Jesus saves. Wearing protective gear is admitting you don't believe in him and his love for you.

Also, it is personally inconvenient, and that is worse than anything else that could ever happen.

It's insane that civilians can purchase and use 5.56 and higher calibers.

5.56mm is a small caliber, thoughóitís essentially the same caliber as a biathlon target rifle (.22) and significantly smaller than hunting calibers intended for deer or elk (.30-ish), let alone most handguns which tend to be chambered in 9mm, .357/.38, .40/10mm, or .45.

Itís not an especially powerful round and some 5.56 bullets can barely go through drywall, which is part of why an AR is a safer home defense weapon than a pistolóthe other part being that it uses two hands and is therefore much easier to control.

Itís precisely because itís not all that powerful that itís such an effective round in a semi-automatic rifle: with less recoil, itís easier to make follow-up shots at a high rate of fire than with a full-power rifle cartridge.

The tl;dr is that caliber isnít the right metric to use when legislating gun laws and itís exactly the sort of thing (liberal politicians who donít know the details of what theyíre proposing to restrict) that gun nuts like Boebert carp at when scare-mongering for re-election.

Then again most gun violence is tied up with crime that stems from systemic inequality, and god forbid politicians actually make meaningful progress in taking down the system that keeps them and their corporate sponsors in power.

5.56 rounds are fired at much higher velocity than a handgun round and tumble and cavitate when a person is hit and are pretty lethal no matter where they hit. If it hits a limb it's probably a goner.

Yeah exactlyóitís more powerful than many larger caliber projectiles. Itís also less powerful than hunting rifles, which are everything to the right of it on that graph other than 7.62x39 (the AK-47 cartridge).

The entire point of my post was to note that ďhigh caliberĒ is a meaningless term when discussing how powerful guns actually are.

Anyway LOL

Itís worth nothing to laypeople that 5.56 is a plenty powerful round and it blasts through drywall like nothing, it just breaks up as it does so, which is part of its design as a small caliber high velocity round. Itís only ďweakĒ when compared to full scale high caliber rifle rounds.

Theyíre also not magic and that article is terrible. Someone sees handgun wounds and deaths every singe day but has only once seen a rifle round so... we should legislate the thing that is so rare they had literally never seen it instead of the thing causing death every day?

I have never once been in a situation that would have been better if there was a gun around. YMMV.

Depends on what you mean by a ďtiny woman gunĒ but probably 1) yes technically, but 2) if you want to defend yourself with a gun I suggest you only do so given you can budget the time and the money to be a proficient and responsible gun owner. This includes a whole lot more than just owning a gun, and if anything involves doing you best to avoid situations where youíd need to use it.

The answer to your question has a lot to do with the race and socioeconomic status of the people dying from handgun wounds versus those killed in mass shootings at suburban high school, as I imagine you were implying.

Itís mildly inconvenient while you get used to wearing a mask, coupled with not being able to see the poor shop assistant/Walmart greeter/waitresses face and they might be making faces! under the mask instead of being forced to smile at them at all times no matter how abusive they are.
