Striker fired vs 1911

I was wondering in court what the difference between a striker fired gun and a cocked 1911 would be?

1) A Glock is partially cocked inside but has multiple safeties.

2) A cocked and locked 1911 has a lighter trigger pull and is completely cocked and has multiple safties.

3) How would new Taurus pistols like the "Slim" that are SA/DA (single on the first shot and only reverts to double action if the primer does not ignite) would the prosecuting attorney say these are hair trigger guns? Or because you canít see the striker and they are plastic framed the jury would see them as soft cuddly warm and caring guns?
