Re: Letter, March 30, “Get rid of the killing machines”

Again, the author shows her ignorance of guns and really should do her homework before going public.

The damage a bullet creates is based on the size and make-up the bullet. Yes, assault rifles kick out a very high-velocity bullet that spins extremely fast. If a straight ball round is used, it will slide right through the body like butter. We had this problem in Afghanistan as it would go through the enemy and NOT stop them unless it hit bones.

Now, the Guard Dog ammo I use to protect my house is for my handguns and will enter with a small hole and exit with a softball-sized exit wound, thus stopping anyone I shot.

So, before this author posts another comment and shows her complete ignorance, I suggest she actually do some research.
