21. No, it was in a class building. I've taken classes in there.

It's laid out just like a school is: rooms along a central hallway, on multiple floors. The actual mass shooting period was 10 minutes, just like with Lanza.

And if he used semi-automatics, that should factor into it, as well because if he needed to reload frequently, there would have been more opportunities for someone to stop him.

He used semi-automatics with standard magazine sizes. Just like Lanza. But his were handguns and Lanza's was a rifle.

Banning assault weapons and high-capacity clips will get my vote.

I don't see any problem with limiting magazine sizes, though Cho stands as a warning that mass shooters don't need big magazines, just a lot of small magazines.

Like I've said, I don't think anybody's rights are infringed by banning AR-15's, I just also don't see a point to it.
