How many 30 round magazines have ever killed anyone? Zero.
It takes a second or two to change a clip. Both the Newtown shooter and the Aurora Theater shooter changed clips multiple times. Would they not have done this if they only had access to 10 round magazines? In both of these cases, the shooters set out to kill innocent people and would have done so regardless of the magazine size. Banning clips over 15 rounds is no different than banning a large bottle of wine. It's ultimately up to the person using the product to be responsible for their actions.
I believe you are being very simple-minded by correlating high capacity magazines with mass shootings, yet neglecting the cause of these shootings, which is the shooter, not the magazine.
