Why don't authors do research?

I read quite a bit and the books I read usually have firearms mentioned. Very few are accurate, Tom Clancy is the only one who usually gets it right but most of them just make stuff up. One I just finished had 2 well trained operatives choosing 9mm over 5.56 for the stopping power. Also one made a 150 yard shot with a 9mm pistol and took 1/2 a guys head off, another . At least this on guy admitted in his prologue he didn't do much research but how hard would it be? Another one doesn't know the difference between a semi-auto and a revolver & uses both for the same gun.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
