Damed right! And since we have so many alcoholics and DUI drivers and so many people killed by drunken drivers and so much family abuse perpetrated by drunk people, we should ban alcohol! Oh wait, we already tried that...

It is how YOU think.. What if government limits cars to certain horsepower.. Let's say 100 hp, then limits something else and else and else.. I don't have extended (18+) capacity magazines , because I don't need them today . But when I need I want to be able buy, without kissing anyone a$$.
Here is lawful reasons:
1. Civil unrest (riots). You think impossible? Try disrupt water/fuel supply for 5 days.. How much fuud you have in your kitchen and fuel in your garage. Average citizen has 2 days!!!!! food suply!!
2. Uphold US Constitution against our tyrannical government (if happens)

I'm sure I will hear from "sport" shooters as that might be the only valid reason.....
If I in shootout with 5+ people I want 33 rd magazine.. You can say impssible.. What about LA riots?

I fully support our 2nd Amendment rights, however, all one reasonable, thinking person has to do is attend a local gun show....observe the wide variety of characters walking out the doors with extended magazines, massive amounts of ammunition....semi-automatic weapons...(long and hand)....it is scary....!
Do you care sidearm? If yes, assuming you 2nd Amendment supporter. Why you scared them? Aghh!! You judging people by their look!!! Not good..
Even though, I agree some people as stupid as they look.. but I have seen a LOT of good looking people and they were as stupid as it gets...

I would be very interested to hear responses from those readers that feel they can justify the lawful need to own an extended mag....Save the "it's my right" line.....and if you claim personal protection....might I suggest you spend a little more time at the range....If it takes 31 rounds to neutralize your target...you need it........Hunting...not hardly !

Tipical position... If I don't need it nobody needs. See my comments above..
I don't want to be regulated and this is reason why I moved to AZ

I guess if I owned a gun store and some 22 year old kid walked thru the door requesting to buy a 9mm Glock complete with 30 round clips....I'd have to exercise my right of refusal....or ask to see his badge.......
This is because you judge it from political not practical position.
Based on his picture all over the media, I would refuse the sale to him as wel!!! But I bet he was looking normal in Novemeber

I'm waiting for them to make speed limits near banks 15 mph so getaway car drivers won't be able to outrun the cops. Yeah, that'll stop bank robberies.

Banning extended cap clips won't take the ones already out on the street out of circulation. The people who will use an illegal weapon don't care what the laws are. Prohibiting the sale to law enforcement only won't work since it looks like there will always be those willing to break the law to make a sale.

Even if you wave a magic wand and make all the high-cap magazines disappear, the criminals will just carry more weapons. Rather than stopping to reload they could just pull out another loaded weapon.

Armed, proficient, law abiding citizens are the answer. That means you have to be trained and practiced.
