Limiting magazine to 10 rounds would save lives

Gun control? When I first bought a shotgun 60 years ago, it held five shells. The law said I had to plug it to only hold three shells, to be fair to the animals I was hunting.

Today they want to stop people from having a 30-round clip, to only hold 10 shells, to give kids a fairer chance to live and escape from some nut with a 30-round clip. Unbelievable.

Does the NRA think limiting 10 rounds is taking away their rights? They are goofy. It's not political; it's saving people from other people. Or are animals more loved than kids in a school?
