Don't take me wrong, but the ability to compete in matches under current rules is laughably insignificant when talking about saving the lives of young children
This would be very true, if in fact the ban of 30 round magazines would in fact save the lives of young children. I agree that using sports as an argument to keep 30 round magazines is not a strong argument. What we need to be concentrating on is our second amendment rights.
The reason for my post, was the fact that nobody recognizes a lawful purpose for a 30 round magazine. It seems as though the only place that anti-gunners and even people who are neutral on the subject get there information are from TV personalities who are the least educated when it comes to firearms.
