    It was Blue Bloods, I think! I saw the same show. Hollywood is a master at presenting a situation then determining the outcome to meet their agenda.

    If you saw the show, it was a "reporter" who asked the Police Commissioner, whose son was the police officer, why the officer could not have shot the gun out of the perpetrators hand.

    Perhaps it is just another "coincidence" that the good guys are made to look bad!

    And speaking of fat guys, my favorite "you gotta be kidding" scene is where noted Hollywood hypocrite Ed Asner plays a police detective. He shoots a guy out of a high tower about 50 yards away - with a J-frame snub. R-i-i-i-g-h-t.
    Tangle could do it.

    Jean Louise can have what is left of you after I finish. I can tell you are single....or you are hiding from your wife.

    Your saying that is like my saying that all men are a$$ scratching idiots without any thoughtfulness or intelligence. BOTH are wrong. I know many men that don't fit that mold (a few that do). So to make that kind of blanket statement is just wrong.

    Shame on you.

    Why shoot the gun? It's an innocent victim in this.

    The key to the Dangle character in Reno 911 is that he doesn't just wear shorts,he wears short shorts and I believe they were usually silver lame.

    Because under stress with severe time constraints and a very real miss-and-you-lose reality at that moment, the hand's a bloody small target to strike with any real confidence.

    ... if she hasn't been listening in the past I have no real reason to believe she understood what I was saying. I'm at a loss.
    You could make it concrete by having a game, a betting game, in which one of you tries to strike the other with a beanbag (or Nerf ball, or something soft). Only, one person's rules allow for striking anywhere, whereas the other person's rules require striking only the other person's hand. $1 a toss, and tally up the results. See who loses.

    Then equate those "results" to the very real probability of outcomes on the street in those sorts of situations, where a violent assailant with nothing to lose is pitted against an upstanding citizen (or cop) who's required on the spur of the moment to halt a deadly threat without fail. Put it into simple terms: probability of losing ... losing everything you've got at that moment, starting with your life.

    It could bring home the message in a way that, apparently, nothing else has.

    Worth a shot.
