    Bulletproof fucking backpacks, yep that'll stop the next psycho gamer having a Neo fantasy from slaughtering a classroom.

    Bulletproof fucking backpacks.

    Reactionary security measures...gotta love em.
    If you can get bulletproof bags so easily, what's stopping another crazy person from buying a heap of them and then modifying them into a bulletproof suit before going on a shooting spree?

    All our body armour requires licensing here too.

    You'll buy a modified version of the assault riffle you want. 9/11, the Patriot Act and the formation of the TSA shows me that this will be the tipping point. Of course when the world ends tomorrow it won't matter.
    Might not be able to get decent mags though. That's the big problem in MA... anything over 10 rounds has to be pre-'94.

    Do you remember better than I do? He had some title that implied he was the local gun expert, right? I think they showed him handling the shotgun, looking about as competent a 14 year old boy with his first encounter with a vagina. I'd heard many self-proclaimed gun experts talking nonsense by then, and many more since. BARRELSHROUD

    I am glad I got my AK when I did. I paid $600 for a Maadi with 3 30 Rd mags and 1000rds of Wolf hollow points almost a year ago. Now I am seeing WASR-10s going for close to $1000.

    Ridiculous.

    IIRC that's what happened. It looked like he thought it was a high round magazine like this:

    Mistakes happen, but it was the title that made me laugh.

    I hate you and Scrapper. Jackasses. Have you seen the jump magazine prizes? I've been looking at the 100+ magazines and they are at least 150 to 200 more. Ammo has started going up.

    America needs manufacturing jobs.

    Adam Lanza was heavily body armored and now there is a family friend's statement that he may have sunk into depression because his mother wouldn't let him join the Marine Corps.

    Lanza, 20, harbored a dream of joining the military after he stopped taking college-level courses at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, said a local merchant who knew Nancy and her son.

    Lanza first made his military aspirations known when he was 17, about the time his older brother Ryan was attending Quinnipiac University in Hamden.

    The Adam Lanza who went on a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last Friday was outfitted for war. Only his targets were civilian, not military.

    I am not a veteran, but in my mind, if he's 20 and stopped by his mom not "letting" him join I don't think he would have made the cut.

    Can we at least have an assault rifle ban for families that include creepy, male, 20-something loners?
