    The guy who shot Gabby Giffords and others was stopped by a bystander because he had to stop shooting to reload.

    It doesn't make a difference. The Sandy Hook shooter was reloading after firing only half a clip. It wasn't a big deal to him. With a little practice, you can reload in less than a second.

    Alert:
    This topic is quite specifically aimed at why hiccap mags are needed vs their obvious danger to us all.

    Please stick to the subject.

    Correction: he had already reloaded and the gun jammed.
    Loughner fired all 31 bullets in the magazine and was reloading when a woman in the crowd, already wounded, attempted to grab the gun from him. He finally changed the magazine and tried to fire, but the gun jammed. Meanwhile, two men from the crowd grabbed him and subdued him, officials said.

    More shots at whom, or what? See, that is the question. Unless you specifically need them to have more bullets to put into people, then for what purpose are they needed?

    Please answer the OP basic question:
    Is their slight benefit to very few worth their danger to us all?

    Wiping out 50 rattlesnakes in a den?

    Its easier to take them all out when they are grouped together rather than stopping and having them run off and then trying to find them in the brush.
