Hand guns are more dangerous than "deadly assault weapons" because they are concealable and a Glock 17 holds 17 rounds with a standard mag. You could walk into a school with 2 Glock 17s, one in each hand, and shoot 34 people before you need to reload.

can a glock 17 be fitted with a 100 round capacity drum like a bushmaster?

edit: btw, 17 refers to the model type, not the clip capacity.

Uh duh, thanks. It still holds 17 rounds, Rotsky.

Agreed. But there is a false sense of power when someone holds an a r15. It makes you feel like a soldier. The kids here were shot between 3 and 11 times a piece. Plus a hand gun is much harder to hit targets at a distance without keeping up at the range. I used to be a member of the NRA and fought for gun control. Then I had kids and my view changed. All I keep at home now is a shotgun locked up with the gun and ammo in my safe with no one but me that knows the combination. A shot gun is such a better home defense weapon anyway. There is nothing more menacing than hearing a shoutgun loading. Most home intruders are basic thiefs there for my television. Having an ar15 you have to worry about missing the target and the bullet traveling into your neighbors house killing them. My shotgun with buck shot I do not have to be as accurate and no worries about how far the bullet will travel. I see no reason for assault riffles or high capacity clips. I am fine with concealed carry with 10 round clips. If the shooter went in to the school with just 2 handguns there is a chance that their may be at least 1 more kid alive while he was reloading.

You can get 30 rd clips for a Glock and they are very easy to make fully auto, start by banning all ammo and then all guns.

- OK. That's it! You can not participate in anymore gun talk.

I'll do what I want. Someone needs to fight the 'deadly assault weapon' idiocy.

True, but you might have a helluva time getting that done if there were two fences and armed sentries waiting on you.

Not a "Theory" it's a fact. Assault weapons are made just for killing people. Wow....Give me one good explanation why that isn't so...Just one.....

Because you can't sneak an assault weapon into a building. Or how about the FACT that less than 1% of violent crimes are committed with any sort of rifle, period?

Hand guns are much more dangerous. They are easy to conceal, are just as effective at the sort of ranges most mass murders take place, and hold just as much ammo.

And what the <hell do you think hand guns are for, anyway? No one goes hunting with a Glock 17. Hunting with an AR-15 is much more logical than a Glock.

Are you serious here, or are you drunk or something? I don't believe I've advocated the carrying of hand guns, either. I merely stated that assault rifles are made for killing only. But since you brought the subject up, semi-automatic pistols are a problem, too.

Well, you need too do quite a bit of research without just trying to back up some preconceived conclusion. You need real facts, RealFacts.

He is not capable of providing real facts now. He hasn't matured to that point. But there is always hope.

Another vague drive by by Okie. You never have real points.

Fact: less than 1% of violent crimes are committed with rifles.

Please look up Amdahl's law and stop being stupid.

You are mentally crippled with an incorrect view of history. I'm glad you are well versed in history as presented by Disney, however.

Wow. Your problem is really more in depth than I imagined at first. In any case, this mindless prattle with you is becoming quite mundane. Back to the point...Society HAS degenerated over the years. One has only to look at the history of things. How many mass killings at schools and churches took place in the 50's 60's or 70's? Or even the 80's? Can you answer that question? It was unheard of in those days.

LOL, you fail at history.

Let's go through this:

50s, and 60s? Seriously? Have you ever heard of Bombingham?

70's Kent State?

The violent crime rate PEAKED in 1975. You are super well versed in history.

"I merely stated that assault rifles are made for killing only"

ALL guns are made for killing PERIOD......been that way since they were invented......

be it hunting animals or humans.......that said

you bring up 50's...60's etc....

look around....the kids are barely taught anything nowadays...i remember going hunting in high school before school and my shottie being in my car......it was a simple thing called responsibility.......kids dont have it now.....blame the parents....the teachers and the government......you cant even spank a child now without someone getting involved

not to mention the fact we are the 3rd most populated country in the world....crazy things happen.....

this kid could have made a bomb and done way more damage....
