    Glad I got a laugh out of you. The classics still work if they elicit a reaction. Nice try in changing the subject to a broader insult to those with an open mind, but as with any article or opinion, the facts don’t change. The new service is free to subscribers, the service provides an added level of protection for no additional cost and your initial statement is nonsense. If you think anyone on this earth owes you anything, then please let some of what you read here sink in for a reality check. Our economy is based on providing goods and services that people want and need for a cost. I know that is a lot of information for you to handle, but take some time and think about it…. then come on back and we’ll gladly accept your humble apology.

    Seriously JeanR…. first of all, the new email service is FREE for subscribers, so he isn’t making any additional money (or fleecing as you would say) while providing a new service to subscribers. Did you even read the article or just make assumptions based on your personal bias? Secondly, this would actually be a service that has some incremental value over existing email services. Security, anonymity and privacy are rare and valuable features these days. If you don’t like what Glenn is doing, then stop coming here. If you think Glenn “Owes” you something, then you definitely have not been listening or learning. Please look up capitalism…. the definition may shock you though, so call Mommy down to the basement when you read it so she can comfort you and make you feel special again.

    Great, so let’s have all the victims bring a knife to a gunfight. How’s that sound to you? You are simply not getting this. Bad guys will NOT obey this law and it only puts law-abiding victims at a further disadvantage vs criminals. Sinking in yet?????

    Please read more carefully, the actual time to drop a magazine and put in a new one is only a couple of seconds. Now if you can time it perfectly and count the rounds spent (assuming the perp is choosing to obey this one misdemeanor while violating multiple felonies) and are within a few feet of the perp when he is reloading, then yes you may be able to tackle the guy. On the other hand, what is the likelihood that a felon is going to obey the magazine restriction. The only thing this law does is put the law-abiding victims at a greater disadvantage vs the criminal. That’s OK I guess in your mind, but when Mr. Bad Guy breaks down my door, I want as much lead flying from the muzzle of my gun as possible.
