    Driving home just now, listening to Hannity, and this fellow calls in. He tells us that he is a life long shooter, and we can eliminate 95% of the fatal police shootings if they are required, "to have the first two bullets in the clip be rubber bullets. Rubber bullets are actually only half the cost of regular bullets."

    There you are. The ultimate solution, plus an financial boost to the rubber industry!

    What if the other person's gun has regular bullets for the 1st 2 shots.....lead against rubber....I wonder which would win the day...I think the police should keep on getting along with self defense rounds.

    Hmmm. Rubber plus heat I would think would cause a sticky mess in your barrel. Or heat can and harden rubber making it less pliable and forgiving for a glancing shot.

    You guys are just not progressive enough in your thinking. I mean, this guy is a life long shooter so he knows some stuff...

    There was a proposed law in NYC several years ago that would have required police to try and stop attackers first by shooting at a limb. The head cop said basically, I don't think you understand how hard it is to hit ANYTHING under those circumstances, and you want us to aim for an arm???

    I did learn bounce shooting. Maybe we could try that? Police could shoot the ground in front of them and take out their ankles then be sued for maiming the poor high school football star/ church altar boy for the rest of his life.

    Perhaps if we limited police and military to a maximum of seven rounds, they'd make darn sure they need to fire them.

    Will he follow up the two rubber bullets with two kneecap shots? I hear the 'just shoot them in the leg' solution pretty often too.
