Have been doing some thinking about the "shootout" in which former LAPD officer Dorner participated, and how despite being in a wooden cabin, the only bullet wound he received was the one he inflicted upon himself.
In short, either those .223 rounds being fired at Dorner were not intended to hit him, or they weren't capable of penetrating the siding, sheathing, and sheetrock of that house. Neither is a good argument for banning assault weapons, really. I suspect that two wounded officers who will be making a full recovery are pretty glad that Dorner wasn't carrying a rifle chambered in .308, 30.06, 7mm, or the like.
