The Argument Against Banning ‘High’ Capacity Magazines

In the coming days, CBS’s 60 Minutes is going to air an interview with parents who lost a child in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. One of the issues that cropped up during the discussion is Connecticut’s recent decision to ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

“The legislature has decided to limit the size of magazines to 10 rounds in Connecticut,” said Television Journalist Scott Pelley to the group, “The gunman at Sandy Hook was using magazines holding 30 rounds; now, I’ve heard the argument made that you can change these magazine clips [sic] in these rifles in less than two seconds, so what difference does it make?”

One of the fathers responded by saying, “Well, there was one instance where it wasn’t two seconds. And it allowed 11 kids to get out of a classroom.”
