I had a though for a bill for student congress and wanted to get some feedback.

Should the sale of semi automatic handguns with clips of more than 7 rounds be restricted to police and military? Theoretically, who really needs more than a 7 round clip?

Good piece of legislation. Very controversial and amenable to debate.

Theoretically, people with 8 or more targets. :P

How did you draw the line at 7? Why that number? Why not 6, or 8, and what about for sporting and such? Or to fend off a rabid squirrel gang attack?

Just kidding on that last question, but the others ones are legit.

Personally, I'm more of a fan of limiting the types of bullets used, but then, I look at gun rights, as what is the best way to maximize self defense, while minimizing destruction.

How did you draw the line at 7?
Well, if you have fewer bullets, you need a lucky number like 7 to fix your self defense capabilities.

While revolvers typically hold 6, most magazines for targets and such hold a max of 7 rounds. Granted you can chamber a round, and insert another into the magazine giving you 8. The Arizona dude had clips that held 31 rounds.

Okay, but why not put the restriction at 10? For example, the glock 17, typically holds a 17 round clip, but does have an optional 10 round clip where 10 is the restriction.

Having never handled a gun before it is likely that should I confront a burglar most of my shots will thud into the wall, the ceiling, or my cat. I can't have two many bullets. If I am allowed a 7 round clip, why not an 8 round clip?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Simple solution, have a boat load of guns piled by your bed.

I would personally like to have around 10 - 15 rounds in a handgun for some of the places I go hunting. Between hogs in the south and mountain lions and black bears when I go up north I'd prefer to have more than a few rounds especially should I get stuck out in the woods from getting lost/injured/hindered due to weather. Also if something should happen during a self-defense situation like a dud round or something it would be nice to be able to simply eject that round and know there's going to be more behind it.

I hunt with a rifle more than with a shotgun but I know plenty of people that bring handguns should they run into hostile wildlife. I can fire a S&W M&P much faster than my bolt-action rifle.
