    Well obviously you arent going to let people hurt your family. But the odds of multiple people breaking in with the intentions of getting into a confrontation are astronomically small.

    For me the video shows who really pays the price. It's not the criminals or the crazy gunman because they don't follow the law anyway. It's the law abiding citizen who is now at a disadvantage created by "feel good" legislation. Once again trading liberty for safety leads to losing both.

    Are those odds less than or greater than the odds of a legally registered firearm being used in a crime by the legally registered owner?

    Serious question? If you have a family, your gun has a far greater chance of being used to kill you or someone in your family than it does of killing an intruder.

    Im not even trying to say guns should be illegal BTW. My point in here is basically that 9954 is acting like hes Rambo or James Bond and Im just pointing out that he isnt. Theres literally no home self defense scenario that involves you needing a high capacity mag that will end well for you. If you want to argue for them, make a constitutional argument, because the practical use for one is nil.

    Of course he isn't and its ridiculous that he thinks so.

    The crazy thing is you better be a Rambo or James Bond with a 7 round clip when the criminals have STANDARD size clips.

    Right. Because Wild West style shootouts happen on the reg in the home.

    If youre in a gun fight and you havent killed the guy in 7 shots, youre already ****ed whether you have a 7 round mag or a 400000000000000 round mag.

    Re: Why You NEED Standard Capacity Magzines: Multiple Home Invaders

    Home invasions are a type of burglary. As Tyler has said it is rare that someone is killed. And as Locke said, the times that people are killed in these invasions are when drugs or organized crime is involved.

    So because the majority of the invasions are burglaries, there are better ways of keeping from being targeted. A few ways are:

    Keep your curtains/shades closed when not at home. Most burglaries happen because they are able to see what you have in your house.

    When you buy expensive products, either keep the boxes, or break them down and put them in your dumpster ON trash day. Again, it keeps people from knowing what you own.

    And an obvious one that everyone forgets, lock doors and windows.

    As home invasions. Look before answering the door. Or don't answer the door at all to unannounced arrivals.

    And be vigilant. Watch for anyone creeping around the neighborhood.

    Common sense is a much better defense than a gun in a home invasion. More to the point, if someone is going break in and rob you are gun point, in a blitzkrieg fashion, you aren't going to have time to get your gun to defend yourself.

    Remember. Never goto the Library without your shotgun.
