Why 33 rounds makes sense in a defensive weapon



From the Washington Post:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...020406709.html

Perhaps I've entered bizarro world... but I thought the WP was a fairly mainstream newspaper?

Not a bad article:

"Those who would ban extended magazines, will say that although hundreds of thousands are in circulation and thousands more will surely be sold before a ban is enacted, it will be worth it if it saves just one life. But the other half of that question must be asked, too: Is it worth it if it costs just one life?"

I’ll say he perjured himself stealing Henry’s tag line “load on Sunday, shoot all week long”. Besides that it’s a good article.

Stephen Hunter is a great writer I just didn't expect that paper ever to print this from him...

Hunter has been writing for the WP for awhile. The NRA did an article on him awhile back

Hunter has been a writing opinion/ editorials for the WP for a long time.
It's funny considering his history in fiction and the leanings of that particular paper.

Like others have said, he did an interview with American Rifleman that was quite good, not too long ago.

I think it is great to see something like this in such a liberal paper and area.


"Yes, they can use semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, protected by the Second Amendment and unlikely to be banned by local law, but women generally don't care to put in the training needed to master them. Nor can the elderly handle them adeptly."

I disagree with this statemneyt though. I feel it is much easier to shoulder a long gun and shoot it accurately than to quickly fire a handgun. Especially for those he use as examples.
