"A handgun [wound] is simply a stabbing with a bullet. It goes in like a nail." With the high-velocity rounds of the AR-15, "it’s as if you shot somebody with a Coke can."The terminal ballistics is not quite accurate; but hey, if Feinstein says that an AR is more effective than a handgun for stopping some thug, who am I to argue? (Of course, a .308 loaded with hunting rounds designed for white tail deer or other light skin animals would be even better, but who wants the added weight and recoil).
