    is a mistake.  Either someone is law-abiding or not, and whether the weapon holds 10 rounds or 15 is nearly irrelevant if the owner is responsible and law-abiding.

    Far better that we focus on keeping the weapons out of the hands of those would not be such - through licensing and background investigations, establishing security standards for safe storage and, to help the victims, require the insurance coverage.

      Many people are perfectly law-abiding right up to the moment they become murderers. Seung-Hui Cho, Jared Loughner and James Holmes had no criminal records and legally owned their guns right up to the moment they went on shooting sprees. The same dynamic plays out over and over on a smaller scale where people are law-abiding gun owners until they shoot their girlfriend, wife, co-worker, classmate, etc.
