Even though New York’s SAFE Act tried to make sure that New Yorkers never had more than 7 rounds in their guns with which to defend themselves, this same restriction would have left a San Diego restaurant employee outgunned.
When two men with masks and guns entered a San Diego restaurant the employee who fired at them was not wishing he had fewer rounds in his gun. In fact, he fired 8 shots at the armed would-be-robbers before they fled, both with gunshot wounds.
According to NBC San Diego, shots were fired on Friday night at Uncle Tony’s Italian Cuisine:
An employee called deputies to report that two men armed with guns had entered the restaurant.
Before the alleged would-be robbers could open fire, the employee said he retrieved his own handgun and fired at them in self-defense.
According to deputies, the restaurant employee told officials he fired eight shots from his handgun while the attempted robbery suspects were inside the eatery. The employee said he believed he struck both suspects in the upper-body area.
The suspects were not immediately found, but two men matching their description ended up at a local hospital just after midnight with some fishy stories about how they obtained those gun shot wounds.
Police arrested these men on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy, assault with a deadly weapon, and other weapons and probation violation charges. So it looks like these criminals did not care that they were breaking the law when they tried to rob this restaurant and they probably would not care to follow a magazine limit either.
This is yet another example of how ridiculous it is to have an arbitrary magazine limitation. The employee was already outnumbered by the two gunman so it would make the law abiding citizen even LESS safe to remove a few bullets from his gun for when he most needed them.
By the way, the SAFE Act’s 7 round limitation was already struck down by a federal judge, much to the dismay of anti-gunners who will most assuredly keep pushing for pointless and arbitrary limitations on gun rights.
