    Haven't seen the show. I'd assume they either got special permission or maybe just made sure they didn't get caught. I'm reasonably sure most LE in most cities would take a dim view of grenade launchers OR flamethrowers being played with in city limits.

    Now if you want to come out to my place, we can shoot the grenades into my pond and have a fish-fry afterward... if you overshoot and take out one of the neighbor's cows though, you'll have to pay for it.
    Sorry, it was grenade launcher, they just showed a preview of them making a flamethrower and trying that out in the next episode so that's stuck in my mind too. Anyway, it's a great show, you can ask them to make any type of gun and they do it.

    As i have always said stick to the truth and the facts because Liberals can't deal with it.

    When Citizens are free to carry concealed weapons crime rated drop precipitously and when guns are taken away the crime rate jumps as it did in Australia.

    Crime up Down Under

    One armed citizen who was trained as I have been could have stopped the Tucson shooter dead in his tracks after the first shot.

    The only thing you must be sure to do if you do take out the bad guy is lay you weapon on the ground and make no sudden moves until police arrive so you don't get taken out by another armed citizen.

    Obama and his minions want us unarmed and stupid so he can put his Black Theology agenda into play without fear of what is going on in say the Middle East where they are not happy.

    Of course most of those riots are promoted by the Islamic Cult leaders who rely on Bovine Scatology to push dumb-asses into a so-called religion that is no more real than Kwanza.

    what is your point-any harmful thing you do with such a device not only will get you serious time you will also get additional prison time for using "dangerous ordnance" or "weapons of mass destruction" to perpetrate the crime

    He probably believes in the idiotic notion that all criminals behind bars are in prison for drug crimes and prostitution or that police run around arresting black people for bogus crimes.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    My point is they didn't go to jail, but as someone who posted after you suggested they may have gotten special permission for TV.

    Has it? I would love to see any evidence of that. We're a fairly violent country. We're not roiting in the streets on a regular basis, but we hold our own.

    United States Crime Rates 1960 - 2009

    Violence in the United States


    You'll have a hard time proving prison growth is the reason for any drop. To most, the reasons are unclear.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Posted this thread last year, it overviews a report from the Cato Institute that examines incarceration rates in comparison to violent crime rates. I don't feel a need to revisit research you haven't done.
