The same basic reasoning works for magazine limits. Ask them what they hope to accomplish by restricting standard capacity magazines. Chances are the answer will be to reduce the number of people who die in mass shootings. Then point out that in 2012 there were fewer than 20 mass shootings (3 or more people) resulting in fewer than 100 deaths. You are literally more likely to be struck by lightning than to be involved in one of these things.
