    I agree that is no way to start a debate on gun violence, however I did no such thing. You have chosen to interpret some of what I wrote as blaming law abiding citizens and firearms manufacturers. I can't help it if that's what you took from it. I've tried to explain that wasn't the case, but for whatever reason you still think this way.

    We're basically on different pages and I don't see that changing, so I didn't see any reason to continue.

    What this tells me is that you really aren't interested in an open and serious discussion on the matter. You aren't willing to discuss ideas if they start a certain way. You're basically only willing to discuss the matter after a "solution" has been vetted.

    If you were really serious about discussing "access", then you'd be willing to debate the merits of any idea proposed, especially those that you believe "won't work".

    Both of you have stated that changing magazines takes such a brief amount of time so as to not be an issue.

    The fun part, is that both of you supplied all the logic I needed to make my point.

    Once again you read something that isn't there. Please point to where I've stated any type of weapon not currently allowed by the law be restricted.

    You see it as a lie. I see it as you complete inability to even define the firearms you think you know enough to discuss.

    You are right though, I could never hope to lie at the professional level you do.

    Similarly this tells me that you are not willing to discuss areas of "access" where we might reach common ground. I don't believe total bans based on gun names or features or magazine size will work. I have provided facts that back that up. You may not agree but rather than bang our heads against that wall why not discuss other areas?

    I actually pity you and your unbelievable arrogance in refusing to discern the difference between a crazed gunman shooting unarmed civilians, including children, with little or no opposition, and a soldier in combat facing multiple enemy combatants trying to kill him. Obviously, if no one is shooting back at you it would be easier to change magazines more often. Do I need crayons and poster board so I can draw you a picture you might actualy understand?

    The fun part, is that both of you supplied all the logic I needed to make my point.

    No, as usual you are doing just what you accuse others of doing. You pick and choose what you read, how you interpret it, and then how you formulate your non-responsive answer to it. Standard liberal anti-gun tactics.

    Thanks.

    You are welcome. I don't mind at all making you look foolish.
    I can't wait for your next edition of silliness.

    They are your words. Either magazine change time is important or it isn't. You move the goal line to suit your beliefs. I do not.

    Just one flaw in your logic. Once again. I've never advocated eliminating any firearms from private ownership that are currently legal.

    A fact you continually ignore.

    Hey SC, let me save you the effort of finding the difference between Goerge Bush's Wide Receiver program and Obama's Fast and Furious. Because you tried to say they were the same and in fact they weren't.

    There has already been a 10 year experiment banning hi-cap mags and semi-autos with scary looking parts. It had no affect. Why not try something different this time instead of doing the same thing again and expecting different results? Let's fix the criminal justice system and mental health system. Let's tweak HIPPA so that major mental health issues get included in background checks.

    Please state exactly what you DO advocate so that there can be no doubt. That should effectly end the tennis court volleying that is only wasting bandwidth. Currently, "assault style" rifles and hi-cap magazines are legal in the USA. Or are you throwing a curve ball and speaking of certain states that have banned them?

    No it does not extend to them. Their role is different. We've been through this before.
    Their role is different, it's been ruled that they have no responsibility to the individual, only society as a whole.
    That's leaves it up to the average citizen. In my home, the responsibility is mine. With that in mind, I should at minimum have the ability to own magazines with at least the capacity law enforcement deems necessary for their safety and ability to do their job.

    We, individually don't need to bang our heads against that wall. However, I'm talking about having a more global conversation on this matter, not just a handful of people discussing it on the internet.

    I stated that I was done debating the issue with you. You speculated as to why I was doing that. So, I explained why that wasn't the case. You respond to that with another baseless accusation regarding my intent. So, I corrected you. I'm not debating the issue, I'm simply providing a rebuttal to your accusation and misinterpretation of my prior statements. Not sure why you'd find that fascinating.

    Interesting you quote a slave owner in their remarks about tyranny. Depriving someone of their freedom via a belief that a human being is the same as any other piece of private property is a good comparison. Tyranny doesn't get much more explicit than that.

    Please show where I advocated eliminating the ownership of firearms?
    Another racial comment. I stated in post 212 that would be coming and here it is in post 231.

    I'm guessing you missed my posts supporting doing those exact things. I just don't think they should be the only areas looked at and I'm not suggesting that we should repeat the exact same failed policy of the past.

    Yes. Magazine changes only take a short amount of time. Nobody has debated that. What you continue to ignore is that this does not justify your belief that this would have any demonstratable impact on violence.

    If magazine limits were so effective at stopping gun violence then why we're two of the worse examples (columbine and VT) during the previous ban?

    Until you can show how limiting magazines would stop these events the. You have zero ability to dictate what Responsible gun owners do or do not need.
