Aw come on guys, 'Buckshot Joe' wouldn't lie to us. Go outside, empty your gun and don't bother reloading because the boogerman will be booking it to far places as fast as he or they can get there.
Now about that little niggling problem of all that shot coming down. Maybe we can mandate the manufacturers to equip every shot with a little parachute so they won't hurt anybody as it descends.
Of course if loud noises will scare the bad people we wouldn't even need shot in the shell, a little talcum powder or corn meal or rice flour. It would be good for the environment because it's biodegradable and it would smell nice.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
