Yes forgot add, hit the poll.

Done. Voted no. If this ever came to be some liberal would come in and say a gun looked evil,(hence unsafe) so it has to be banned

I loved the article about Glocks. "I think it may be an appropriate weapon for highly trained paramilitary officers in a SWAT team, but not for most police officers and certainly not for civilians." Darn, what is happening when police are having trouble properly handling Glocks!? The whole point of the Glock design is to be extremely simple for poorly-trained people to operate safely; the only way to render it unsafe is to pull the trigger! OK, this is probably just propaganda and inaccurate/bias. Actually, I find this rather derogatory to police officers. I know I would feel insulted if someone clamed that I couldn’t operate a Glock safely. Edited to add: Hit the poll

California-based firearms expert and historian Whit Collins fires a radio-controlled gun. He says gun makers should take a serious look at new firearm safety technology that is available to them. "Some clearly show significant promise," he said.

It appears that he a former editor of Guns and Ammo, and helped develop the 10mm. Now he is in bed with HCI. With friends like these, who need enemies? [:(!]
Another person to whom the regulations were sent is Whit Collins. Mr. Collins claims to be a former editor of Guns And Ammo magazine back in the 1970’s.

From the ballistician who gave us the 10mm Auto now comes the Centimeter cartridge.

Powerful cartridges fired from short barrels pose additional threat to public safety In addition to the public safety hazard of compact handguns due to their concealability, the Task Force discussed the public safety hazard posed by small, high-powered guns with short barrels. Task Force member Whit Collins explained that the greater the distance between the front and rear sights on a barrel, the less the optical error, and, conversely, the smaller the distance the greater the error. Therefore, short-barreled guns necessarily have less accurate sights than long-barreled guns. Collins also said that high-powered cartridges don't completely burn in less than four inches [most, if not all guns prohibited by the recommended standard have barrels less than four inches], meaning the gas is not entirely combusted when it reaches the muzzle. This causes turbulence and an "uneven, hard blow to the base of the bullet as it exits the gun." Short-barreled guns also tend to emit loud blasts, and bright flashes that are disorienting and cause all but the most experienced shooters to flinch, throwing off their aim. All of these factors make high-powered, compact guns more difficult to control, and therefore a greater threat to public safety.

He said Whit Collins had no credentials, but was only a consultant for Handgun Control, Inc.
