a thought on colorado

Aside from boilerplate shouting about The Only Constitutional Amendment That Conservatives Recognize, has anybody actually made the case as to why 100-round drums or 33-round clips should be legal? I don’t understand how outlawing these things would violate the Second Amendment, since nobody is curtailing anybody’s right to own any gun or type of gun. What is the actual justification for their continued legality? Self-defense? Because if you couldn’t bring an attacker down in the first 15 shots, you’re sure to stop him with the next 18? Hunting? What kind of deer are we hunting that require a hundred semi-automatic rounds to bring down? Are they cyborg deer? Because maybe if they were cyborg deer, I could understand.

Seriously, what am I missing?
