    than anything else. That's why I said that restricting magazine capacity is one of the few proposals that has the potential to reduce the severity of a mass shooting. Banning scary looking firearms will do less than fuck all, other than hurt Dems in the midterms.

    I personally think that such a restriction will have the same effect that it had last time which is pretty much zip. So I guess I am really more ambivalent than anything. With that said I would be willing to give on magazine capacity, I see it as a sop, but that would be about it.

    •  See, I'm not willing to go with any bans. (5+ / 0-)

      Because "ban" is short for "criminalize the possession of".

      Think about that. Even if old magazines are grandfathered in, a ban sends people to prison not for what they do, but what they have.

      As such, criminalizing possession should never be offered as a sop - it should always be given the highest level of scrutiny with regard to efficacy.
