Letter to the Editor: AR-15/30-Round Magazines

As everyone should be aware, a lot of people have gone off half-cocked (no pun intended) as a result of the terrible South Florida shooting.  A number of people have a fundamental lack of knowledge and lack of understanding with regard to such types of mass shootings (4 or more fatalities).  Since Columbine in 1999, the vast majority of mass shootings have lasted no more than 10 minutes.  The Virginia Tech (Cho) shooting lasted 11 minutes; Sandy Hook (Adam Lanza) lasted 5 – 9 minutes; San Bernardino lasted 5 minutes;…
