        ...reason for the existence of large magazines for assault rifles, let alone the assault rifles themselves, is (wait for it):

        Profit for the gun industry!

    •  when my grandfather bought me my first shotgun (5+ / 0-)

      he plugged the magazine so it would be legal for waterfowl. He told me not to remove the plug because if you "can't hit something with 3 chances, one you aren't a good enough shot and need to practice, not shoot more; two it is now too far away to shoot and you are wasting ammo; and three, after 3 tries and the target escapes, it has earned its life.

      30 tries at one target?  OTOH I note a 100 round clip on auction this afternoon.    

    •  You should support the existence of the 2nd (6+ / 0-)

      It is the catch-all excuse for Kos members to act irrational and be rude to other members of the community. If it were not for the 2nd, telling someone to "suck on Magpul's dick" would be HR'd, but thankfully, the 2nd excuses all incivility of that sort.

      Every group needs a sub-group that can be sneered at and kicked around to make the majority feel better about themselves, and the RKBA community at Kos is proud to serve the liberal community by filling that role.
