What is the life threatening difference between a Clip and a Magazine?

You claim to have been in several career's, all of which require the use of correct terminology. In at least one of those careers it would have been drilled into you so deeply that it would become second nature to always do it. And you would never have referred to a magazine as a clip or vice versa.

You know, you could have just answered it a hundred times by now. And, no, I don't know. And I don't appreciate being told what I do or do not. I read thousands of posts here weekly, so don't take it personally if I don't remember every nuance.

So again, I ask: Do you support restrictions on fully-automatic firearms or not?

Mr. Kevvy... I answered that and you know that.


If I did, I would not have asked. Perhaps I missed it. So I am asking again.

As Gary has pointed out, over 99% of legal fully-automatic rifle owners (who are properly vetted) have not used theirs to "murder, rape, mutilate" either. So your argument can be used to claim they they should be allowed without restriction as well. Should they?

Since over 99% of semiautomatic rifle owners will not use their guns to murder, rape, mutilate, etc. That you, I and others disagree, is just that, a personal disagreement.


We should allow personal nukes then... I'm sure the vast majority of them will be used defensively by law-abiding citizens.
(Yes, I know I'm exaggerating but there's a point to it.)

This is worth a read as it is very similar. I notice that the Mirror article still calls the perpetrators "Asian", so it appears they have not learned anything from this. The Wikipedia article addresses this as well:

The UK Hindu Council and the Sikh Federation asked that the perpetrators be described as Pakistani Muslims, rather than Asian.


Note that the prosecutor: "himself a Muslim, made the decision in 2011 to prosecute the Rochdale child sex abuse ring after the CPS had turned the case down. Responding to the Jay report, he argued that the abuse had no basis in Islam: 'Islam says that alcohol, drugs, rape and abuse are all forbidden, yet these men were surrounded by all of these things.'"

However, coming from a culture that has established a religious basis for routinely treating women as second-class citizens whose pleas for help against abuse from males are often ignored would certainly be a contributing factor.

I'm just amazed that it can still be believed that the U.S. has some exceptional freedom that this separation of power somehow guarantees, when black people lived in chains for three centuries and as second or third-class citizens for another century after that, when native Americans were massacred and forced onto reservations, when over a hundred thousand law-abiding citizens were stripped of their property and imprisoned in internment camps merely for having Japanese ancestry, when it still has the highest incarceration rate of any nation on Earth (oh, second to the Seychelles, a tiny archipelago with a population of about a hundred thousand.)

Neither guns nor the Constitution seemed to work for them as a bulwark against governmental tyranny, did they? Then again, I'm merely a foreigner, so cannot be expected to comprehend such intricacies.

Hah... I think our new joke name for Kim should be "Yawn Sigh Oh".

I reaffirm what I said earlier: I think that if Donald Trump can pull this off and get North and South Korea peacefully talking and end the brinkmanship on both sides, this would be re-election material and I would concur that he had earned it. Whatever chaos may or may not be going on behind closed doors in Washington, so far he seems to be doing some good things.

Here is the major announcement indicated below:

Trump accepts invitation to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

North Korea’s belligerent leader, Kim Jong Un, has asked President Trump for talks and Trump has agreed to meet him “by May,” South Korea’s national security adviser said at the White House Thursday after delivering the invitation to the American president.

Kim has also committed to stopping nuclear and missile testing, even during joint military drills in South Korea next month, Chung Eui-yong told reporters in Washington.

After a year in which North Korea fired inter-continental ballistic missiles capable of reaching all of the United States and tested what is widely thought to have been a hydrogen bomb, such a moratorium would be welcomed by the U.S. and the world.

Kim Jong Un “expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible,” Chung said. “President Trump said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May.” Chung did not provide any information on where the meeting would be. In Seoul, the presidential Blue House clarified that the meeting would occur by the end of May.

But Mr. Kevvy, "full-auto firearms, short-barrelled rifles, short-barrelled shotguns, silencers and hand grenades" are legal for private citizens to own in the USA...


Yes, but not for everyone... and that is precisely the point. The more deadly something is, the more the owner should have to be vetted in order to acquire it. For example, we don't allow someone to drive a train or an eighteen-wheeler with the same level of training and licensing we do for a sedan. All we need to do is recognize that it's been a mistake up to this point to have large-capacity magazine semi-automatic firearms in the "sedan" side.

A forcibly disarmed person is a slave.


Then you are already a slave... you were forcibly disarmed of your full-auto firearms, short-barrelled rifles, short-barrelled shotguns, silencers and hand grenades in 1934.

Still no takers on why this is OK but restricting semi-auto assault rifles with large magazines is not. Oh, right... the impending zombie apocalypse.

Well, from what I have seen in this thread, you've argued rather endlessly that the "right" to be mass-murdered by a lunatic with unrestricted access is to military-class weaponry, and to to live in fear of being so, is a distinctly American value, so I don't think you're any better.

The Constitution was not written to restrain the citizens' behavior. It was written to restrain the government's behavior.

That is our difference. The only country in the world to do so.


Have you actually read any other nations' constitutions? I'm rather doubting it from that last sentence. :^p

Yes, I have no idea how to change our Culture within the next few years or perhaps decades.


Changing your culture or constitution is not required. As I've pointed out numerous times (still without a reply as to why this isn't workable) fully-auto firearms were defined as weapons of war, not of self-defense, sport or hunting, and are heavily restricted, and this was found to be constitutional. So, the same can be done with semi-auto rifles and pistols with magazine sizes greater than a certain number of rounds... ie 6 or 7, ban anything that makes a semi- into a full-auto (ie bump stocks.) If someone wants one, they can be validated (ie register the weapon with the police, undergo a background and mental heath check, and repeat it periodically.)

I'm only agreeing with Mr. Reagan and Trump here... you'll have to take it up with them. :^p

(I also find it strange that the same people who hold up the police as heroes and want to give extended powers and minimal oversight to them tend to be the most strongly opposed to registering one's firearms with them. If they are heroes they won't go participating in "tyranny" by sharing this with any gun-grabber regime, right?)

Hi Mr. Kevvy. Yes, I knew he would post something before your response to my reply regarding your fascinating observation and question


I'm completely in agreement with him... I've asked you several times on several issues what your proposed solutions are and nothing; instead you constantly criticize others' solutions, and worse, overdramatize discussion into "scolding" as you did below. Well, last last time I checked, this was a discussion forum... that's what we do here. Nothing I write will likely affect anything anyways, being merely an uninformed foreigner and all.

So, what do you propose to improve the situation?

I did read everything and saw no relevance to what I was responding to.


It would have been hypocritical if he was suggesting others to have to undergo verification that he wasn't willing to himself, but this is not the case:

"...but unlike you have been properly vetted by Anti-Terrorist Police, and had my Mental Health subject to scrutiny, before being authorised to legally possess, and I'm happy with the system..."


So far I haven't seen a single person in this thread even suggest that it's a good idea to ban all firearms, or even confiscate them... proper background and mental health checks and perhaps ownership restrictions only for semi-automatic assault weapons (like that old lefty Ronald Reagan wanted) is as far as anyone has gone.

And I'm still awaiting anyone to offer an explanation why they can be constitutionally OK with full-auto rifles being restricted but not OK with semi-autos...
