1) As a gun owner, parent, teacher and American, I believe that there is no legitimate reason for civilians (such as myself) to own weapons capable of firing more than 10 shots before reloading. A 30 rounds mag (typical of AR15 or AK47-type assault rifles) can do as much or more damage as a hand grenade.
2) Hunters don't need 11 shots in a row, unless they’re hunting wild hogs, and a couple guys with 10 rounds each will do the job.
3) There are already too many assault weapons in circulation. We need to stop adding to the problem. I am not advocating the confiscation of legally-owned weapons. Instead, I am advocating that a finite amount of them are in circulation, as opposed to an infinite amount, growing every year.
