  •  possibly the fact that Lanza (3+ / 0-)

    was changing his 30 round magazines every 10-15 rounds anyways?

    I read the accounts of the 11 children who thankfully got away.  If he never used any magazine to full capacity, he had plenty of ammunition in any given magazine to get those kids.  The only explanation is either, he had to fix a simple jam while changing magazines (like a stovepipe or double feed), or the police are lying when they report that Lanza was only shooting 10-15 rounds per magazine.

    The Columbine, VA Tech, and NIU shooters did pretty bad using low capacity magizines. NIU woudl have been worse if not for the fast police response time (the NIU public safety building was about 400 yards from cole hall, the chief himself ran to the building and personally lead the entry team, time from first shot to dead shooter, less than 5 minutes and the NIU shooter still had plenty of unexpended ammunition left).

    •  So you're arguing that gunmakers do bad work? (0+ / 0-)

      Oh, yeah, you're RKBA, so probably that's not the right answer. How about less smoke and mirrors, and more actual light!

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
