What I said was it might be less dangerous to have a shooter with an HCAW because he doesnt have to aim, he just points and fires.
A pistol takes more skill. Shotguns take no skill whatsoever. So you might be a higher kill percentage with pistols and shotguns as opposed to HCAWs.
Again this is all trying to show that an HCAW ban will accomplish nothing and lead to calls for a more wide ranging ban.
If this were a video game maybe I'd care about kill percentage. On the other hand, in the real world, if you fire off 50 rounds with a HCAW with a fatal hit percentage of 15%, you just killed 7 or 8 people. If you fire your 10 rounds from your handgun - which, incidentally, takes AT LEAST as much time as many automatics, and for most people significantly longer - and achieve 60% accuracy, you still have killed less people. So explain again why I give a **** about kill percentage when the guy with the HCAW is firing 8 or 10 times as many rounds.
