Well I have been remiss, and off of here for a while, so I just spent a good chunk of my lunch reading this thread from the beginning. I wish I could have added this a little sooner, as it looks like we're doing Christmas wishes now (and that's where I will end this). I do agree that this has been very thoroughly hashed out, and I read some excellent points on both sides. I am sorry for opening a can of worms, but I do think it's a good idea to discuss these things before decisions are just made for us. Silence doesn't fix anything in this situation. Here is what I wanted to share. This woman lost both of her parents to a violent gunman when they were eating at a restaurant. Her dad tried to take down this gunman. Her mother wouldn't leave his side. However, she is speaking out against a mag ban of some sort, I assume in Texas where she hails from I believe. It's really worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-oNMHN ... ata_player
We have an AR and we have high capacity mags. To be completely honest, I don't feel I need the high caps, and I don't mind reloading so much. (Yes it's a pain, but there are worse inconveniences) But in all seriousness, I wonder about the effectiveness of a mag restriction anyway. What, are they going to go door to door? ARs have been flying off the shelves. There are just too many out there for a ban to be effective. And honestly, I don't think it would be anyway if/when it happens. I can change mags super fast, it's not hard to learn
I wish I could think of a solution. I do believe that whatever type of solution might be out there does not involve a gun ban. It might be the opposite for all I know. But like I said, I really don't feel I need high caps, but I have decided to fall into ranks with those who would oppose a ban. I think it's a slippery slope. Just my opinion guys and gals.
Lastly, I am at work so I did not get to tune into the news conference yet. I am hoping they keep it available on their site for the latecomers!
I hope everyone has a healthy, safe and wonderful Christmas with your family and friends! I am glad to know all of you on here, and I look forward to reading what's new, and I value everyone's opinions. And just in case I am not back on here, have a very safe and fun New Year!
Take care everyone!
