The longer the gun barrel, the faster the bullet (up until a certain point). And while a gun with a longer barrel is easier to aim accurately (up to a certain point) it’s not more likely to be used in a crime than a shorter barreled firearm. In fact . . .

What’s up with that? Why are antis size queens?
