Why do liberals seem to think pistols are somehow less deadly than rifles? This isn't a video game, if you get shot by either you're dead?

Pistols are used ONLY to kill people with, most rifles are meant to be used by hunters to hunt wild game with. It's also a lot harder to conceal a rifle in your jacket, pants, under your car seat for easy access, in the center console etc.

The key to “more deadly” is the rate of fire. While limiting the amount of ammo won’t make a shooting victim less dead, it can reduce the number of victims per incident. For example, Stephen Paddock would have had a hell of a time pulling off the Las Vegas shooting with a revolver or even a semi-auto pistol like a Glock or a Beretta.

Glad you agree that much stricter gun regulations are required.

80% of people shot by handguns survive.
30% of people shot by rifles survive.

The question is gibberish.

A pistol doesn't empty a 30 round magazine of high velocity bullets in 15 seconds. People try and try mass slaughter with pistols, but it just doesn't match the killing power of the assault rifle. This isn't hard to understand. Besides, if you are just as dead, then obviously no one needs an assault rifle. So lets ban them.

A good case for banning all firearms!
Time you benighted, god-blighted former colonials grew out of playing cowboys and embraced a mature and civilised society!

I'm not sure why you would pretend that liberals think handguns are any less deadly. You are right, handguns are deadly. Since they are deadly I would support a complete ban on any weapon with a magazine capacity greater than three rounds, a ban on all semi automatic weapons, and a ban on all guns with a barrel length of less than 18 inches.

So what about the part about America having a mass shooting every week.

Liberals aren't exactly the sharpest tools in the shed.
