so be it, and still, if they keep the magazine small enough, and slow its replacement, no problem.

      I don't care if people can shoot 8 bullets in 1 second, then take 59 seconds to replace the magazine, or if people can shoot 8 bullets over 30 seconds and take 30 seconds to replace the magazine. Either way is fine.

      Semi-autos would still be fine, just not ones where the magazine can be replaced in seconds.

        if your proposed restrictions get them killed, will you volunteer to be personally liable for the outcome?  

        Somehow, I doubt you will.  Nor do I think for an instant that you'll let such a responsibility be placed upon government.

        I also doubt you'll allow such weapons restrictions to be placed first on police and government agents.
