    The guy was guano loco. He could've driven a dump truck through the wall into the place, or lit the entrances on fire (see Seattle).
    There isn't an amendment that requires a voter ID, but many states REQUIRE a voter ID, and somehow, that's ok.

    Still, the argument is more about the larger concept of regulation, not a specific idea of IDs. Seems like that concept it totally lost.

    Why is it so freaking hard to want to come up with ideas and rules to reduce the scale of mass shootings??? I just don't get that. You get so lost in the details that the big picture is totally lost.

      Stop using the argument that a fire would've been just as effective. Given the fact that fire codes and fire departments exist and the fact that a fire would give people several minutes of reaction time versus the milliseconds of a gun, it's a silly argument.

If you put voting on identification, in order to suppress the vote, all you have to do is use the computer network used to scan the ID (because they're not going to allow the poll workers to just look at it, I guarantee that) to "suspend" someone's ID for the day of the election.
        You don't seem to fight any other restrictions on any other amendment as you do the 2nd. Here's your opportunity to speak out for the rest. Go for it. That's my point. Otherwise, you are a hypocrite.

          Revolver (longest stroke, most force, trigger to pull). Eight times. One second.

          Better? Six shots, reload, six shots, 2.9 seconds.

            It amazes me the kinds of arguments you guys come up with.

One discharge for each trigger pull. Now, if you're intending that the only allowable actions are pump/bolt/etc, that's different. Not sure how I feel about that.

                Speed of magazine change, how exactly do you envision that to happen? A law that states "you shall not take less than 5 seconds, 10 seconds to swap a magazine." Let me know how that would work out...
                Again, it's just a mechanical device. It's not hard to conceptualize a design that limits the speed that you can pull a trigger. Nor is it hard to conceptualize a magazine design that is more difficult to change.

                Sorry you can't see that concept.

                  (Imagine how someone would be received in this forum talking about the second quarter of a hockey game. Understand?)
                  And pull back to see the larger picture here.

                  Diversity in ideas are a good thing. Not all of them are good, heck a majority can be **** poor. But thinking about them all can come up with good ideas.

                    Create a business that specializes in producing these mechanical devices, then. It's clearly a booming industry, as you'd be the first and only business doing that.

                    Oh. Wait.

                        The ATF and Mexican government put 90% of guns acquired in Mexico as having US origins. Mexico has one legal gun shop, which is located in Mexico City.

                          How about this, the anti-gun crowd wants ideas on what can be done that we (the pro-gun people) would accept, so I'll propose a few items that I, personally, would be ok with. (no guarantees with flaggy, we all know he's a few doughnuts short of a dozen)

                          1. Get tougher on gun ownership responsibility. Make people liable when they make weapons they own available to people that commit violent crimes. This encourages people to lock up their guns, and be more responsible gun owners, and potentially keeps guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
                          2. Install a system to efficiently allow background checks for private gun sales, and encourage its use. As a gun owner, if I were to sell a gun, I'd use this voluntarily, as would many others.
                          3. Install an option for "Advanced" concealed carry permits. This would be a training that is the same, or very similar to the weapons training that police officers receive. It would be tough to pass. It would also allow citizens, that are very highly trained, to carry in the same locations off-duty police officers do.
                          4. Create a system to allows law enforcement to add people under investigation to a no-buy list (the felon list). This is tricky, because there needs to be adequate checks and balances, we cannot have people put on this list for no reason, with no way to get off of it. There needs to be a quick way to fight having your name on the list.
                          Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

                            Sources I'm seeing state 60-70% of weapons smuggled in from the US. Building a wall would lower that number drastically. Thus, we should build the wall.

                              Do all triggers act alike, or are there differences? In other words, if I can fire gun X four times in a second, will I necessarily be able to fire gun Y at the same speed? Or are some made to be fired more rapidly than others? Assuming both are semi-automatic.

                              In other words, is it entirely dependent on the human, or do the mechanics of the gun play a role?

                                Will have to post this again (and again). This former military officer says the AR 15 fires about 180 rounds a minute. Even with a 30 magazine...that's 30 casualties.

                                https://www.quora.com/How-many-round...ire-per-minute

                                The only pack this type of fire power kills is humans. You can see the AR 15 in action in this clip.

                                We need to ban weapons capable of this.

                                Not sure if one Mexico City gun shop provides 30-40% of the guns...especially when they're primarily used near the US border. The broader point is that guns are causing widespread death on both sides of the border.
