I assume I saw the initial comment on shotguns and it was very poorly done. A shot gun is fine for a man if he understands how to use it, and the barrel is short enough, but it usually is not good for self defense if you are a small woman.
It makes no difference. A pistol is an equalizer for almost all of us. When we are confronted with over whelming power, the pistol is what can stop it if we understand the rules of using the pistol. If Obama wants to stop the stupidity of banning guns, and make possession an offense that would result in a fine (not confiscation) ..if.. that person had not attended a class on the use of fire arms, ..and maybe.. registered the weapon, he would have my support.
