    Here's a DC City Council member's take:

    What is with doofuses and their obsession with the term "killing machines" in regard to common firearms? I will never get it.

    Well she hasn't studied the home invasion statistics here in NJ - that's for sure. If you have to defend 'home and hearth', as Justice Scalia said, you would be well to study your potential adversaries. They often come in two's and three's in a NJ home invasion, so multiple armed attackers is a likely scenario and 12 bullets just doesn't make me that comfortable.

    If you can't do the job with 4 to 6 rounds per attacker, there's more reason there to be uncomfortable than mag size. :evil:

    Seriously though... those dummies in D.C. really do need to be beat to death with the Clue Bat... :rolleyes:

    In the mean time though, it'd serve a person well to have plenty of loaded mags and to religiously practice their speed reloads.

    Dumb dumb dumb DC

    What a complete bunch of BS.....now instead of 2 15 rd mags I will carry 3 10 rd mags. Are the people for real? I never fail to be amazed at the steps DC polititions will take to keep their hold on those of us who obey the law while protecting those who wish to do us harm. I am blessed to live in AZ. I view DC like that uncle you never want to visit, he is family but I wont sit on his lap......

    They are going with 10 round mags, not 11 rounders

    And yes even lever actions with tubular magazines over 10 rounds will now be banned
