No law abiding citizen needs 15-round magazines.
In mass shootings, the shooter is overwhelmed at the point he has to re-load. That provides the rest of us opportunities to stop the carnage.

New Jersey gun control bill passes Assembly, heads to governor’s desk
[First off, it’s a Bill of Rights. Not a Bill of Needs.
Second, magazines of 15, 20, and 30 rounds are “in common use” and hence protected under the Heller decisions.
Third, in mass shootings the shooter should be overwhelmed by incoming lead by about the second or third shot, not the 10th.
Fourth, think about trying to overwhelm this old fart during magazine changes or even during the malfunction clearance:
It’s not going to go well for anyone that tries. The only thing that is stopping someone with even a moderate amount of training is a good guy with a gun or the exhaustion of his ammo supply.
This law is only useful for handicapping those who obey it. Those will overwhelmingly be people protecting innocent lives.
I look forward to the eventual prosecution of Miller and all those who voted for this law which will do nothing but protect criminals.—Joe]
