Skip to comments.Nobody "Needs" Detachable Magazines

Nobody needs 24/7 media coverage of mass killings. It leads to the copycat effect where unbalanced people are given an incentive to kill masses of innocents in order to become famous.
Nobody needs to go to the church of their choice. One state sponsored church is plenty.
Nobody needs to refuse police questions. What have you got to hide? This practice allows child killers to roam the streets.
Nobody needs to assemble in large groups. It is dangerous and leads to riots. Small children are trampled to death.
Nobody needs Automobiles. Mass transit is more efficient and safes the lives of children.
Nobody needs to videotape police. It hinders investigations and police efficiency.
Nobody needs alcohol. That did not work out so well last time.
Nobody needs marijuana. That is not working out well at present.
Nobody needs unsupervised Internet access. It leads to misinformation and political unrest. People would have access to dangerous information.
Nobody needs twitter or text messaging. Look at all the trouble it caused in Libya, Egypt, and Syria.
Nobody needs meat. People have to kill animals to get it.
Nobody needs more than one bathroom per house. Anything more wastes water.
Nobody needs swimming pools. Hundreds of children drown in them every year.
Our society is not based on the Marxist concept of to each according to their needs. Our society is based on the rights of the individual. Rights are protected by the Constitution, and are not subject to majority vote.
Banning a box with a spring that can be produced in any home workshop, when there are hundreds of millions already in circulation, would do nothing to stop mass murders. Even given the unlikely possibility that it could do a very little good, it would certainly do great harm. While you may not see the need for such a device, tens of millions of your fellow citizens vehemently disagree, as indicated by the millions that are being sold every month. They will resist such a law with more moral certainty than anyone resisted prohibition. Many lives will be lost trying to enforce such a provision. Either jails will be filled to overcrowding, or the provision will be only given lip service. Neither result advances the public good.
There is a reason that these provisions are only pushed in the heat of an emotional response. They cannot stand reasoned reflection.
The first ten amendments aren’t called the “Bill of Needs” - for a very good reason.
Bill of Rights vs Bill of Needs/Wants.
Nobody needs private property, that’s reserved for nobility, for they only know how to use it properly.
Nobody needs a car that can go 130 mph,,, when the legal speed limit is usually no more than 65-75 mph.
Whats up wth that?
nobody NEEDS to chose their own doctors when the state certifies all doctor’s duly licensed.
Equalization of Opportunity Act.
Disagree...depends on the application. As in everything you need to pick the right tool for the job.
Some easy work-arounds that make any magazine size limit useless:
1. Bring 2 guns
2. Bring an extra magazine
3. Procure one of the millions that are out there, David Gregory style
4. Make your own...I’m pretty sure that I could use the bodies of 2 magazines to create one big one, if I were a sociopathic maniac who was willing to spend months in preparation for my big day.
You want to make liberal heads explode? Here’s a few more:
Nobody needs video games or Hollywood movies. They are simulators for mass murder. Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 kill.
Nobody in the msm needs electronic media to report the news. The Founders could have never foreseen technology beyond the single page printing press.
Unfortunately there is a sizable population of liberal nitwits populating our college faculties who would agree with most of the items in this list.
After all, trained journalists and academics express pretty much the whole range of ideas themselves. I'm not sure why untrained, random citizens need to go around voicing their opinions all the time - sometimes that activity can be dangerous for themselves and other people around them.
I need 10 ten-megatonners. I can take them separately boxed, that’ll be just fine. I also need a list of the ten cities with the highest liberal population density.
I sure don’t need this damn assault president.
Much confusion would have been averted had they been called the “Bill of Government Restrictions”.
Nobody needs a group of people telling citizens what nobody needs.
...so repealing ObamaCare would save more lives than any gun ban that can be dreamed up by the left...
Nobody needs to have sex. The planet is already overpopulated.
You don’t need indoor plumbing either. ;-)
