You are correct about the problem with entering the "need" discussion. The problem with not entering that discussion is that it leaves on answered the challenge of the assertion "no one needs a high-capacity magazine, or more than 10 rounds for legitimate self-defense".
There is another problem with answering the assertion of "no need". I have been in a situation in which a prudent person would have many more than 10 rounds. I did have many more than 10 rounds, and at the time I wish I had more.
However, in describing this event to a journalist who made the "no need" assertion to me, the reaction I received suggested that she placed me beyond normal experience and that I was therefore irrelevant.
