“No One Needs More than 10 Rounds!” – Yes We Do, Here’s Why

One of the common anti-gun strategies is to claim “no one needs ___.” “No one needs an ‘assault rifle.'” “No one needs more than 10 rounds in a magazine.” First off, the Second Amendment is not about what someone “needs.” Second, we sure don’t want to need a semi automatic firearm or more than 10 rounds, but when we do need it, we need it in a really bad way.

Let’s take a look at this home invasion.

This home invasion just outside of Atlanta shows us how fast things can go bad. Three armed robbers burst into a home and begin rushing into the interior to find anyone who’s home and subdue them while they rob the place. This woman took matters into her own hands and shot back. Those thieves ran out of the house as quickly as they could.

If this woman had been counting on a phone call and the police response time, she would have been lucky to have had enough time to get to her phone, place the call, and tell the 911 operator her address before the attackers reached her.

As soon as the first shot rang out, the three attackers ran as quickly as they could.

This is why the Second Amendment is so important. It empowers men and women of all races, orientations, and sizes to defend themselves against those who wish to do harm to others.

“But if there were no guns, she wouldn’t need to have defend herself”

Violent crime does not go away just because a specific type of inanimate object no longer exists. If it’s not a gun, it’s a knife, or a van, or a baseball bat, or fists. And don’t forget that handguns can be 3D Printed now.

Violence and crime exists in the world no matter what inanimate objects have been invented. Violence is an act of the person, not an act of an object.
