Some states prohibit shooting fleeing felons.
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.
Would somebody please get that guy a bandaid...

Remember years back walkin' in a field pheasant huntin' as a fella passes me, his ears were perforated and had some blood on his collar.....he didn't look happy.....ouch.
Kinda reminds me of when an old farmer shot me in the backside with rock salt in '66 when I was young and dumb and trying to steal some peaches from his orchard.
Stung like a mother!
Then my dad gave me another stinging I still remember
Some think the whole rock salt charge is an urban myth.
I can tell you it is not.
With a black powder muzzle loader fowler and the right charge at a close enough distance it is effective.
I was wearing a bathing suit trunks and no shirt, farmer was less than 10 yards away.

I took a shotgun course once. The instructor was a long time police officer and LEO forearm instructor. In the classroom portion when discussing ammo selection, he did a google search for something along the lines of photos of wounds of birdshot and buckshot on humans after shootings.
He asked the class if we noticed anything about the dozens of different photos we saw of each. Some people pointed out things like noting the different spreads and pellet counts, but going back through them, he started taking a tally for the number of people who had been shot with each, and putting a tick in one of two columns, alive and dead. All the birdshot photos were like the one here, a person standing up or sitting down in a hospital at a crime scene, showing their wounds to the camera. The buckshot wounds were all photos taken of dead bodies, taken at the medical examiners office.
