Let me try to clear this up a bit.
I dont know if you have ever fired an assualt style weapon in the open air. You get a little fired up about it.
If you were shooting at a group of people you might fire multiple rounds and injure but not kill some of the people.
With a handgun you tend to aim more. Get cleaner shots.
Shotguns are either a sure kill or to far away.
There is an idea there.
And the main point was just to tear down the idea that a n AW ban would make things better just because there was no AW. I tried to find a possible scenario where it might actually be worse to not have one.
It may not have been the best example, but it wasnt completly out of left field.
See? That's not better than what you said before.
If the goal is to shoot people, maybe you kill them, maybe you injure them, you're not firing into the air. You're firing into a crowd. Many, many times with a AW, considerably fewer with a handgun.
As for AW/shotgun, if I'm one of 20 people being fired at, please do it with a shotgun. I think my odds of getting hit are slimmer.
