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?
