lol its not nearly that simple. Getting hit with a 22LR is quite a bit different than getting hit with a .50 cal.
I would rather get shot by a gun that get stabbed with a sword........
Guns are not ultimate killing machines, in combat you have to aim take cover ETC. I bet you or me can survive a shot from anything under a .30 cal to the legs or arms. You would need medical attention but you would definitely live.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
