I'm sorry. I don't care if you're a liberal or a conservative you should be VERY scared at the fact that this guy takes over if something happens to the president.

I'm a gun owner. I do support registration and background checks. But that is not the whole problem. Mental healthcare in this country has declined at a terrible rate. Sure they talk about it but it needs to be pushed to the forefront and be worried about just as much if not more than the gun control laws they're salivating over.

I have a 12 yr old nephew. He is prone to violence and has pulled knives on people. His mother is pretty much a worthless cause. But when the police are called and he's hauled to the hospital, he's released shortly thereafter as if nothing happened. Sadly I can see him becoming very dangerous in the coming years if something isn't done to keep him and similar people hospitalized to protect public safety.

If I'm a fool, so area the 52%+ of Americans who want magazine restrictions, and the even higher majorities who want background checks.

@FoolsPrussia: 75% of Americans believe in "aliens from outer space".
And 84% believe JFK was killed by MULTIPLE shooters. NOT a "lone gunman". NOT the "Warren Commision Report".

Did you have a point to make? Thought not...

Typical Democrat. They are self-righteous, hypocritical idiots. Unfortunately, Obama's Downs Syndrome makes Biden look like a genius.

He tells her "Honey you just fire that shotgun and every secret service agent within earshot will be there in seconds"."And if they aren't you probably just shot them because there shouldn't be anyone but them out there in the first place".
As for us regular citizens shooting indicriminately like that will get you arrested.
Why would you tell your wife to empty her shotgun without a target? Now she has to reload under duress.
If he thinks shotguns are easier for a woman to handle than an AR15 why did he advocate women in combat?

Just because I share my country with other idiots who think like you doesn't mean I have to like it. You're, of course, entitled to your opinion and have every right to argue it.

Biden is wrong because either:
1)The shotgun is more powerful than the AR-15 in which case why only ban AR-15s and not shotguns.

2)The shotgun and the AR-15 have the same destructive capacity in which case why bother banning either of them. Or,

3)The AR-15 is indeed, as Biden says, harder to use and aim than the shotgun, in which case why ban the shot gun at all?

@WizardofCOR That is a specious argument. If you actually did your research you would have found that the the constitution was penned after a major event called the "American Revolution", you may have heard of it. They wanted people to have the power to revolt in case of an oppressive government like the one imposed on them by the British.

@FoolsPrussia:
We had an assault weapons ban that was allowed to expire...

That's because it was useless, expensive and did nothing to prevent OR reduce any form of crime.

rather than a moderate choice based on common sense restrictions...

NO ONE is disagreeing with that! Restricting machineguns is A-OK! ONLY the gun-grabbers talk about it as if there were a danger of being "open season" on buying nuclear bombs.

Why can't you change mags as quickly as the criminals?

Because criminals who invade your house are prepared? Because unless you have 4-5 clips stored WITH your firearm, it's not happening?

Nobody is going to ban guns in this country.

Liar! Also: WHY even try to "register" them? Look how well that worked in Canada!

@WizardofCOR why just the southern sates? i mean slavery was legal in the north as well. and weren't there only like 2 or 3 'southern states' outta the 13 who signed? anyways, post sources for some of this research so i can become as enlightened as thee.

No, the 2nd is not about "allowing the people to re-take their freedom."
This is the fallacy that has fooled even the Supreme Court. Research the origins of the 2nd, and you'll (painfully?) discover that it was penned with the sole intent to prevent slave uprisings in the southern states.
All your arguments are invalid.

if you stand behind an administration which recently supported civilian uprise in egypt and still want to ban 'scary guns' you have no idea what the second amendment was about. its not about criminals or hunting game, its about allowing the people to re-take their freedom. and fine, ban scary looking gun parts but i'll get the dr seuss version with my 'high caliber' .223 flying at the same speeds as before.

"I give up. You really are a fool."

If you don't want to be challenged on this idea, go to a forum with sycophants. I come here because I expect to get in discussions where everyone is not in agreement.

If I'm a fool, so area the 52%+ of Americans who want magazine restrictions, and the even higher majorities who want background checks. We're having a discussion over something that is used to kill. Why wouldn't you expect that to be a complicated issue with many diverging opinions?

I'm not surprised about the 3D printing thing, unfortunately, though at the moment that's only accessible by a few people.

I just don't understand your points about the mags, though. It just seems absurd to allow people with the intent to harm access to large capacity magazines for the reasons you all have stated. It seems like you guys are advocating for an arms race with criminals.

Again, if your argument is that limiting capacity doesn't stop a criminal because it takes 1 second to reload, why can't an ordinary citizen with a gun reload his magazine in 1 second to put a stop to the criminal?

Also - don't conveniently ignore the 3D printing bit I wrote about. It renders this conversation completely moot. For your convenience:

FoolsPrussia, you make the assumption that those two cherry picked examples wouldn't have been stopped anyways. And also, how many weren't stopped while they were reloading? Certainly the Newtown shooter wasn't despite the fact that he would've had to reload numerous times. The Batman shooter - the same thing. Charles Whitman, and so many more. It's actually SO FEW of shooters that are stopped while reloading. People who have shot guns know this. You press a button with your thumb, the clip drops and you slide the next clip in. With practice, it takes a second.

"Criminals don't always work in small groups."

But I thought you guys said it only takes a second to change magazines. Why can't you change mags as quickly as the criminals?

By the way, there was an armed civilian present at the Laughner shooting, and he wasn't able to get a clean shot. Laughner was stopped by an unarmed woman only because he stopped to reload.

"Guns rights are being slowly eroded. We're trying to draw a line in the sand."

Eroded? We had an assault weapons ban that was allowed to expire, and isn't going to pass again. Sorry, but the freedom argument is a total red herring to me. Nobody is going to ban guns in this country. It will not happen, because the gun is an integral part of American society.

"Many of us realize that you can't just trade freedoms for security."

Except that's what's been happening. Choosing to interpret the 2nd amendments as an argument for virtually unlimited weapon choice, rather than a moderate choice based on common sense restrictions, has led to a catastrophic number of firearm deaths in this country, compared to other 1st world nations.

"Firstly, it takes almost no time to reload a glock, or a similar weapon."

Except this is the exact reason people were able to stop Jared Laughner and Kip Kinkel.

I don't know if anyone remembers the North Hollywood bank robbery from the 90s, but the police had to raid a local gun store to stop the two robbers, who severely outgunned them.

@FoolsPrussia: I sure do! It's my arguement for LESS "gun control" eh?
And you know what Police across the USA and Canada did? They bought more modern guns! Six-shot revolvers were replaced by 15-shot semi-automatic pistols.
(Not ONLY because of that, but it sure motivated them!)

ANY attempt to regulate or limit LAWFUL citizens is a bad idea. Until the day comes when the criminals also get disarmed? Why shouldn't law-abiding people be allowed to CHOOSE how to defend themselves? Or what SPORT they choose to participate in?

I thought "liberals" were "pro-choice" eh?

Why should a civilian ever use a 33 round clip? You're just going to reload at the target range when your smaller clip is spent.


Criminals don't always work in small groups. Now the most common defense round for a shotgun is 00 buck. That round holds 8 balls which are about .32 cal. double barrel holds 2 that means about 16 bulletts. Will you be wanting to put capacity limits on shells too? Mr. Biden seems to think it ok to just spary those around.

FP ....Are we going to allow large clips just because you find it cathartic to shoot 33 rounds continuously?


No. We allow large magazines (get it right) because we live in a free society. Many of us realize that you can't just trade freedoms for security. Because after a while you'll look around and you won't have either. Guns rights are being slowly eroded. We're trying to draw a line in the sand.

And when the technology is there, you will be able to 3D print an entire fully automatic assault rifle - which are currently illegal.

FoolsPrussia. Firstly, it takes almost no time to reload a glock, or a similar weapon.


And most of the opposition to magazine limits is the sheer inability to regulate something that is not very intricate. Where before it would pretty easy to get your hands on a black market magazine, you can now make it in your garage.
