Response to SecularMotion (Original post)

2. another misleading statement by the NYT

"Constitutional lawyers, including many conservatives, generally believe that limiting magazine size falls well within the boundaries of recent Supreme Court decisions on gun rights, and evidence suggests that a ban on large magazines would have reduced the number of those killed in mass shootings."

Yes, there are limits that would pass constitutional muster, but that does not mean ALL limits would. It might be hard to argue constitutionally that a ban on all magazines over 30 rounds is a violation of the 2nd amendment, but it would be quite easy to do that if the law banned all magazines over 5 rounds.
