Thomas Sowell is the closest thing I have to a political hero. I agree with him on nearly everything. I agree here, too, but he knows full well gun control is an EMOTIONAL issue. Like the debt and spending, liberals don't react to facts. They don't care about $16 trillion in debt. They care about "helping people."
The number of rounds (not "bullets") a magazine can hold is also emotional. If we limit them to ten, liberals will move to eliminate magazines altogether because it's not about magazines. It's about eliminating guns from society. First assault rifles, then handguns, then hunting rifles, and shotguns. That makes them FEEL safer and feelings are all that matter. Facts are a waste of time.
