Why Are Magazine Capacity Limits a Bad Idea?

Because sometimes you shoot the man attacking you 9 times and he is still well enough to run.  A law limited a person to a firearm that can only hold 10 or 7 (like New York) or 3 cartridges puts civilians at risk.  What if this attacker returned?  What if there was a second attacker?  Or two dogs.  Or the panicked victim misses half the shots? 

Laws making "high capacity" magazines illegal don't stop crime, but they do put civilians at risk.
