Here's a little thing to think about...   
   
ALL "mass shootings" (where the assailant was carrying a firearm of some sort, with a total of 4+ civilian casualties as a result) since 1950 were in labeled Gun Free Zones.  (Meaning that it is illegal for a civilian to carry a firearm into that zone, licensed or not)   
   
There have been several more attempts at mass shootings that fail to be recorded in the statistics that gun control advocates use, because they tried shooting up a place where their targets could shoot back.   
   
Also, I'd just want you to take note, the last time we tried to ban something that was a pretty large part of society, (ie the Prohibition amendment) the black market boomed and everyone was buying it illegally to the point where we had to stop because it only made things worse.  America, unfortunately, is in the unique position in being a black market central hub, where banning something as a whole (even something small such as high capacity magazines) is entirely ineffective, and the only true way proven to counter this is literally putting it at gunpoint of people who buy guns to defend themselves.

Every law gets broken at at some point so, by your own logic, why bother having laws at all?

Law enforcement exists for a reason....not all cops screw people over.

>not all cops screw people over

You're true on some occasions. My friend was caught smoking weed, this is in Idaho so the cops are strict about that, and the cop give him a lecture on drug abuse and how it can ruin your life, then he asked for a joint and dropped him off at his house telling him to stay in school and get his work done, then have time for weed.

I'd rather have armed citizens to prevent an attack than to rely on police to stop the shooter after he's killed several people.

But I'm not saying all laws are hindrances. Law maintains order and productivity in society, and of course, a criminal disrupts that because laws are irrelevant to them. We stopped the prohibition act because we couldn't know where the alcohol was going and who was making/owning it, and that was a severe risk.

All I'm trying to say is that it shouldn't be outrageously difficult for a legal citizen to obtain a higher capacity weapon when outlaws can get them with ease or simply steal it from a legal citizen. It provides a distinct disadvantage, and more casualties would be the result. (Refer to post #649)
