Its even less true, firearms have become MORE restricted not less. They wernt that heavy and the pocket pistol concept has existed a lot longer than some people think and calibres for that role have diminished from their prime numbers. According to wiki the colt navy was about 1KG. (now exchange the colt navy with a purpose made pocket pistol like a derringer)So you think you can draw a knife, run 20 feet and stab someone before they can draw and shoot?
Maybe that was true in 1890 when ohnimus wrote that,when pistols weighed 5 pounds.. but if someone has a gun licence they probably also have enough training to use the thing..and it's likely to be a firearm made in this century.
