Regarding magazine capacity limits and "assault weapon" bans, our politicans should learn from recent history. On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris walked into Columbine High School carrying a HiPoint 995 carbine - a weapon specifically designed to be compliant with the AWB of 1994. Magazines were limited to 10 rounds. Eric Harris had 13 fully loaded 10-round magazines.
What the hell difference does a magazine limit make when someone is driven to commit mass murder?
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."
- John Adams
