    She spouts the socialist/communist lie. No reason to have cars that go faster than 55-60 MPH either. But we do. And cars aren't enumerated rights.

    Beyond that, I wonder when somebody is going to bring up the fact that Harris' parents were not legal US residents when she was born. They were here on student visas.

    When the government tells you you don't need a gun, that's when you need a gun.

    I missed this earlier. Harris is trying to shame her fellow legislators for not doing enough to impose more gun control laws. She invoked the Sandy Hook school shooting from 2012.

    Does she really want to go there? How about you lock yourself and your fellow legislators in a room and look at photos of all the aborted babies we have here in the US every year? Depending on your source, that's somewhere between 600K and 1 million a year. Every year. Please be sure to report back anything your conscience may have whispered to you.

    Maybe she could lock herself and her colleges in a room with a handgun in the middle and a active shooter in the hall. Then let her try and tell her colleges not to touch the gun. Wonder how that would go over?

    You see the AK and AR identified as feather duster defensive cream tarts making them legal.

    I think AR and AK carbines, and evil-looking pistol caliber carbines, make excellent home defense firearms.
    As long as they're loaded with expanding bullet ammo, not FMJ.

    But I think they'd still be excellent choices for even groups of 3-4 bad guys if they only held 10 rounds, rather than 30.

    But what if it's 11 armed bad guys?

    As far as the left is concerned those instances just prove their point....No need to kill someone just because they have been held back all their lives and need to steal to make up for it.....They would have issue with any kind of resistance against these pour little thugs.

    Why only 10 rounds? Is there any real-life data suggesting someone having 10 round magazines over 30 rouders saved someone's life?

    Mandalay Bay massacre, Las Vegas, 2017.

    Without 30+ round magazines, the shooter would not have been able to shoot several hundred rounds into the crowd in such a short time, before they could scatter or find cover.

    The body count would've been much less if the killer had to pause to swap mags (or toss that gun aside and grab another pre-loaded one) after 10 shots.

    It takes a couple of seconds to load a new mag. I don't think the body count would have been reduced by much at all if he had only used 10 rounders.

    The body count could have been higher if he had used 10 round mags and taken precision shots instead of using a slide fire stock.

    Again, this is speculation that I don't believe to be true. If we're going to speculate, I will speculate that the attack would have been just as deadly with his five or more AR15s and dozens upon dozens of pre loaded 10 round mags.

    If he had ten round mags, he probably would not have overheated the guns so much and had to abandon the non-working ones.

    Remember that tidbit from the report?

    I'll support any guns ban when they apply the same ban to government officials i.e. police, FBI, secret service etc.

    Not to mention who's to say he would've obeyed the law anyways?

    Ah, yes. Oppression of the black man. Caused by segregation, the KKK and Lyndon Johnson's Great Society/War On Poverty. All courtesy of the democratic party.
