Definitions vary, but several states identify magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, 15 rounds or 20 rounds of ammunition as “high capacity,” while other states do not regulate magazine sizes. Gun-control advocates claim that while restrictions on magazine size may not stop mass shootings, they may limit the carnage if a shooter must pause to reload. Contrary to such opinions, research shows no significant association between homicide rates and large-capacity ammunition magazine bans.
