15. Why do you think that?

The proposals made by the President and the bill that will be proposed in the Senate do little to reduce the number of large capacity magazines that are out there. They would ban future production of magazines that hold over ten rounds. Given the fact that there are tens of millions of large capacity mags already in circulation, it's unlikely to do much except drive the price up on pre-ban magazines and rifles.

The AWB as is being proposed in the Senate only eliminates some semi-auto weapons based on cosmetic features that have nothing to do with functionality.

If a person is disturbed enough to commit these types of heinous crimes, the fact that he would have to use a rifle without a pistol grip or flash suppressor, is unlikely to pose much of a deterrent.

The Vice-President is spot on in his analysis.
