7. Haven't there been rumors of this forever?

I don't think that poster just pulled that out of nowhere for this thread.

Just sayin'.

10. You're overreacting.

Graham has long been rumored to be gay. I don't think he's gay because he's a shithead. I think he's gay because he's gay.

12. Many of his constituents routinely refer to him as "Miss Lindsay" ...

whatever that means.

8. He wouldn't shoot an intruder, anyway. He'd just hide in the closet. nt

5. He's military.

Any trained military personnel should be able to change an M-16 clip in a couple of seconds.

9. "Trained?" He doesn't need to be trained.

It's simple to change a magazine, it's meant to be simple. The fact that magazine-fed weapons are so easy to use could be used as an argument against their sale -- I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been.

Anyway, Graham is a former air force officer in the justice department -- I'd be surprised if he was ever trained to use an M-16.

11. Placing a rectangular object in a rectangular hole is not difficult

Anyone with basic motor skills can do it.

13. Lindsey Graham is a Rightwing nutcase when a Democrat is in the WhiteHouse.

Clinton-Graham was one of the 13 Impeachment Persecutors.
Obama-Graham is opposing any bipartisan decision Obama makes-appointing Hagel as Defense Secretary.
When a Republican is in the Whitehouse-Graham was able to behave like a maverick.

14. Lindsey Graham is a right-wing nutcase regardless of who is in the White House.

I say that as a South Carolinian whose district he represented when he was in the House. One only has to look at all the shit Congress crammed through when Dumbya was President. He was a party to that.

15. Sure, he can change a magazine quickly

but, wasn't that how they caught/stopped Gabby Giffords' shooter? When he stopped to change magazines?

16. The point is not the speed. The point is the practical limitation on rounds carried.

The Sandy Hook Shooter was reported to have 3 30-round magazines. 90 rounds. Managing 3 magazines is trivial.

Let's say AR-15 magazines are limited to 5 rounds. That means he'd have to carry 18 magazines to carry the same amount of ammo. That is much more awkward. So he'd probably have carried fewer than 18.

Less ammo on hand means less dead people.

The fact that the shooter might screw up, as in the Giffords shooting, is a bonus.
