Changing a magazine could mean life or death for someone in those circumstances. It might mean the person is stopped by interference from authorities or civilians, it's a brief period of vulnerability. It might mean someone flees or whatever, I don't know. It's kind of ridiculous to even speculate to be honest. In general I don't see the purpose of large magazines for the civilian population anyway but I'm one of those weird Republicans who doesn't "get" the gun culture in this country anyway so *shrug*

Personally I think it's going to be a combination of factors, not any single initiative but most importantly people have to stop worshipping guns, it all starts with the underlying culture. That could take generations.
You're talking about banning the most common magazines in the world because you want to do something, even though you have no idea what effect it would actually have, if any. That's not rational. Nor is calling people's defense of their rights "gun worship". You don't engage in a productive dialog with that kind of attack on people's character.

I've offered up some ideas for things that might actually help in previous threads on this subject. But honestly, when you're talking about the difference between a 10 or 20 round mag and a 30 or whatever, you're not addressing the real problem. Once someone has started shooting up a school or a mall or whatever, that stuff is just quibbling over details that the shooter would have had more than enough time to plan around.
