There is some question as to whether or not he had the bushmaster in the school. If that is the case, he did all of the killing with hand guns with normal sized clips. So restricting the size of the magazine, would have made little difference. Plus, I question whether an extended magazine would have had that large an effect even if he did have it. He is not going to be standing there, flat footed an firing off all 30 or whatever rounds. He is going to fire a few round, assess the environment, fire a few more rounds, perhaps move to another location. During each one of those "pauses" he would have a chance to replace a "normal" sized clip/magazine. If he fired one round after another as fast as he could until the magazine was empty, his accuracy would decrease dramatically.
First off welcome to the forum.However, statistics prove that an armed citizenry is a peaceful society.I don't feel like looking up the stats, but look at Chicago.
That may have been the case, but we're talking about measures that would IMPROVE the likelihood of survival, because there is no one thing that will completely solve the problem. As far as extended magazines, it may only take a few seconds (for a well-trained individual, which alot of school shooters are not), but it may be those few seconds that save some lives.
It does sound simplistic, but new laws really do only affect the law abiding. Means nothing to those intending a massacre.
What are the other society changes?Drugs sex permeate the entertainment media / industry I'm sleepy I may reply to a reply to add more
That's why teachers should carry firearms, along with the principal and other faculty. Just training the school to get under their desks and wait to be killed doesn't work very well.
