Pipegold as long as you're not a gun hating liberal, it's all good!

In spite of our "little uprising in the 1770's", I agree!

And again in 1812-1815. There was that little Andy Jackson welcome at New Orleans.

Question: "Stories, when they can be heard, .." ? Does this mean there is some kind of censorship over there as to the "types" of stories that can or cannot make it out to the free press?

Second question:
Why does it need to be a revolver for your story? Semi-auto's have their accidental firing troubles, too - probably moreso.

1. It's my understanding that mainstream corporate media, press, publishers, outlets are variously owned, run, controlled, influenced by, and vulnerable to pressure from the enemy. If material is going to be genuinely critical (and not just controlled opposition) of that enemy, it's probably better to use smaller, independent publishers, with unfortunately weaker production, promotion, distribution capabilities - resulting in smaller audience. An effective censorship either way. I'm sort of reluctant to sign a contract with the Beast.

2. I know even less about semi-auto's! It doesn't HAVE to be revolver. With the times involved, gun sourced sometime between WW2 and 1960, used sportingly by 11yr old girl 1970, then again her as mildly special needs adult in 2006 resulting in AD/ND. Using this table:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_pistol#United_Kingdom.2C_British_Empire_an d_Commonwealth_of_Nations
... it seems more likely to have been one of those 3 revolvers around WW2 and after. Father could have appropriated it during WW2 service or after? Cheaper? More knocking about as they're not as popular as fancy new semi-auto ones? All this is background and unimportant, just figuring which is most likely. Another consideration is the usability by 11yr old girl. Revolver simpler? Those three don't look too big/heavy. The AD/ND is an important factor though, although if I feel the AD/ND ends up seeming too weak/lazy/incredible, I may have to rethink whether I should go down the AD/ND route at all.
