I usually respond by saying that my guns, at least since I have owned them, have never killed a living thing, with the exception of a few blades of grass.

When I am target shooting, I spend a lot of time preparing myself, my firearms, and my ammunition. Once I am in position, why should I have to move before I am finished or ready? Every time I have to change magazines, I am moving the aim point of my firearm off of my intended target and removing my eyes from the sight line. It safer to keep the firearm pointed at the target for as long as possible and minimize any movement.

I tell people that I would like to have enough ammo on hand to stop all the gun grabbers who want to take my firearms and there are quite a few.

When it comes to firearms, a license or permit only ALLOWS us to own or carry a firearm. The SECOND AMENDMENT GUARANTEES that we CAN! We don't need to be ALLOWED to. Therefore licenses and permits are UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

If a 6'4", 280 lb. man forces his way into her home how many rounds would she like to have in her gun? Suppose there are two men? Last week a HoCo officer was shot and the shooter got away because the police weren't able to stop him.

It's interesting all the way around - as I see it, the media has done a great job of vilifying firearms, and specifically "assault weapons," which is completely incongruent with the fact that comparatively very little crime has actually been committed with them, so in effect there would be no real reason to try to ban them. And of course that doesn't even begin to delve into the complexities of our fundamental, enumerated, constituational rights.

I find it interesting that the people who decry 30 round magazines seem to be ok with the 333,964 legal abortions performed in the US in 2012 alone, and an estimated 55 million since Roe v. Wade. I also find it an interesting contradiction that most people, both liberals and conservatives alike, don't think too long and hard about the detrimental effects of alcohol and/or tobacco and all that is associated with that.

When we really stop to look at some actual serious problems, it makes me wonder why the media spends so much time on guns - they don't cause near the harm in either lives lost or money spent than cars, alcohol or tobacco.

Recently had a conversation with a lady – said she was a Republican and was pro-gun, she said she supports others right to own a gun, but did not own any herself and had no interest in shooting one – she went on to ask “why does anyone need a gun that shoots 30 bullets.”

I asked her what kind of car she drove, she said a “Lexus.” I said “why do you need a Lexus, why not drive a Yugo?” She responded “I can afford it, I like the comfort, it’s what I wanted and it’s my choice.” I said “EXACTLY, why deny someone their choice of firearm?” She looked at me like the RCA Victor dog and said “do you really need 30 bullets to kill someone?” I did not want to get in the complexities of “Defence against tyranny etc…” The conversation continued …

I’m looking for some good comments that will make sense to the ignorant as to why anyone would want or need an AR15 or standard capacity magazines.

Please no wise cracks I really want some subtle, informative statements that will make others think and perhaps persuade them to open their minds and alter their thinking.
The store owner in this robbery exhausted the 30 round mag in this robbery.

Do I need 30 Bullets to shoot someone?

Yes, I do! Anyone hopped up on PCP, Bath Salts, or whatever other cannibal creating drug out there is.

I want all the bullets I can find to bring down the filthy animal.
