I can own 30 round mags but since I am prone a lot they don't work for me and I have never needed 30 rounds without stopping.
Semi vs auto... big difference
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb

but there are several types of gun banners
1) the first are those who actually promulgate gun ban legislation-these are power hungry assholes who push gun bans mainly for political reasons-those who oppose their political agendas tend to own guns some in this group are those who probably need shooting by honest people but most are party hacks and politicians
a subgroup is politicians who use gun control as a shield against the often effective claims that these liberal politicans are weak on crime. Nixon's attack on the dems during the race riots were what caused the dems to adopt gun control as a strategy.
2) the second group are the pillow headed idealists who are unable to think logically. They see dead children or shopkeepers and figure banning guns will keep people who commit capital murder from having guns. Their intentions are not nearly as pernicious as the first group but they are impervious to logic or evidence. ONce one has adopted the FAITH BASED idiocy that gun control=crime control, they are a lost cause and will continue to buy into gun restrictions, then bans, then confiscations. They are religious fanatics
a subset of that group is what I call "the racist country club wife set" These are the rich pampered trophy wives who don't mind their husbands or "people like them" having guns, they just don't want the poor-especially blacks-from having guns. I ran into tons of these when I was a general counsel and lobbyist for an NRA affiliate.
3) then you have the "Projectors". These are people who are afraid of guns. They cannot handle guns without having bouts of incontinence. They figure if they had to use a gun under stress they would shoot themselves or their wife or husband. They assume the rest of us are as incompetent as they are and want laws preventing others from having guns out of the fear we'd be as dangerous as they would be
4) the last is the "they just need shooting" crowd. Criminals are HUGE supporters of gun bans. poll after poll of those doing hard time indicate that thing a professional criminal worries the most about is being killed by a homeowner. Some politicians fit in this category too-its hard to rape and pillage the commoners if the commoners are well armed. rogue knights centuries ago found that plundering villages of freemen in wales wasn't a good idea when 30-40 archers were drawing down on you.
