We need to reinstate the ban on assault magazines that allow mass damage in a short period of time without reloading. #guncontrol—

Jacob Sullum of Reason Magazine helpfully explains:
An “assault magazine,” by the way, is not a periodical you use to squash spiders; it is an ammunition feeding device that holds more than 10 rounds. Such illegitimate magazines, by their very nature, can be used only to attack people and never for self-defense, hunting, or sporting purposes.
