    You asked, "so who is affected by laws that limit magazine capacity?"

    Police are not affected by the ban, and as much as you wannabe, you are not a policeman.

    well your comment was stupid. If police officers use those guns for self defense then obviously there are many other civilians who want them for the same reason and massacring lots of people is rarely the reason

    what is also stupid is that the few people who want them for that reason are the ones least likely to be disarmed by such a law

    and its fun watching you defend police-didn't you brag about fighting the cops when you were some sort of leftwing rioter?

    You can wannabe a cop all you want, it still doesn't make you one! I did not need to use a gun in my fights. I guess that is one of the differences between us.

    You never went up against armed criminals

    I have no desire to be a cop, I had cops answering to me for years. ONe of the differences between us is that I clearly state honestly my motivations on this issue and I don't constantly lie

    Re: Gun Control

    How many magazines with a high capacity are sold each year?

    How many are used in criminal actions? Or, how many are used in shooting other people

    Here's a hint....

    If those numbers are massively skewed towards the notion of "A very small percent actually are used for criminal activity or shooting people" then this answer:

    "Those that wish to kill large numbers of people without reloading."

    Is bull****. The correct answer would be "Those that wish to own a high capacity magazine for their arms"

    Than stop pretending you have the right to carry the same weapons as cops.

    "High-capacity ammunition magazines are the common thread that runs through most mass shootings: giving attackers the ability to fire numerous bullets without reloading. Last week's attack in Arizona joins a long list of mass shootings made possible by the easy availability of high-capacity ammunition magazines: Columbine, Virginia Tech, Luby's, Stockton, and all too many others.

    Earlier this week, Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) and Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) announced plans to introduce federal legislation to ban high-capacity ammunition magazines. A similar ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines was in place for 10 years as part of the now-expired federal assault weapons ban.

    Here are just 10 of the U.S. mass shootings that involved high-capacity ammunition magazines."
