1) you CAN fire off 10 rounds of buck shot through a shotgun in a matter of seconds - this equals more projectiles flying at the target than even 30 rounds through an AK does....hell, for that matter, theres a guy who can fire 10 rounds at a target through a double action revolver
in two seconds with the reload
2) No matter how you cut it, it's simply not fair to ban one gun over another because it's an "assault weapon" - and I'm still waiting for your definition on that characteristic. Irregardless of what type of weapon this asshole had, the kid would have died....even if it was a simple single shot .22 rifle - they ALL can
kill, but the common factor between all of them is they require a person
to pull the trigger
