    Molded plastic to replace waiting periods.

    After working all afternoon trying to open up the plastic clamshell type packaging on my new fishing reel it got me to thinking. It took forever and I was nearly decapitated in the process. I ended up having to go back to the store and purchasing tin snips and a porta power to open it.

    So heres the plan I came up with while applying the tourniquet to my arm. Instead of waiting period on hand guns why not make gunmakers and ammo makers put their products in this type packaging? In the time it takes to open the package people will forget whatever ill will they might of had for anyone, and correctly aim their anger at whomever is responsible for this packaging.

    That packaging is what I dislike about Christmas. My kids are home playing with all their new wonderful toys, while I am in the E.R. getting stitches from opening them.

    That packaging might make people go on murder sprees from the frustration of opening them.

    Great idea! Maybe each bullet can be shrink-wrapped.

    Oh the war wounds from battling those I have. Combining razor sharp edges, and nerve dead fingers, you can guess how many times Ive looked down and when "oh not again".

    I hate buying anything that is in this type of packing. People won't even shop lift products that are in this type of packaging.

    I wish I had one of the machines that packages things in those plastic clamshells. Every time I had to pay a bill or taxes or anything, I'd package the check in one. With any luck they'd decide it wasn't worth it and never cash the check.

    OMG, that's brilliant! I would totally do that, too! And I'd like a portable version as well, please, for when I walk the dogs. Those disposable doo-doo bags are still pretty darn gross!
