and in this limited instance, i am glad they are inefficient. I don't want them to have excess resources sitting around with nothing to do, and say

"Yeah, sure would be nice to know how many AR-15's Billy Bob has got his hands on".
"Yeah, and you know what? In a hurricane, Billy Bob would be the first one we've got to disarm..."
having that information would be too tempting and it would get put to bad usage.
"To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness... How pathetic." - - Ted Nugent
