Seen a guy shot multiple times with a .30-30 rifle sitting on the ground drinking a beer when I pulled up, but died before he got to the hospital. Another one, shot 8 times with 10mm and .40 S&W, including 2 dead center of the head (forehead and inside corner of eye), still managed to pass the 21-foot gap the police were keeping when he first charged.
That's why NY enacted the 7 round rule. You've got to put a limit on how many rounds a civilian can put into an attacker to make it a little more fair.
