I had this in another thread but i wanted to bring this out and talk about it all on its own:
Reducing the amount of guns and then making them obsolete...ish.
Schools: Pepper spray and Tasers don't really cost that much and don't take the same amount of time to learn. It is non-lethal and if used improperly will not cause enough harm to worry about compared to a snub nose 38.
Homes: Start with an Ad campaign about turning in your guns for fair market value, In addition we will give you a Tasef/Pepperspray and classes on how to use them if you want.
Point out how defending yourself in your homes with a Gun has the same chances of you going to jail as the intruder.
Point out how defending yourself in your home with a Taser/Pspray is going to be 'allowed' even in the incidental death cases.
This also makes the Taser and PSpray companies more profitable allowing better research and development.
Put out that you can carry a Taser with you in public without fear of arrest.
Start the campaign and fix 35+% of this on the cheap.
Phase 2: Phaser's
The best thing about our NASA is the things that come out of it. Lets put more money into Science and create our Stun phasers.
That'll fix your guns in schools and eliminate another 35% of the guns at homes.
That and I want a Phaser.
I would hopefully like to discuss the 90% of what is going to happen and not the 1% possibility.
While the Taser has been proven to be more Instant in disarming and or 'stunning' most individuals. It is also the iffy on delivery and if you don't have a dual shot/and upclose version you might be in trouble.
The pepper spray i keep and give to the mother in law etc. is a sure bet at 35' 'with everyone vacating the house, but you might be able to go another 20+ seconds before being overwhelmed by the snots...
I guess its another of my rants on "IF the Gov't would buy it and implement and propaganda it thus pushing it forward a decade faster than normal" They could win without being restrictive looking.
