Think about that. That's the population of a small city.

Not up to you what I use to hunt with.

But I have a rifle made in 1889 that can knock off 8 people in eight seconds.

Please explain why I, facing that same potential threat, should not be able to arm myself equally well as the police, particularly given that I will be facing it alone.
Why will none of the GCAs here answer the question I posed above? I've asked this several times in various discussions but have yet to receive any answer. This is your chance antis! Change my mind!

Some have asked, “who needs 100 rounds?”

If 6 brave, trained, and alert police officers with professionally maintained weapons fired 58 rounds to subdue the Dayton shooter,

I’d say my wife deserves at least that many chances to protect herself and my kids when I’m not home.
