Why Does Anybody Need
a 30-Round Magazine?

American Thinker, by William A. Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/3/2013 8:32:11 AM

Senator Dianne Feinstein´s latest divide-and-conquer attack on the Second Amendment has made even Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) a sucker for the argument that private citizens do not need high-capacity magazines. These include not only 30-round rifle magazines, but 17-round magazines for handguns like the Glock. Why does anybody need a high capacity magazine? If Senator Manchin were to educate himself by, for example, attending Front Sight´s four-day defensive handgun class, he would learn the two primary answers: (1) Failure to stop the aggressor, and (2) Multiple aggressors

The NRA should use Chaicago and DC as examples of why you need large clip magazines. They bothe have strict gun laws.

Ummm maybe because the bad guys have 30 round magazines in their guns? You know, the ones who don´t give a fig about LAW?
Feinstein had no qualms about carrying a gun when SHE felt endangered..does she think she is a special class of royalty?

1. Sometimes you miss.
2. As the article points out, police files and combat after-action reports will tell you that a drugged-up assailant/enemy can be hit multiple times and keep coming.
3. It´s none of their damn business to tell me what I "need."

I need a bunch of 30 round clips so that politicians understand there is a well armed populace ready to revolt if they take our freedoms. That is exactly why we have the 2nd amendment. It has nothing to do with hunting or home defense. Why do we sugar coat that???

Practically, so you don´t have to spend your time at the range reloading magazines. Go with a bunch on pre-loaded 30-rounders and you´re good to go. If you only have 10 round mags you have to either buy more of them (costly, since they cost nearly as much as 30-rounders), or waste time at the range reloading mags.

And don´t even get me started on zombies....

Nice fantasy #6, but the previous assault weapons ban (which included limiting mag capacity to 10) had ZERO effect on crime.

Over the last 20 years violent crime rates in this country have been cut in half, despite much more lax gun laws, concealed carry being allowed in nearly all states, and more overall gun sales where the norm is magazines greater than 10 rounds.

But go ahead and make things up if it makes you feel better.

Exactly, 30rd magazines are useful in exercising the rights protected by the 2nd Amendment. If facing civil disorder, riots, multiple assailants, or even a single assailant who is attacking with the advantage of cover, 30 rounds will certainly be useful.

Further, all those politicians who bemoan the evil of standard capacity magazines, would they also call for the armed guards that protect them and law enforcement to be encompassed by the same restrictions?

In the last election, the NRA endorsed Joe Manchin over conservative republican John Raese, who is a gun owner and strong second amendment supporter. Raese would also have been a more reliable vote with a conservative Supreme Court nominee than Manchin, who is going to do along with Obama. Sometimes I have to wonder how the NRA decides on who they are endorsing--and I´m an NRA Life Member.

Easy; failure to stop aggressive liberals, democrats and other Obama supporters and those cases when there are multiple aggressive liberals, democrats and other Obama supporters.

Newsflash: you are solely responsible for the safety of yourself and your children. This is a government that will not pursue obvious lawbreakers (armed New Black Panther Party members at the polling place, one of many examples) and that situation is getting worse.

The lofty ignorant telling us what we need. The liberals deciding for the masses what is best for them. Hasn´t this been their arrogance all along, from how large our carbonated drinks should be (ala New York), where and when, or even if, we can smoke, and whether or not we can display the American flag?

These arrogant hacks are obsessed with micro-managing the lives of free Americans. It is time for them to understand that they serve US, not the other way around. Better yet, it is time for them to go!

I just know that large capacity clips wouldn´t be available to gangs and druggies if they were banned. After all, didn´t DC´s and Chicago´s bans on handguns work beautifully? But the judges went and struck down those bans, so now Chicago has become a dangerous place since then. Maybe if we politely asked all the gangs and other illegal gun owners to give up their weapons they would? In the liberal´s world, anyway.

Several here have hit the nail on the head:

Whether we "need" anything or not is not the question. The 2nd amendment "shall not be infringed."

Does anyone need:
1. a house bigger than 1500 sq ft
2. a boat
3. a personal plane
4. more than 2 cars
5. a hot tub
6. paintings and expensive art
7. paying $10 for a movie ticket
8. $200 shoes
9. vacation trips outside of the USA
10. dining out

..and the list goes on.

We have these things because we are a free society (although less so every year).

Freedom is worth fighting for !

15 in a Glock is not high capacity
30 rounds in a .223 is not high capacity

"High Capacity" is having a Gurkha armorer beside you feeding you belts of .50 ammunition so you can continuously fire until the barrel glows.

That´s high capacity.

Once again, the liberals are taking over the debate and steering it toward the idiot land- What possible bearing on the issue does ammunition capacity have? A man with a single shot derringer can kill an innocent person- a man with a sword, or baseball bat can murder as well until he/she gets exhausted! What difference if the guy has three or twenty ten round magazines or a single 30 round mag? For a trained shooter,reloading a magazine takes lass time than it does to aim and pull the trigger!

As #4 and others say, the primary reason is because in real-life situations you may MISS entirely or miss anything vital, the perps may be moving, you may be injured, lighting may be bad, a firefight may go on for minutes or longer, etc.

May I point out that the design use of assault weapons is not to shoot six year olds in a classroom.

As #61 says, journalists don´t need electronic media to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.

Anyone else happen to see Allisyn Camerota this morning on Fox and Fools? This anorexic commie leaped into the discussion on guns and was even worse than she usually is...could barely contain herself as she pretended to be part of a Q and A staged to frame her pro"get the guns" stance. She got so wound up she nearly spit on her herself. Kilmeade and Doocy clearly have their marching orders and served as stooges. There is no longer a difference between the networks, CNN and FOX. It´s down to degrees of bad and all are worthy of being turned off permanently. Seeing Doocy and Kilmeade knee bending to the hateful and caustic democrat"Allie" was revolting. That Camerota is a demonRAT is no surprise—what´s surprising is how open and brazen she has become and one can only assume that is with Ailes´/FOX blessing.

Well, somebody ought to address the real issue, so I guess that´s me.

The 2nd Amendment does not say "the right of the people to keep and bear such arms as their betters think they should...."

Never forget: the 2nd grants nothing. It recognizes an inalienable right to armed self-defense that is of even higher-provenance than the Constitution itself, and is therefore beyond the reach of the gov´t established by that Constitution.

Don´t get lost, don´t go off-track, by accepting the debate terms the Left lays down. Got it?

An invalid premise will often be challenged out here. Nothing personal.

As for me, there are certain areas where I will not permit "society" (translation: liberals) to "draw my lines" for me. Unfortunately, I´m stuck with this one in California. Don´t let it happen to you.

It is simple.
Because a belt-fed machine gun is too hard to get.
Why does any Member of Congress need $200,000 a year?
Can´t they live off their lobbyists?
Why does Zippy need $400,000 a year? All his expenses are paid. By us.
And where are those hollow-point rounds for the Feddies?
Are they afraid of something?
Besides, David Gregory does NOT want guns in schools. Except for the school where he sends his children, which is an armed camp. (Sidwell Friends School)
Guns for me, but not for thee, is the liberal cry.
A skilled sniper, who practices every day, may make every shot count.
The occasional gun user, on the other hand, misses a lot (but then so do the New York City Police).
There are disadvantages to large magazines, of course. The spring travel is such that the last few rounds may jam.
Oh, well.

Good essay. I also took the 4 Day Defensive Handgun course. There are so many variables involved in a lethal force situation, and FrontSight makes you think about all of them. I took the course because I do own firearms and I wanted to be sure that I was responsible enough to use them.
But the left will never stop trying to disarm us. You can quote facts, figures, statistics to them, and they will stick their fingers in their ears, because they don´t want to hear any logic.
It´s gotten to the tipping point, and we have got to stop apologizing about who we are as Americans and 2nd amendment supporters.
NO MORE COMPROMISES.

As one who has my concealed carry license (and carries all the time), I do carry a handgun that has 17 rounds in the magazine (with another magazine in reserve). Why? Because I am not a police officer and this isn´t Hollywood. If I were to be in a situation with more than one perps, the odds are high that I will need every available option if I make the choice to engage. 17 rounds is not a lot when you think that half of those could miss their target (in a situation where people are moving and firing). I think it is the height of arrogance for Washington, D.C. pols and writers to limit my freedom to protect myself.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga
American Thinker, by Mathew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/18/2014 9:08:36 AM     Post Reply
As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers. Nullifying an election by

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

The New Liberal Racism

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American. [video clip]. So why did Mary accept

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
