If that's happening, there is a much larger underlying problem than simple gun control.

1. yes you can, look at 5 gallon jugs
2. analogy still holds true. is it easy,practical to carry around a 90+round mag with you? there comes a point when too many mags becomes impractical.

Monsters inc 3d was tolerable as its got good actors in Crystal/Goodman and isn't as juvenile as Toy Story. Aside from Cars, duh, still like Wall-E the best of Pixar flicks. At least I've got opening of remote control Red Bull F1 car to look fwd to followed by kids bedtime and my pushing of limits wasting of batteries... FYI both slot car tracks fully functional after major garage reorg... Fun with beers and gambling....

Quoi? I don't see how a bracelet or strap can affect its timekeeping abilities, particularly since many watches are also designed and sold with a bracelet.

whos to say how dangerious a gun is? all guns are dangerious when not used properly. My "safest" (model least likely to be seen in a mass shooting) would be my 28" mossberg 500 12gauge doesn't seem very dangerious, but what if I take 30 seconds and change the barrel to a 18"?

I agree with this
