I agree with everything you said in your last two responses. I think this point is especially important to understand. I like shooting/owning guns but they aren't necessary. Magazine size (and even caliber) restrictions would make shooting slightly more tedious, but if that means the next time some psycho starts shooting random people in a public place they can only get 10-15 shots off before reloading, I'm game. As for home defense, there's no reason you need more than 6 shots from a shotgun to stop a home intruder except for being unfamiliar and untrained with your weapon. I have a 10/22 with a 10 round magazine for home defense since I'm confident enough in my shot placement and ability under pressure. I don't need an something chambered in 5.56 to stop the theoretical boogieman who I know I'm likely to never encounter.

Nobody is coming to "take our guns" either. When's the last time a Democrat bypassed the constitution and order the removal of firearms from lawful owners? The current administration has violated the US constitution several times (that we know of right now.) Anyways, no amount of gun toting patriots is gonna be able to stop a line of tanks with their $1000+ AR build even if they did come for our guns or whatever. Our defense spending is too high, our military technology is too advanced. Insurgents in the middle east can get away with Toyota pickups with DSHKA's in the back and AK's cause it's not far off from what their governments are using. Their militaries are usually corrupt, undertrained, and underfunded.

It's just not gonna happen here; worrying about overthrowing the theoretical tyrannical government is just bonkers when you could invest time and effort into holding politicians accountable and ensuring the right people (those who don't prey off of your fears and emotions, and instead use factual data to back up their views and policies) are in office.
