Because empty guns do not always keep them down…

Mother protects her family, shoots home invader 5 times with revolver (misses once). Keeps man subdued with empty gun as they empty and flee.  Home invader than escapes and drives off in vehicles.

Now consider these facts:

  • 5 shots was not sufficient to stop the invader
     
  • Ran out of ammunition. Had there been a second home invader,
    she  would have been unarmed… clearly there is a need for more
    than 10 round magazines.
     
  • She hit 5 out of 6 rounds on target, that’s an 83% hit rate
    (Compare this to police who had a mere 65% hit rate – remember that when people argue guns should only be in the hands of trained people like police officers)
     
  • She would likely be dead if not for her gun.  So would her child.
