1. The clip in my 20 gauge shotgun holds two cartridges. That's plenty for most situations.

4. I've never had to use it, but the clip is available if I need it. I keep all the guns unloaded.

5. Heh. I'm pretty sure the NRA *loves* this conversation.

The 1994 "assault weapon" law, which didn't even ban any guns, roughly doubled the NRA's membership, vastly increased their donations, and catapulted them into the position they are now in, while pretty much destroying the organizations on the other side of the issue that opposed them.

Now politicians have introduced a new magazine ban that goes waaaaay beyond the 1994 law, and will affect three to four times as many voters as an outright ban on hunting would (we're talking about banning 100-200 million magazines owned by 40-50 million people here)....and it is confiscatory, with transfers even to your own family/heirs punishable by 10 years in Federal prison.

No, the NRA *loves* this crap. It is their bread and butter.
