Looking at the picture in #5 I am of the opinion that those holes were not caused by .223 ammo in the "assault weapons" by by the much bigger ammo fired by their duty pistols, probably .40 - but those guns are not "scary looking" yet.
The cheap tin box with a spring that loads probably 12 or 15 rounds is "scary looking" and needs to be banned but the same tin box with a spring that loads 7 is good for now.
I think that is how we are supposed to look at things now if I'm up to date?
That’s pretty good but we will probably never really understand the rationale fully. Unless we find ourselves dehydrated near to death or poisoned by acetyl ketones or something.
