Normal capacity magazines serve a purpose, it is what the firearm is designed to use. They are more reliable than aftermarket neutered magazines nine times out of ten. I would rather not reload if I don't have to, the criminals won't be reloading.


Sounds like you are ready for a home invasion. Are you hoping for one?

We are never safe in a free country, but oversized ammo mags don't serve any purpose other then someone wanting to play soldier at home. Thats just fine, just reload after 10 rounds.
So because that one person was able to do it one one shot every one else can?

And every home invasion is just one person who is not on drugs like meth or PCP that prevents them from feeling pain?

Yes they serve a purpose, self defense just because you are unwilling or unable to understand and aspect this fact does not make it not true.

Tell that to people who have survived home invasions.

Tell that toany women who has to work late, or has to work in a bad side of town, ask the stripper with a abusive ex-boyfriend now turned stalker who can bench press 400 lbs that her Glock 19 (with a 17 round mag) that it does not make her safer.

Tell that to the ranchers who live on the US/Mexico Border who have to put up with 20 to 40 people armed with fully automatic AK47 and Belt Fed PKMs. running drugs across their land, knowing the police will not come, and if they do call, they will kill them...Ask him if his AR15 with a suppress and a beta mag makes him safer.

Tell that to people People who survived the L.A Riots

Tell that to people who survived the lawlessness after a major Hurricane.

Tell that homeowner who has just realized the term "This Area is "Up and Coming"" really means hell hole and is never hearing the sounds of some thugs trying to break into his house and at best rob him, and at worse might kill and or rape his wife and kids..Tell him his Sagia 12 (with a self defense mag) does not make him safer...

You just use a few isolated events to try and limit the rights of other people...

So because criminals do not care and obey the law, everyone else needs to suffer by having their rights infringed upon?

Because some people cant behave we all have to lose our rights?

Thank you Gov Quinn for proving leftist can never be trusted with any power at any time, for any reason.
I doubt if he knows what an "assault" weapon is.

That was a perfect analogy!

I guess owning car insurance is hoping for a crash.

They just can't get their heads around the intimidation aspect. IF everyone can own small arms, in any configuration, and we do not broadcast gun free zones, we will all be safer for it. Thugs are intimidated the most by not knowing who is and who is not armed.

Quinn is toast in the upcoming election and he knows it - he is madly pushing any and every liberal hot button he can in a last ditch effort to stay in office.

Yes indeed, it has been proven that in states that limit mag capacity the crime rate goes down and violence from gang acrivity and drug sales is almost eliminated!

From the Diane Degette school of gunsmithing and sociology.

This Gov needs to be seen for what he is..... a know nothing hack who pretends to address the violence in his state. Anyone who thinks his proposal has any promise of reducing gang violence is as overwhe,lmed as the Gov is.
