Because anything larger would be bulky and unwieldy.

I don't know; i like the look of those 60 round Surefire mags. I don't have an AR though; don't squirrel hunt enough.

30 is "just right" for an AR, loaded only weighs a pound. And 20 can be perfect at times. The Surefires are too heavy for me.

Exactly what I think, 30 rounds is the perfect capacity for a rifle

I feel that the question isn't why want it, it's really what is claimed will be accomplished by banning them. Will mass murders not murder in masses because they only have access to 15 rounds magazines? Is it the 30 round magazine that prompts people to snap and head out to kill people in masses?

If there is empirical evidence of the fact that mass murders can be prevented if 30 round magazines were banned, then I'm in, sign me up.

If not than it's another example of swinging a hammer on a screw head.
