Looks like that .49 more bullets increase the death toll unbelievably.
"Oh--have I mentioned that a study determined that the average number of rounds fired in a gun battle was 2.04 for a revolver, and 2.53 for a semi-automatic--regardless of magazine capacity (Michael McGonigal, John Cole, William Schwab, Donald Kauder, Michael Rotondo, Peter Angood, “Urban firearm deaths: A five-year perspective”, Journal of Trauma, 1993)? How, exactly, would magazine capacity limits (even in the rather unlikely event that criminals would not find a way around them) save lives?"
The 10 round limit was first, last, always just the starting point. They admitted with the previous version that the next step was 6 round limit, after that revolvers would be included as well.
