    A hammer is more dangerous than a pellet gun, and a taser would probably be used.

    A cop can no more shoot someone with a known pellet gun than they can someone with a gun made of wood.

    A car is for driving - doesn't matter how. Pills for taking - doesn't matter how. Etc.

    You point is BS. As much BS as claiming that victims are heroes.

    It is unfortunate that you do not see the difference between using a gun as weapon as it was designed and intended as using a automobile as such for which it was never designed. Perhaps you are confusing a tank with an automobile?

    The very nature of a firearm has as its purpose the firing of a potentially lethal projectile to kill or maim others in order to exert your power and will over them. An automobile is not designed for that purpose even though it can be misused as such. That is the fundamental difference.

    I suspect that you do not want to see the difference because it would then be unsettling to your ideological position which you believe because you opt to believe it. The confusion you feel that causes you to override an intellectual process is known as cognitive dissonance.

    Go to the Sports forum and hop on my new hunting and fishing thread. That could be fun!

    Can't say I've never shined a spotlight across a cornfield myself. But I wasn't much more than a kid back then.

    But no, I'm not gonna open them to enable your silly attempts to provoke & annoy.
    MY "silly" attempts to "provoke" and "annoy"?

    From the guy who posted a picture of himself holding a pellet gun to prove he's not afraid of guns? Did you think no one would notice?

    (And then you didn't even know why someone would call you out for having your finger on the trigger.)

    I think it's perfectly reasonable to doubt those rounds are loaded.

    Shooting people intentionally is not. The gun was invented for just that purpose. That is its purpose. It is being used just as invented.
