Let me try to be open minded and present an anti-gun view point to see if any of us on GT think limiting magazine capacity could be a good idea. My personal view is there should be no magazine limits. But let's put the personal views aside for a moment to see if the anti-gun view has any merit. Two scenarios. A. Joe Killer has 4 magazines, each holding 10 rounds. He has one 9mm evil black semi-auto handgun, and he wants to kill as many as he can at the local mall. He draws his handgun from beneath a trench coat and shoots as many people as he can. He runs out of ammo after 10 rounds, then changes to a fresh magazine and so on, until he is either forcibly stopped or shoots all 40 rounds. B. Same Joe Killer situation, but now with 1 magazine of 40 rounds. Since the magazine is made by RELIABLETECH, it does not jam. He draws his handgun and shoots as many as he can, until he is either forcibly stopped or shoots all 40 rounds. Questions. 1. Are more people likely to be killed and wounded in scenario B than in A? 2. If yes, then is it worth it in terms of public safety versus freedom to pass a 10 round magazine limit law? My own analysis: I believe that on average, more people would be killed or wounded in scenario B than in A. This is because scenario A allows more instances for people to either flee or to forcibly intervene against Joe Killer. I do not believe the difference in killing and wounding between A and B is enough impose upon our freedoms. Thus, I do not believe a magazine limit should be the outcome. But what if there was a scenario C with a 250 round belt-fed magazine and a fully automatic gun of some sort. If such a rig were legal to carry, would Joe Killer be able to kill enough people to change my mind? Since I am pro-gun, I'd like it to be legal to own a fully automatic gun firing from a 250 round belt-fed magazine. I'd want it legal to carry such a gun around. What would keep Joe Killer from legally taking such a rig to a mall and getting ready to kill as many people as he could? Scenario C is the one I struggle with. Many will say it is too hypothetical. But I believe that if enough people voted like me, it would be legal to own and carry such a rig.
