What's need, but a second hand emotion?.... Hey Ike, get Tina out of my head!
"Need." There's a word that comes up consistently when you're talking to someone on the left, particularly when the topic is guns. Why does anyone need a "silencer?" Why does anyone need an assault weapon? a small, easily concealable gun? Big, powerful gun? etc. etc. etc. The list goes on and on. With regards to anything they don't like or are ignorant of the contention is that nobody "needs" said thing.
Need is irrelevant. I didn't need bacon on my sandwich this morning, but I wanted it. If something is avaliable and I have the means by which to obtain it nothing more is necessary. I need not justify my need to purchase any particular commodity, not to you, sue, or joe blow the anti-gunner down the hall.
Why do I need more than 10 rounds? Simple. Because I wanted 12, or 15, or 30. Not to mention that if round 12 saves my life then 10 just ain't gonna cut it. The moment someone brings up "need" in a gun control discussion you can be sure they mean to restrict your rights. At that point any technical or practical justifications for your needs plays right into their hands. You've allowed them to put you on the defensive and frame the debate for their benefit. Don't make that mistake.
