It's also pretty funny that you claim that Libertarians support the rich and powerful considering we are vehemently opposed to corporate welfare, bank bailouts, and corporate/bank subsidies. In fact, Libertarians have been in opposition to even the "anti rich" Democrats on these issues. I put "anti rich" in quotes because Democrats are even deeper in the corporate profit than the Republicans, which is saying something! Libertarians are extremely anti-corporatist, to say otherwise once again shows an extreme lack of knowledge of even basic Libertarian principles.
So, I will ask the question again. You have no flippin clue what libertarianism is, do you?
As to stopping power the difference is negligible. The studies I have seen done all say that both the 9 and 45 have very close to the same rounds needed for a kill as each other.
Less recoil always everything else being equal allows for faster follow up shots. That is why guys load just enough powder into their competition rounds to cycle the action.
Is it a huge amount for a skilled user no but slower is slower.
2) modern 9mm ammo such as golden sabers, Hornady critical defense or Federal Hydrashocks have almost as good stopping power as modern 45 ACP loads. Where the 45 ACP has a clear advantage is when you are limited to FMJ''
3) in steel we load the rounds enough to reliably cycle the action. In USPSA its to make the 165 Power factor (Major) though. you can make 165 with a nine millimeter but its way beyond SAAMI specs and only in guns designed for such loads like an STI match master or the Czechmate.
