Somewhere between that and weapons with large-capacity magazines and high rates of fire we cross a line, IMO.

The line as it is currently drawn is good. Banning large capacity magazines won't be useful except to generate "warm fuzzies". The rate of fire for all current semiautomatics is the same (1 bullet per trigger pull). Rate of fire is associated with fully automatic weapons.

Get behind something that will make a difference. Go after strawman purchases and "bad apple" sellers. Go after gun manufacturers that have poor inventory control. That will make a bigger difference. Figure out the why behind gun homicides and attack that. Regulations only work on the law abiding.
