    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Good Lord. If someone ever shoots me with a flare gun, I do believe that's when my 'righteous anger' will set in (ref. Lima's anger post).

    Well, I suppose the good thing about a flare gun is that I believe they only have one shot. So Lets see, flare gun with one shot vs. 9mm with 15 rounds... Hmm. I know which side I'd rather be on.

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee." -- Jules Winnfield - Pulp Fiction

    Dukalmight: They make 12ga rounds called Dragon's Breath. Find them at your gun show or search. It's a phosporus round that shoots a flame 100yards (300ft) downrange. It's quite devastating and only person I've ever heard of getting shot with one broke into a home through the window and got shot in torso. It killed them and basically they were burnt to a crispy critter right there. Now if you just want to be mean, they have one with a big ball and buckshot behind it or two balls and a cable with about a foot in between....LOL

    Just a thought about how the criminals made a weapon when something more effective wasn't available to them. They didn't have an eeeeevil black assault weapon, so they made do with an improved zip gun. Gun control will never work for just that reason.

    And check out a video on youtube called "Rounds of Authority". They show a variety of different shotgun loads in ballistic gel including flares. Deadly force without a doubt. It would be good to watch so you could articulate to a jury why you shot somebody with "just a flaregun".
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    seems to define the action rather than the tool as the crime.
    but later in the article they say that they were felons possessing it. that changes it to a dangerous weapon.

    whatever--they are the dangerous weapon and need to be blunted as necessary.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
