Less Than Three Rounds

Speaking of Gun Rights Examiner, here's a column by Daniel White on the topic of debunking common gun control myths. It's an interesting presentation of the facts and worth reading and disseminating to others. One in particular caught my attention and I thought it bore repeating here-

Gun Fact: The number of shots fired by criminals has not changed significantly even with the increased capacity of handguns and other firearms. Indeed, the number of shots from revolvers (all within 6-8 round capacity) and semi-automatics were about the same – 2.04 vs. 2.53. In a crime or gun battle, there is seldom time or need to shoot more.

One to remember the next time a ban on high-capacity magazines is called for. Which might be sooner than you think.
