@Good, No, I was just stating that magazines can malfunction for a variety of reasons, even factory defects.

I understand, but...

To be clear to others who may read this, semi automatic firearms are not the only type of firearms that use detachable magazines.

Are you suggesting that the manufacturer could be including magazines that don't function properly in the firearm they sell them with?

I would agree that it is desireable to have more than one magazine for a number of reasons. IMO, unless you are in a competition that requires multiple magazines to get through a competitive event, or your life depended on the magazine feeding properly, multiple magazines for the average civilian shooter is more a "want" than a "need".

IMO a rifle like an AR15 is not well suited for concealed carry as a self defense weapon- especially with the bulk of a 30 round magazine. The need for 6 @ 30 round magazines for self defense inside the home or business is questionable.

The conclusion many people would make about a firearm sold from the factory with a 180 round "capacity" before reloading the magazines is not very favorable in today's anti-gun climate.

Any semi-auto weapon needs to be accompanied by more than one mag. If a mag malfunctions and it is the only one you have.........you now have a very SLOW single shot weapon.

Andrew, I agree with your position on firearm manufacturer's liability.

But, manufacturers' don't help the public's, or more specifically, the anti-gun lobby's perception of them.

As an example, I notice that a specific manufacturer of an AR15 style rifle now sells them (here anyway) with 6 @ 30 round magazines. I believe the manufacturer of an AK47 style also does the same thing, but because I was looking at the AR style, I can't say definitively that the AK style came with that many magazines.

Anyway...

The antis would claim that the only person who would want that many high capacity magazines at the time of purchase must have socially unacceptable intentions for the weapon, and the manufacturer's are enabling that.

Yeah, you *could* read "mass murder in mind" in lieu of "socially unacceptable intentions".

Thank you for your concern, been spending time on more productive things, and in more productive forums, where the individuals actually care about their countrymen, and not what benefits themselves.

Robert!

What the heck? We haven't heard from you for awhile. Did your internet/data connection thaw out? Pay the bill and get reconnected?

Whatever it is, I'm glad to see you're still alive.

Sexy:

"All that would do is encourage the assholes to steal the guns from the rich."

Good, population control. Reduce the surplus rich, or at the least, make them the targets of the poor, and motivate the wealthy to reduce the number of poor. Thus spreading the number of wealthy gun owners who will be targeted, reducing the chance that any specific wealthy individual is targeted. This being the basic idea behind prey herding. The firing wealthy would be the targets, while the core wealthy remain unaffected. Thus a movement of middle class effort to end poverty which compels the poor to seek out weapons by theft.

That, or you'll make a market for 3D printed guns, and improve the economic status of 3D printers working out of their basement.

Here we go. My explanation for how stupid they think all of us are.

They want to kill gun manufacturers with liability lawsuits, which are STUPID, by design.

They compare it to big pharma selling a bad drug, or big auto selling a car with a bad airbag. This is bullshit.

If the airbag, OR WHATEVER, in your car, is defective in some way, and it causes injury by failing to function properly, then they are, and should be, liable for the defect in the product.

If a drug company sells a drug that kills or harms people in an unintended way, then they are, and should be, liable for that defective product.

Merck is not responsible, and should not be liable, if someone takes an overdose of one of their drugs with the intent of killing themselves, and they shouldn't be held accountable even if the family of the suicide idiot sues them for it.

General Motors is not responsible, and should not be liable, if someone drives one of their vehicles up onto a sidewalk, mowing down pedestrians. Like that crazy bitch did in Las Vegas recently.

If Remington sells a rifle with a defective chamber, and it blows up in someones face when they fire it, then they are liable for the defective product. They should not be liable if someone takes a Remington rifle and uses it to kill someone in any act of illegal homicide.
