  1. Now, I am not an attorney, or even a constitutional scholar, but I sure would be obliged if y’all would show me the part of the constitution where it says the government has the authority to dictate to me what I “need” and “don’t need”.

    The whole point of the Revolutionary War back in 1775-81 was that we don’t take to having our government tell us what to think, say, or do. In fact, we the citizens are the ones who are supposed to do the tellin’.

    We have gotten too far away from that, and we need to get back to it.

  3. As some Canadian fella said, on a different subject: “Because it’s my bloody RIGHT to do so!”

    Nice buffet for thought, Doug.

    BTW, What weapon has a seven round magazine?

    Maybe a sub-compact .45?

  5. ^ Standard 20thC 1911 mags (and even some made today) hold seven rounds;
    but most good mags now hold eight.

  6. I guess the best answer is: At 2300 rounds per minute, 7 rounds hardly gets my attention.

  7. Can I kick the ass of the next person that calls an AK47 a “Machine gun”?

  8. Pretty much nobody who asks the question will hear the answer. The question is usually a statement with a vestigial question mark at the end.

    If someone *really* cares about the answer, I would first be shocked, and then explain to them briefly including facts about where and how violent crime actually occurs, how that relates to these horrible scary weapons, and explain briefly the history of disarmament and what follows, and then relate that to these horrible scary weapons.

    And then I would offer to demonstrate these tools at a range, and help them pick one out should they wish to.

  9. I love how all these feckwits who have never pulled a trigger in their lives are suddenly somehow experts on “what *I* need.”

  14. Here’s your answer:

    Firearms law does not apply to criminals.

    A real smart fella just pointed that out to me…

  15. My carry piece, a Sig .40, holds 7 rounds-7 hollow points, 180 grain-I don”t care if you’re hit in the arm or leg, a very large piece of any attacker is going to be blown off.

  17. Great piece, Doug. This is easily the clearest explanation I’ve seen for the necessity of “more than enough” bullets.

  18. ^ We know the difference between a magazine and a clip. It’s just easier to say “clip”.

  19. Never get caught with your dick in your hand in a village full of hostiles (i.e., don’t run out of ammo before the fight is over).

    Love your blog.
