So instead of spending ~30 seconds reloading he could be made to spend ~90 seconds reloading if he was denied 30-round magazines.That was a bunch of interesting math. But the point remains that if we ban big clips, gradually big clips will become less commmon, just as the ban on manufacturing and importation of full auto weapons has made them rare. I would argue that the 60 seconds a "large-capacity" magazine ban would cost an active shooter in the midst of his evildoing would in all likelihood save zero lives on average.Many of the shooting episodes talk about people fleeing whenthe shooter is temporarily distracted/reloading... whatever. Lives on average is not a phrase you'd be brazenly profer if it were your grandchildren mowed down in McDonalds. If it's that great an infringment on your freedom, since you're okay with class 3 license and regs for full auto weapons, how about a license and regs for semi-auto gun owners? Combined with federal recording of all buys/sells, this would go a long way to keeping guns out of the wrong hands.
