  •  Exactly. Given adrenalin-driven panic in any... (2+ / 0-)

    real world confrontation, handguns and rifles with high velocity rounds able to penetrate multiple walls are generally a greater menace to your neighbors and family members than intruders. With a shotgun you're a lot more likely to actually hit what you're aiming at, and far less likely to kill the kid sleeping in an upstairs bedroom across the street.

      to handgun rounds . . . a 45 is as, if not more, effective than 9mm on the target you can see, while far less likely to injure whatever you can't see on the other side of the wall.  And you're off into the world of complete fantasy trying to describe a "defensive" scenario where you need a 17 or 19 round magazine.

      Civilian ownership of a 9mm Glock or Sig pistol should be a diagnostic marker of "crazy" . . . l leading to immediate confiscation of all firearms from that individual.

      Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
