One of the primary tactics of gun banners is to limit the capacity of magazines, ostensibly for safety reasons. To their way of thinking, reduced capacity magazines require shooters to reload more often, which will reduce the death toll in mass shooting attacks. Of course, safety has nothing to do with it. Controlling and disarming the law-abiding population is always the goal, and if semiautomatic handguns cannot be banned, any step that will inconvenience or harry their owners must be pursued with the hope that will lead to greater and more onerous restrictions in the future . . .
