What the gun prohibitionists won't tell you about magazine capacity limits

Yesterday, I discussed the growing effort for a renewed ban of so-called "assault weapons." Such bans invariably incorporate a limit on the magazine capacity--the now expired federal ban stipulated ten rounds as the acceptable limit. The supposed rationale is that without "high capacity" (translation: normal capacity) magazines, a deranged killer will not be able to inflict as much carnage as he would if he had to reload more often.

Today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner column is up, taking a look at magazine capacity limit laws. Please give it a look, and spread the word.

By the way, I don't know what happened yesterday, but St. Louis GRE had a very big day--I wish I knew whom to thank for that. Since I don't, I'll just assume it's my loyal readers (both of you must have been extremely busy)--thanks, guys!
