The Truth About Magazine Capacity

One of our commentators recently emailed TTAG central complaining about our textless links to YouTube videos. He considered it lazy and annoying (some mobile phones don’t display the vids). Laziness has nothing to do with it. Sometimes the video says it all—save the comments that our Armed Intelligentsia add underneath the post. But, as always, point taken. So if you want some piercing insight into this particular video, I’ll say this about that: the battle over magazine capacity goes to the heart of the “debate” over civilian disarmament. A good guy can be trusted with a 30-round ammunition magazine or, for that matter, a flame thrower. A bad guy can’t be trusted with a pair of tweezers. Why should good guys’ self-defense be limited by bad guys?  [h/t Matt in FL]
