Response to former-republican (Reply #49)

50. I know.

 

But we all could reduce the lethality, potentially, of that sig sauer 9mm, one of the most popular semis out there, by limiting the size of the clip. The same goes for Glocks. And just the size of the magazine does not work.

Many people who go on assault guns, oh my god! Have never been around them. Why I am focusing on the internal workings. Look at the M-1 Garand. The round is far more lethal than the .223...it just is. But it is limited to five shots, before you need to reload.

We should look at similar mechanism for all civilian weapons. That same Sig Sauer could fire as many as 300/rounds a minute. (Would not recommend it, oh the jamming and hot barrel) so we need to look for ways to reduce how much lead they can push through. The RKBA absolutists are against this. They are also against smart gun technology, which quite honest will be a large part of it. You take my gun away, enjoy the bludgeoning tool.

There are certain attachments, like the forward grip, that makes sense only in military or police forces.

But we need to look at ways to reduce the lethality.

And if anybody wants to have a military grade weapon...I mean it...go drill with the local guard unit. That is what the Founders really meant.

Of course, we need to deal with the larger societal issues.
