List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
Besides it being your right to have them, or being too lazy to reload, what are your reasons for wanting to own high capacity mags for your weapons. For me :

* 7 million+ people in the US prison system, basically being turned into animals. What if they let them out?
* 1 million+ gang members in the US that are becoming more organized and militarized. If your under seige by a large group of thugs, How many rounds do you want at the ready ?
* 4 million feral pigs and 5 million feral dogs in the US. Like people, packs of animals have a potential to cause great harm. If I'm fighting off a pack of 15 dogs I want more than a 10 roung mag.
* Roving gangs of looters and flash mobs of 30 or more idiots. Again, if it's me against them, I want high capacity mags.
* Jihadist, aliens, and rogue goverment agencies. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Prepare for the worst and prey for the best.

Re: List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
seriously the only reason to have high capacity mags or even assault rifles is to protect ourselves from an evil dictator who wants to overthrow our country. You want honesty that is it... but who fucking knows. Do I want to see my country torn apart by war? Fuck no... This is going to be so horrible... I am a staunch gun advocate but i wonder why? America has been in a state of war sense 1942. and it really sucks... My uncle died on some Japanese island, he saved his whole platoon and received the silver star posthumously.. america is being torn apart in these wars that we the people have had no choice in.

I really see only one clear reason for keeping my high capasity mags.

The Government has them, and uses them. I am not talking about the military. But as long as the TSA, Homeland Security, the FBI, and all Law Enforcement agencies have and use them, I will keep my high capacity mags to protect me from the protectors.

Re: List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
Little background info: I didn't buy my first gun until after watching the news during the Katrina Huricane. When I seen how fast law and order broke down and resorted back to caveman days when there was no law around it was a real eye opener. Gangs were taking over grocery stores and looting anything of worth. There were gang rapes and murders, and probably in greater numbers than being reported. Then you watch youtube vids of the flashmobs, riots, and various gang activies you realize that one person against a large group needs a force multiplier.

It is the PACK mentality that poses a real dangers. You can include war atrocities in with that too. People can lose their conscience when in a gang or pack.

So if I'm facing a gang or pack of idiots with bloodlust and greed on the brain, I want several high capacity mags taped together at the ready.

Re: List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
First, they are not "high capacity" mags. They are standard capacity mags. An AR 15 was designed with a 20 or 30 round mag as standard. A Glock was designed with a 17 round mag as standard.

I have them for the same reason that the cops and military have them. Because they are the best choice for self defense.

If 3 crackheads kick down my door in the middle of the night, there is absolutely no reason that I should be less able to defend myself than the cops, who are 20 minutes away.

Re: List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive." - Noah Webster

“When governments fear people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” - Thomas Jefferson


"One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms." - Constitutional scholar and Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story

Re: List your reasons for having high capacity mags.
The reason I have regular capacity magazines for my ak47 [30 rd] is because im a prepper. I have everything that I need to protect my family. I always buy the best thing I possibly can to make sure my family is protected from everyone else when the economy collapses, the power grid goes down due to a cme, or we have a natural disaster and looters decide to take what I have, rape my girlfriend or my daughter or kill me or them. You can bet ill be damn sure that I will do whatever, buy whatever, or use whatever I can to protect my family. If you or anyone else choose NOT to buy whatever available, that's your right, but I have already bought standard capacity magazines legally and you can be sure that I will keep them and my ak47 and not be bullied into giving them up by some liberals who could never protect their family and would lie down and die if anything happened.

What vets? The ones that get their check AND medical care free from the same government? Please. The military is trained to follow orders. Sure, a few here and there are principled, but most will look out for their family and paychecks first.

You underestimate the intelligence and cunning of these people. They are demonizing certain groups (preppers, Wall Street occupiers, Arabs, etc) so that it's easy to justify the violence. Watch cops in Oakland and NY abuse and beat protesters, while most people cheered.

You've forgotten there has been 75 years of media conditioning. There are people who still believe the government would NEVER purposefully kill citizens to advance their agenda. Armed forces killed people indiscriminately in Vietnam, did so in Iraq, and are killing women and children in Aghanistan (check YouTube). It's like a video game now that they do it from remote rooms via drones.

You think it won't be easy to shoot those "ghetto people" when they start to riot for lack of food? Or the militias asking for secession? Or dangerous, fully armed preppers? It's not us vs. them. It'll always be you against another group... Until it's your group's turn.

It's all about perception management, and they're damn good at it.
