This Is Why You Need More Than An Arbitrary Ten Rounds
The gun prohibitionists tell us we don't need more than 10 rounds in a magazine as if they are THE experts in self-defense and home defense. Tell that to the mother who shot an intruder five times as he cornered her and her twin nine year-old children. Though the criminal is now in the hospital in critical condition, he was still able to leave the scene on his own two feet.
While I'm a big revolver fan, I realize that they have their limitations and this story illustrates it. I'm not going to second guess this woman's choice of weapon as it worked for her but it could have turned out much differently if there were multiple attackers.
The next time someone tells you that no one needs that much capacity, ask them what would have happened to this mother and her children if there had been two, three, or even four intruders. Do they really think the intruders would have let them live after seeing their friend shot? I certainly don't think so and I certainly don't think mothers and their children should be sacrificed on the altar of gun control because some politician felt the need "to do something".
