  •  Slugs? Great...suitable for blasting through doors (4+ / 0-)

    of homes & cars, capable of cracking engine blocks of vehicles, taking down big game animals, and even penetrating police body armor depending upon type of slug and propellant. Slugs are not a very smart choice for use in dense urban settings due to high probability of collateral damage. A slug will require more precise aiming than pellet shot shells and will fly farther retaining deadly force over longer distances.

    Why not 'defensive load' shot shells with BB sized or smaller pellets, birdshot even, that are less likely to go through walls, etc. and harm innocent bystanders, neighbors, etc.

    Hey BATF! Shouldn't a Federal Firearms License be required of the people passing out shotguns?  Shouldn't there be state or federal law enforcement present to ensure background checks are properly done?
