Why is it that, when we discuss stopping power, the discussion trends toward our SD rounds (whatever the caliber or load) being shrugged off by the bad guy.....but the BG's guns & ammo has no problem striking us down like the Hammer of Thor?.....
I think we DO take this view point a lot.
It might be human nature. A variation of 'the grass is always greener.'
In a similar vein, others at different times have brought up the point that the anti-gun folk believe a thug can pick up any kind of gun and instantly be proficient and leathal with it while it would take a law abiding citizen YEARS of intensive military/LEO training to be able to use the same gun to shoot back.
