    I agree that there is probably no more deadly long gun at short range than a full choke shotgun. That's why it's my personal choice for home defense. I just don't get the idea of it being "impactical".
    I agree with you Paul, in the video they talked about possible stray bb's hitting an unattended target, they were shooting at a 20yd target.

    Anyone see this episode of "Triggers" on the Military Channel. It has been airing all this week on Combat Shotguns. The Benelli M4 is one badass assult weapon.

    Combat Shotguns Premieres February 20 at 10 PM Deadly at close quarters, a combat shotgun is a powerful tool of any army. In this episode, Willis fires history's greatest shotguns, from the Blunderbuss to the modern semi-auto Benelli M4 and the pump-action Mossberg 590. Rounding out the episode, Willis gets some shooting tips from two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Sgt. Vincent Hancock.
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    The driving force was the Sandy Hook shootings and Obama had already won relection at that point. If they wanted to stop gun violence though, why wouldn't they try to ban pistols which are used in virtually all shootings? I agree they are not interested in stopping gun violence.
