So one lunatic (James Holmes) using a large capacity magazine brought on this ban. So when is the next lunatic that abuses a 15 round magazine going to bring on another ban?
ONE lunatic never justifies anything - let alone something this sweeping and far-reaching. If we're going to apply this attitude, let's ban alcohol or at least limit the size and quantity of bottles that can be bought, and demand that purchasers pass background checks.
After all, more people are killed in drunken driving crashes than are murdered with guns, and it IS about "saving lives," right??
Or is it?
