At least their definition of hi-cap is 100 rounds, but still, that definition can be changed at a whim.

I never really understood the whole high capacity magazine issue.
If I was stupid enough to use my firearm to shoot up some place it wouldn't matter if my magazines held 5 or 500 bullets.
It takes 2 seconds to push the eject button and slap another magazine in.
It is just another stupid, unhelpful law they can pass to make themselves feel better.
Try to worry more about the laws we do have that are not enforced.

I used that argument on my mother when she said we shouldn't have 30 round magazines. I asked her if a 20 round mag was okay. She said yes, I asked if it's okay if someone shoots up a place with a 20 rd magazine? She said no! I asked if a ten round mag was okay and she said that's okay. Again I asked if it's okay to shoot up a place with a ten round magazine? She said no!! I asked a different way: is it okay if I have a three round magazine and shoot a place up? She said that is not good! Mom finally got the point that a single shot pistol used to shoot someone is worse than a 30-50 round magazine used legally.

I find it interesting the arguments some people make. After a mass killing when someone drives a vehicle through a crowd of innocents or goes on a stabbing spree people often comment that "At least they didn't have a gun!". When I ask "What makes someone murdered by a vehicle or a knife any less heinous than with a gun" they often can't come up with any coherent answers.

When it comes to the speed of reloading, it makes little difference to an attacker if his victims are disarmed and law enforcement is many minutes or even an hour away. Minutes is a lifetime where an active shooter can leisurely take all the time they need. It has been demonstrated many times that even a single shot shotgun can be reloaded and fired at a surprisingly high rate of fire with very little practice.
