I hear Obama wants to take ALL guns away.

We should all probably overact.

I hope every paintball gun you own is a single shot pump...
 
Because in a overmatched firefight, you could easily take out 20 enemies with one shot, at a time... While they are shooting fully auto speed ball guns...
 
 
If the chips came down, and you could only grab one gun to defend yourself... Say, if the government failed because they ran out of money (I know, that couldn NEVER happen...)
 
You would want to grab a gun with only 10 shots?
 
really?
 
My latest pistol falls under this proposed law, as it holds 17 per magazine.

10 shots seems sufficient. I don't expect to be fighting off hordes of enemies anytime soon...until the inevitable zombie apocalypse, of course.

Does anyone wonder why it is that Mexico, a country which until fairly recently had very low rates of drug use, is suddenly rife with substance abuse and extreme gang violence?
There's a pretty simple explanation, and (surprise, surprise), it is tied right in with our failed "war on drugs."

With more drugs being stopped at the border, there is a huge excess across the country. Not being able to get them over to high-profit markets, the Mexican cartels dump drugs off to the locals dirt-cheap.
Example: 1 gram of pure cocaine in the US is valued at $119. In Mexico: $19.

The Mexican drug cartels are now so bold as to put up billboards looking for recruits, offering better pay than the country's police, as well as some measure of protection against other gangs.

So in our futile attempt to keep drugs off of our streets, we flood the markets of our neighbors with cheap product while simultaneously demanding that they "crack down" on drug cartels who are now just as powerful or moreso than the police.

The list of problems that could be solved by legalizing and taxing drugs is astounding. Unfortunately, it "sends the wrong message to children" if you legalize drugs. Since when is the government's job to raise the nation's children?

Good. Maybe they all will develop $500/day drug habits and quit working for $.50 an hour. Or they'll all be so smacked out of their minds that they wont be able to climb fences anymore.

Maybe the problem could be made lesser if there were no black market for drugs.
Of course, that's politically un-palatable, even if it's hard to argue with.

This one makes me really want to facepalm. Seriously? You think the drug and murder rates are just now rising in Mexico? Cancun may have seen an uptake in crime and border cities are as well, but on a whole, Mexico has always been a corrupt and lawless hotbed for drug runners and bandits. The police are corrupt to a point that is unimaginable in most 1st and 2nd world countries. Anyone who stands up to the corruption is summarily executed by the cartels or even the local law enforcement officials (most of which are one in the same). We haven't stopped jack at the border in the way of drugs. We put up fences and they find a way around. Do you really think that cartels are happy selling drugs on the cheap? No, like any other business they'd prefer to be in a high profit market. The guns in Mexico aren't coming from the US. Notice how the article states that automatic weapons are the issue south of the border? They aren't being imported through the US. They're coming from Venezuela, FARC rebels, Cuba, and El Salvador. All countries which have close ties to organized crime and easy access to foreign arms markets.

Legalizing a lot of things would lessen the problem of fighting it, but not the results of the legalization. Are you seriously suggesting legalizing heroin, cocaine, meth etc. ? Really? Why not legalize child pornography as well? We could save all sorts of money. Prostitution, loan sharking, all victimless crimes, lets open the flood gates. Why have any laws? If it feels good do it.
