Well why would anyone need more than a couple of rounds to defend themselves? I don’t know how many times Ive heard this carp from liberals I know! I have started responding to them by pointing out just how many times our well trained police officers miss their target while shooting at a suspect and ask if we should mandate a return to LEO’s using revolvers, because by their logic a well trained police officer should never need more than six rounds to get the job done.
Those four cops that shot Amadou Diallo in the Bronx fired 44 shots. 44 shots at one unarmed guy. An back in 72 two NYPD street cops broke up a bank robbery by revolutionary types armed with M16s stolen from a NG Armory in Rockland County. Both cops were wounded. They fired 18 rounds at the robbers and had 12 hits. Both bad guys went down. Cops used to be trained but now, even with the “9”s and the fancy dan shooting ranges with the bells and whistles cops are putting too much lead in the air. So in answer to your question, make them go back to six round 38s with the four inch barrel.
You might also mention the Korean merchants in LA during the Rodney King riots, who defended their stores against MOBS with these so called "assault weapons." Theirs were the only stores that weren't looted or burned.
But if that's not recent enough, mention the woman in (I believe it was) Georgia, who was defending her two children against a home invader, and who shot the invader 5 TIMES in the face and chest, and he still didn't go down!
