As an NRA member said yesterday, you never need more than 3 rounds when you are hunting and seldom get a chance for more than 1 good shot. I've owned a rifle for more than forty years but haven't shot it in 30.

In this day to entertain the idea we need to have guns to defends ourselves against invaders is looking at the modern world through an 18th century mindset. Today you would need an ICBM to defend the country, so gun ownership is really a historical oddity from our distant past.

Furthermore, Congress should immediately outlaw any possession of a multi-round magazine holding more than 3 rounds by anyone other than military or law enforcement personnel, if that.

We do not need large capacity magazines for guns, but we do need civility and common sense.
