With the Dayton shooter having used a 100-round magazine, such higher-capacity magazines are firmly in the spotlight once again.
Anti-gun activists, the kind of people who have probably never fired a gun and have never actually studied gunfights to any degree, have been railing all about how you don’t need 100 rounds for self-defense.
However, Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky sent out a tweet yesterday that kind of destroyed that argument.
Some have asked, “who needs 100 rounds?”
If 6 brave, trained, and alert police officers with professionally maintained weapons fired 58 rounds to subdue the Dayton shooter,
I’d say my wife deserves at least that many chances to protect herself and my kids when I’m not home.
