The Five-Seven holds 20 bullets in it's clip. If you reload it would be 40 shots.. What if the guy holds two Five-Sevens and has extended clips? Then there's automatic pistols with extended clips. It's easier for the Government and Police to stop. It won't matter to much for the people at school during the time. A lot of these guys can build bombs learning on the internet, television and school.
I have read that there was no demonstrable improvement in killings with such weapons or with number of shots fired in mass attacks after the ten year ban. If those numbers are correct then the net effect of this will be to make an 800 dollar rifle become a 2000 dollar rifle nearly overnight. In fact if I had a couple thousand to invest I'd buy 2 today. In 6 months I could probably triple or even quadruple the investment. Banning high capacity magazines will have the same effect BUT in the long run their ban might actually help matters. Making a shooter reload makes him a bit more vulnerable.

I don't think banning AW will help. More attention to mental illness would. This guys mom warned his babysitter not to turn his back on him even for a minute but yet she did. If you have someone in you family that has mental illness maybe you should lock up you guns and seek help for them even if it means locking them up in a mental institution.
