    The "blast them with everything" kookers seem to forget that the shooter is responsible, legally as well as morally, for anything that any bullet that is fired does once it leaves the barrel.

    As I noted in another comment a few days ago, I lost most respect for the "home defense" nuts when I went to a gun-owners forum and asked if anyone had any experience firing frangible bullets in a Walther PPK (a pistol that is notoriously famous for jamming with many types of ammo), explaining that I didn't want any bullets to be able to go through my apartment wall and kill my neighbor. At least six people piped up that I shouldn't care what happens to my neighbors since they're probably criminals anyway.

    I bet Pete here thinks the same thing, right Pete?
