    NB: In case it’s unclear, my attitude to pistols is that: they’re great for spending a couple of hours punching holes in paper targets on a firing range, but I don’t want one for self-defence, I wouldn’t keep one in my home, I really don’t want random people carrying them around in their pockets in public, and if you feel owning one makes you safer, then there’s something badly wrong with your society.

    Also: Anyone who owns a gun for personal defence, and doesn’t practice with it regularly — and I’m not just talking about accuracy and rate of fire training here, but firearms safety and proper self-defence training — is an idiot. (If they’re ever in a situation where they need it they won’t have the reflexes to use it properly. And if there’s one thing worse than being confronted by a violent mugger or rapist, it’s a violent mugger or rapist who has just relieved you of the handgun you were failing to successfully use on them.)
