Yeah, "Fast and Furious" Katie, point the gun elsewhere while we continue to give nutjobs unfettered access to killing machines. At the very LEAST we should limit the magazines that these dopes are allowed to purchase and empty on innocent civilians - you know, those people who can barely drop to the ground, let alone pull out their 'own weapon' in the 5-seconds it takes for a murdering clown to empty a magazine

With a little practice, you can change magazines so fast that you can hardly tell the difference. Magazine size is a read herring.

A man by the name of Jerry Miculek can empty a 6 shot revolver, reload, and empty 6 more shots in under 3 seconds. Oh, yeah, all 12 shots are on target. Granted that is a world record, but is just shows that magazine size is a non-issue with a little practice.

Anne, you are right on, rae has no idea what he is talking about. Libtards seem to think keeping guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens will reduce crime, not realizing that criminals buy their guns and magazines on the blackmarket, not in a retail store or vendor.

semi-auto,magazine-fed rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47 are today's modern MILITIA weapons,and thus should be the most protected of firearms under the Second Amendment.

Militias were expected to appear for muster bearing arms and ammo similar to and compatible with what the Regular military had in use AT THAT TIME.
Since we "compromised" and restricted ownership of full-auto,true assault rifles,that leaves the semi-auto versions for civilian militia use.

During the LA riots of 1992,the police REFUSED to enter the riot zone to protect citizens,and Korean shopkeepers used "assault weapons" to hold off the rioting mob that came to burn them and their families alive in their shops/homes. that's just ONE good reason,not that we need ANY reason to own them.
it also is justification for 30 round magazines,you need firepower to hold off a riot mob.
Not that we need any justification.

the Second Amendment of the Constitution is NOT ABOUT hunting or sporting.
it's about the people retaining the ability to "alter or to abolish" a government gone bad,as written in the Declaration of Independence.
the Founders had just overthrown their own incumbent government (Britain) by FORCE OF ARMS,and recognized that it might have to be done again in the future,thus the inclusion of the 2nd Amendment protecting the People's right to keep and bear arms.
The American Revolution BEGAN when the Brits moved to confiscate arms at Concord.
the people (in militia) responded with privately owned arms.

Hey, Babyrae, how many would he have killed ramming his car into the line of 100 people outside before the start of the movie? Certainly no less. How will you stop that? Armed despotic regimes and criminals (who will always be able to get guns [see-Mexico]) kill more than this. More people died that day nationwide in auto accidents. About that many die annually by being struck by lightning. P erspective ruins your knee-jerk argument.

Uh Oh... rae-rae is having another temper tantrum....

And as usual, he has absolutely NO CLUE what he's drooling about.

While ignoring the inconvenient fact that part of the reason why 63,000 people have been slaughtered in Mexico since 2006 is because Mexican citizens aren't allowed to legally own guns and defend themselves against ruthless drug cartels purchasing guns in bulk from China and Latin America, Mexican President Felipe Calderon is lecturing the United States again about how we need to reform our "mistaken" gun laws.

"Because of the Aurora, Colorado tragedy, the American Congress must review its mistaken legislation on guns. It's doing damage to us all," Calderon said.

Remember, Calderon called...
