I have hi-cap magazines. My pistol came standard with 2 17 round magazines.
I have several friends who use hi-cap magazines.
None of us have killed anyone.
Let's not penalize those of us who obey the law because one of us wasn't sane.
According to media reports there were so many red flags about this kid that it even creeped out his fellow students and teacher at the community
college he attended. They were quoted as saying "I was afraid to turn around and face the chalkboard for fear that he had a gun" others in this class
were quoted as saying "I sat by the door".
What we need to address is how we treat mental illness in this country. It's all too easy to blame the stuff and people and politics, but when it
comes to the facts we need to do the hard work of dealing with reality and keeping perspective. This Brady background check already covers mental
health issues. If you have been committed to a mental institution in the last 5 years you don't get a gun.
We need to understand and fix the problems that kept this young man from getting the help he needed. If he had received the help he so OBVIOUSLY
needed no one would be talking about this because Mrs. Giffords would be at home enjoying another morning with her husband, a little girl would be
alive, Federal Judge would be taking new sets of cases, a young man would have dreamed up a way to break into political office, and the rest would be
able to sleep when they got home.
