    It is truly sad when people can't get their freak fully on.

    Ever notice how the gun huggers often want to claim that the rest of us base our desires for sensible gun control simply on 'fear'?  No rational reply, just an insult to our what, our 'manliness'?   We're wimpy little cowering critters if we want to outlaw extended gun magazines for personal use?

    •  I dont think you all base it on fear of guns (0+ / 0-)

      i think most of you base it on fear of brown people/poor people.

      Personally i dont care about magazine capacity. Because it's meaningless. On an m16 i could change mags in under a second if i had one ready. Thing about you gun controllers is you dont know a damned thing about guns. Which is why you pushed through the laughable fetishist "assault weapons ban" which.. basically banned some trademarks.

      Voters will choose a person who fights a losing battle for his principles over one who fights winning battles against them every time.

      •  Uh huh. (0+ / 0-)

        Here's the thing, mr speed champ.  Most people who go out and murder folks actually aren't hard core gun fetishists.  They can't 'change the mag' in under a second.  So who the hell cares if you're fantastically fast at changing magazines?  You're not planning to go out and massacre folks.  The nutjob down the street is, and he's too busy fantasizing about his lucid dreams to focus enough to train to change magazines quickly.  Magazine capacity is 'meaningless' to you, not to him.
