The best real world example of this is seen in videos of the L.A. riots where store owners stood on their rooftops defending their stores against the mobs. Enough said. limitations on capacity = infringement!
While I can appreciate the need to not joke about shooting Anyone, you go on to say how we need the capacity to defend ourselves against ,, actually more Americans.
When fighting against a infantry,, never really crossed my mind that they were American, , in my hypothetical post, they were Canadian invaders...
Im not sure until your post any Americans were mentioned,, or street thugs, police, cartels..

The title of the thread inferred Americans. I merely expanded thinking on the question with my own answer, sans humor.

Right now, there isn't much to be ammused about. While usually hillarious, the ineptitude of those that now dispute our need of anything more potent than a butter knife has become quite concerning. I'll laugh again when Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein and Obama are dethroned. Biden doesn't worry me. he goes whatever way the wind blows.

i've always thought if all local law enforcement and national guard were willing to limit themselves to the "assault weapon ban", i could easily be swayed to as well.

i mean after all, cops in europe don't even carry guns.

as for a NEED to own...(i didn't watch your video)....people don't NEED to own much of anything.

people don't NEED fast cars. people don't NEED alcohol. people don't NEED 80% of what they own, eat, or drink.

but there are uses for AR-15's. they are popular in varmit hunting and competition shooting. but they are no more NEEDED than a beer. the thing is, nobody is going after beer...its too popular with the mainstream, thus not evil enough.

Do you think criminals will limit themselves too?

the average person on the street thinks the AR-15 you can buy at your local store & the full auto military M16 are the same gun, no one in the media has bothered to set that straight which i'm sure thats intentional too. hell i honestly didn't know till about 10 years ago that there were semi auto AK 47's out there. wasn't till i saw one in a gun shop & asked about that i was finally set straight.

it's standard politics at work, you don't give the whole story, just filter out the opposing side so your view is the only one they can see.

My vote is ban the 30 rnd. Either make em 20 rnd or 40 rnd. That way you don't have to split the boxes up. You either load one box or two. Dang, tin hat fell off AGAIN

The Bobbie's also started carrying hand guns just a very few years after the British ban.
Apparently the criminals never turned in their guns, (who would have guessed) and only went out and got even more heavily armed on in the EU black market.
So as a result the British Bobby which they were so proud of never having been armed with guns, well that tradition died along with their citizens right to self defense.
