Let me put a couple of facts out there:

- Any pistol is likely to have less bullets than an AR weapon. (Expanded magazines in a pistol are rare.) When you are out of rounds, your fucked. Meanwhile the rifle holder is still spraying.

- A rifle will usually have enough grains behind the round to go through walls and other obstacles. This is why police switched to 9mm - .38 rounds literally bounced off windshields more than once.

- A pistol flops around while shooting. A rifle is a more stable platform with less aim correction time required (if any in an experienced shooter as the killer was.)

- It takes longer to correctly aim a pistol than a rifle. A rifle is more like a line with two points - a pistol is more of bobbing on a point.

- More but I think the major points are made...

That all said, being on the wrong end of a pistol is mighty damn dangerous.

It is coming to the US (assuming you are posting from the US):

From the article:

The bill would make it a crime to offend, harass, terrify or even just annoy another person online. Skordas points out a few issues, like how will law enforcement find these so-called "online trolls?" and who is going to set the basis for what is considered "offensive?"

Guess I will just have to start facebuch.com in like, some Caribbean island or something. Damn those patent/copyright laws (shaking fist with furious look on face - oh sh!t - can I use "face" or did they patent/copyright that too?)

The way the US government is going broke at so many levels (NYC is considering tolls on bicycle riders) - I can certainly see some "fines" coming down the road for at least illegal clauses in contracts.

An officer may not have made an arrest, but the officer still has a right to detain you. Law classes are worth the money - even undergraduate ones. In fact, there should be civil rights classes in these universities. Of course, perhaps they won't like the outcome of students educated in the law....
