    Yeah, this is some important stuff and I can see why government considers it a higher priority to ban large capacity magazines over working on those unimportant issues like pension reform or excessive union power or........

Think of all the lines of gang members lining up at police stations to turn in those nasty old mags. Lolly pops and sunshine that's what the left expects when they rid the world of firearm's. Dumb a** s** ** *******! :nuts: Can't keep thinking about this kinda crap will drive ya nutser lol. :gaah:

    The trouble with laws like this is the fact that only the good guys will be effected. This gives the government a "foot in the door" to go further in banning the sale of too much ammo or some such. The economy is on the verge of collapse and the government is worring over the average gun owner having too much fire power, and being able to run them out of Washington, you think?
