First off let me say I am personally offended by the us of the term "assault weapon" as it implies anyone that owns one of these miss classified guns will go forth and assault someone.

So I demand the they discontinue of the use of that terminology. Call it what it is, a semi automatic riffle that looks like a military firearm!

Now for the video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Fiu8jp4MC9A#!

I concur but good luck getting the lame stream media to follow along. Their verbage is not accidental, but well orchestrated and intentionally misleading to sway the majority of sheeple who wouldn't know independent thinking if it shot them in the @$$. Kinda like that saying if you call a kid retarded all his life, he will grow up thinking he IS retarded..
Well the mass populace is the exact opposite,, they are retarded being told have sensitive and savvy they are.

...and why do we need 30 round mags?

...because an Infantry Platoon consists of (4) 9 man squads!

Wouldn't we need 36 round mags? :}
Nope...you dump 20 as they advance...you'd need to shoot 10 more in the back as they fled in order to run dry.

Any adversaries aggression is directly tied to his feeling about his mission. Having served Infantry myself, I can tell you the notion of getting killed to force a policy that violates 2A would not be a popular one with the troops.

Careful guys. You are starting to make jokes about shooting at other Americans.

We are entitled to high capacity magazines because any limitations result in us being outgunned by adversaries in the role of self defense already affirmed under the 2nd Ammendment by the Supreme Court, AND it would have us outgunned by any other enemies, foreign or domestic. Whether cartels, street thugs or misguided police and soldiers executing illegal orders under bad legislation, we should not be impaired in our ability to defend our own lives.
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!

Really the joking about it makes us all appear in the image the media wants to portray... Gun Nuts. You make a great point, thank you! As ludicrous as it all is, we have to maintain our sense

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.

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.
