When Connecticut first passed new restrictions limiting magazine capacity for guns, I was able to demonstrate in just over a minute why in at least one aspect it was hastily planned. It just now occurred to me that it’s even worse than I had first thought.
Limiting magazine capacities to 10 rounds is ineffective if there is no limit on the number of guns one can carry on their person. If it’s too dangerous for me to carry a handgun with 13, or 15, or 17 rounds, doesn’t it follow that carrying two handguns with 10 rounds each equally dangerous, if not more so? Two guns allows me to shoot in multiple directions at multiple targets simultaneously.
Am I missing something, or do capacity limits not accomplish what they are intended to?
