31. YES, it is benign compared to 99% of the hunting rounds COMMONLY used
Please, educate yourself before trying to authoritate. Did someone tell you that an AR-15 or AK-47 are more powerful and deadlier than a 30.06 hunting rifle? If they did, they lied to you.

UZI? Hope I'm not busting your bubble but you do know that the largest percentage of UZI's use the common 9mm Luger round, don't you? Other UZI's use 45acp, even though it has a slower velocity, but they are not as common as 9mm versions.

YES, those UZI's fire the same round as that lowly Taurus or Beretta,

The GUN doesn't make the bullet come out any faster,
doesn't go any farther,
doesn't hit any harder.

The gun just LOOKS DIFFERENT, and as such, scares the willies out of the Brady Bunch and causes people to run to their keyboards and scream bloody murder and call for an all-out GUN BAN.

Sorry to be terse with you, but using buzzwords like UZI and AR just doesn't cut it. It might work at a Chicago diner or a Canadian nail salon, but not here.
