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.
