We should at least ban high round magazines in order to prevent such horrific carnage. If he had not used a semi-auto pistol with high round magazines the death toll would be significantly reduced. That's just plain fact. We should also disallow private non-licensed dealers from selling guns without background checks.

there's no such thing as "private unlicensed dealers".
there are private citizens selling their own personal property,but they are not considered "dealers" by ATF. (or any rational persons)
Private citizens are PROHIBITED by law from using the NICS background check system. the FBI won't allow it.
you truly are ignorant of gun issues.

During the LA riots of 1992,the police REFUSED to enter the riot zone to protect citizens,and Korean shopkeepers used "assault weapons" to hold off the rioting mob that came to burn them and their families alive in their shops/homes. that's just ONE good reason,not that we need ANY reason to own them.
it also is justification for 30 round magazines,you need firepower to hold off a riot mob.
Not that we need any justification.

You've never heard of magazine reloading? This bonehead did it several times.

The People's Democratic Republic of California instituted a 10 round magazine limit. People just bought more magazines.
