57. It is amazing...

How common sense goes right out the window on this issue.

The AR-15 in and of itself maybe should, maybe should not be banned.

What should definitely be banned is the high capacity mags or drums that hold on the order of 100-200+ rounds. 10 shot mags should be the limit, just like shotguns have a limit of 3+1 (at least where I live, if Game and Fish catch you with the plug removed they will take the shotgun). Even mag cap limits will not stop gun violence but it will reduce the number of injured/dead.

The Tucson shooter had gun clips/magazines that held 33 shots (he was tackled by others when he had to reload). We will never know how many may not have been injured/killed had he had to reload after 10 shots but it is clear the total would have been less.
