Are Shotguns Safer Than Rifles?

American Hunter magazine writer Jeff Johnston investigates shotguns to see if they’re that much safer than rifles. The perceived reasoning, or myth, according to Johnston: “Because shotgun slugs have lower velocities than modern centerfire rounds, they are less powerful and cannot travel as far, and therefore there is less chance that an errant shot could injure or kill a bystander. This is why states like Iowa and Illinois ban rifles for deer hunting and only allow shotgun slugs or ballistically similar muzzleloaders, right?” Read his article in The Daily Caller.
