    You need to stop, too.
    You need reading comprehension classes. The INTERMEDIATE cartridge was pioneered by the Germans in WWII with a 'Kurtz' round. They also pioneered the strumgewehr concept.

    Yes it was a tragic event. Yes, we should do everyting that is reasonable to reduce the changes of this type of event happening again.
    The reasonable part is what is up for discussion. For what you may think is reasonable, I may not.
    She knew here son had mental problems and allowed easy access to weapons. By default she is as much to blame as her son. Really both of these people are dumb. No responcible gun owner would have ever allowed that. That is playing with fire.

    You need to learn to make sense when you write. And you still aren't doing it.

    President Obama on Wednesday tapped Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week.
    "The fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing," Obama said.
    The move marks the first concrete step by the White House toward crafting new firearms restrictions.

    This is like taping the Pope to protect abortion.

    When the states formed their compact between themselves, they did not delegate to it their police powers. Those they withheld. The proper responsibilities of the federal government involve inter-state relations and international relations, not police powers inside the states. There is no such provision in the constitution, and this is not at all what the states agree to when they established their compact.

    No doubt he'll plagiarize his policy from the Communist Manifesto.

    If that were the case the Federal ban would have been overturned by the SC.

It is perfectly possible, and logical, to simply impose varying speed limits on the highways rather than to limit the maximum performance of all vehicles. If you are not committing a crime with your gun/vehicle, then what difference does its maximum capability have? Most gun crime does not involve the capability of the firearm but the use that it is put to by its operator.
    So what you're saying is that magazine capacity limits would have no influence on your ability to operate or defend yourself?

    No. Obviously, limiting to one round is rediculous. The point is that limiting the number to 10 is still a death sentence to those 10 "victims" hit well, but requires more judicious use of those rounds. If the idea is to stop mass murder, then you must choose an acceptable victim count; thus the lowest possible number. If the idea is to give the average defensive shooter an ample chance against one (or more) assailants then the number gets higher. If the number is now 30, then is half, 15, better? If 15 is better then how about 7? If 7 is better then how about 3? You see it gets to be simply a numbers game, forgetting that we are talking about the legitmate "legal" sporting, hunting and self defense user and not simply the "illegal" criminal user, that is very likely to "cheat" and get hold of an "illegal" magazine, should they so desire (after all, if you are a homicidal or suicidal then cheating on the magazine size is peanuts to you).
