I understand, and believe me, it's not easy for me to come out in support of any form of gun control. It is just that I think the "worst" is happening more and more and I believe that high cap mags are among the things these creeps are using to get it done. High cap mags are more useful to suicidal maniacs then they are to me. I can live without them and I think more innocent people might survive if they were done away with.
I refrain from further debate regarding mag capacity because I've made the only points I really have to make on the subject. I always want to stress that I see the real problem as a deep spiritual one. A problem that cannot be solved with background checks, mental health reviews or gun control. We are a nation in need of conversion and mass shootings are but one symptom.
Deebz , well said. JPH, there is a major flaw with your argument for reducing mag sizes. I can legally own a cannon under the 2A., and with only one round, I could do much worse than with a 30rd mag. i could steal a tank (it has been done before) or build a bomb from fertilizer and fuel (that could have been driven into the school or laid against the walls) It doesn't matter how many bullets,or the size of the gun, it's features, or it's cost. The only thing that matters, is the man (or woman) behind that weapon.
Now, assuming gun free zones go away, and you have your legally reduced clip in your CCW, And God forbid, you have to use it to protect your wife, or kids, your opponent has already shown a willful disregard for laws. Having a dozen 30rd mags, against your 7 bullets, seems to me to be a very steep disadvantage! especially when you have nothing but a theater seat back or two for cover, as you cover your loved one's retreat. I guarantee you, if I were restricted to seven bullets in the gun, and felt I might need them, I would simply carry more guns. A restricted magazine gains nothing, but another gun on site.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
