The politicians are tying to sell the theory that reducing capacity of magazines will slow the criminal down so less people will die.First a criminal doesn’t obey the law and use a legislatively reduced capacity magazine. That means that only the law-abiding will have the legislatively reduced capacity magazines. So, it appears the law is designed to hamper the law-abiding in defending themselves.

But, there is another consideation. Really long exended magazines, if kept loaded for a lengthy period have problems with the degradation of their spings which leads to jamming. That would slow the criminal down more than a practiced magazine change as shown in the video below. So as usual in the District of Corruption, it is “it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing”.


Economic lecture on the merits and workings of capitalism. With Prof. Clifton L. Ganus of Harding College, Searcy, Ark. Producer: Fotovox, Inc. / Sponsor: National Education Program, Harding College.

I doubt that this is taught anywhere,  anymore except probably Hillsdale College.
