This higher velocity combined with more rifling of a longer barrel which increases the spin of the bullet provides a flatter trajectory and improved accuracy.

I still maintain that the reason people are more twitchy over open rifle carry is the result of the fact that it is uncommon in our society. It is purely a human emotional reaction not based on any established facts or statistics.
Sorry had to point out some errors here. Physics is kind of my business.

You've got (almost) the equation for the energy of special relativity there. I think what you were looking for is Ek=(mv^2)/2. Also, the spin imparted by rifling adds gyroscopic stabilization. Trajectory is a function of gravity & the speed of the projectile. Also, rifle cartridges don't always contain more powder than handgun cartridges, but they do reach higher velocities because of the increase in the time the bullet is accelerated by the expanding gases (longer barrel).

Thank you for proving that a bullet from a rifle is more lethal than pistol round.

Yeah, sorry to be "that guy". I'm a nerd

I get you snowolf. I agree with everything you just said. I get it now, but I still don't see a need to carry it around. Quite honestly it would be a nascence. I agree that there is really no viable reason why not, other than accidents, and we have the right too. I just don't think it should be legal in metropolitan areas, mainly cause it would do more harm than good. That is not including the cities where it is a common and accepted thing. And I agree it is an issue that needs to be dealt with by locality.

All I can say is, I really I wish I lived where it was legal to own actual guns.
just because you dont "see a need" as to why people should be allowed to carry rifles in a city doesnt mean it should be made illegal. the right to bare arms is there in case our government ever becomes too tyrannical like when we broke away from the English and have to put them back in there place. if that ever happens im sure citys will be the first thing they try to control.

Hunting accidents with pistols, little to none. With rifles, much higher. There is a reason.
you don't own any guns, or have any idea what you're talking about, do you?

I own fifteen to twenty guns and am in the military. If you honestly think a pistol round causes more damage than most rifle rounds from 15+ yards you should probably tell the United States Military they are retarded and need to start using the 9mm version of the M4.

If you honestly think the average pistol round at 15+ yards is does more damage than the average rifle round you clearly need to educate yourself. We don't want idiots like that handling firearms.

what im curious about is why it matters which one does more damage. a bullet is a bullet, that shit hits you anywhere that matters your body wont care where it came from.

this is not and has never been a question of caliber or velocity or grainweight of bullets or any of that nonsense so i am not sure why you keep bringing it up.

exponentially more people are murdered by handguns every year, so i ask you again - what is your point?
