Then at that yardage it might have been a TCU .223?
Still isn't a shot I'd take with a pistol.
Most pistols are extremely underpowered
Maybe a .500 S&W or .454 Casull? .50 GI? AE? 41 Magnum? Those are a few examples of high powered pistols

However, since gun ownership is a Constitutional right laws can only be passed to punish unlawful behavior. After the fact.
The Supreme Court seems to disagree with your assessment somewhat. Has done so for a while now.
"The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed, but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it shall not be infringed by congress. This is one of the amendments that has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the national government, leaving the people to look for their protection against any violation by their fellow-citizens of the rights it recognizes to what is called in City of New York v. Miln, 11 Pet. [116 U.S. 252, 102] 139, the 'powers which relate to merely municipal legislation, or what was perhaps more properly called internal police,' 'not surrendered or restrained' by the constitution of the United States."
It doesn't say that cities (or states) cannot regulate gun ownership.
