You know he has hemophilia because you saw it on his player-profile on ESPN in the week leading up to the superbowl. Casual bystander status RECONFIRMED.

Judge William B. Traxler Jr. said his colleagues have “gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.”

Re: From my cold, dead. hands! Except in Detroit and Chicago

The right to defend others is well-established across most(all?) jurisdictions. Anyone arguing against it is making the pro-gun control side look bad.
Usually the right to defend oneself or others excludes excessive force and sometimes expect retreat. That's why lethal force is rarely justified.
Unfortunately some US states disagree (see stand your ground).

Important hypothetical: If you see a guy fighting 30 5 year olds as part of the classic challenge, which side do you help?

I guess that depends on whether you have a high capacity magazine.

PSA: "Stand Your Ground" doesn't mean you can shoot doofuses who text during movies.

Quote:
Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves, according to a criminal complaint, and Reeves then took out his handgun and fired at Oulson, killing him.

Defense attorneys asked the judge to dismiss the murder charge under the "stand your ground" law that allows residents to use deadly force when they fear death or great bodily harm.

In the Trump era, however, that fear is gone, and with it the market’s urgency to beat the clock on the next “commonsense” gun ban. That’s helped nudge iconic gunmakers Colt and Remington to lay off hundreds of workers and shut down entire divisions of their companies, forced manufacturers to close their doors, and prompted retailers and distributors to offer deep discounts on firearms, with one offering an AR-15 rifle at prices below even the cheapest handguns.

While the Obama years might have been a dark time for gun rights, the Democrat president was a boon for gun retailers and manufacturers (a fact Obama has admitted himself). Each time the needle ticked further in the direction of gun restriction, Americans flocked to their local gun store and plunked down cash for more irons.

I have to give it to him, standard capacity does sound a lot more mundane and benign than "high capacity". If that's the objective, well done.

What do they call an actually higher than standard clip, high-high capacity? Like, smaller than a banana clip, but more rounds than a standard one, or is there no such thing? I wouldn't know.
