The odds of needing a firearm to fend off a violent attack are pretty low.
True.
Quote:
The odds of needing one and successfully using one are lower
That may be, but it is irrelevant.

Quote:
The odds of needing one, successfully using one, and needing to fire a shot to be successful are lower
True.

The list goes on but the odds of needing a spare magazine are incredibly small so we cannot be making the argument that extremely small odds are the reason to not carry a second or third spare.
That is an invalid statistical analysis.

One starts with determining the odds of needing a second magazine, and being able to use it, once the firearm has come into play.
