Yeah. I've thought of that. Haven't done it though.

Backstops must be 10 feet ABOVE the target?! Brilliant!

And residents must stop shooting 4 hours after police are called?? WTF? Freaking stupid.

And only one shooter at a time? Screw that! Wait, what is the minimum separation between shooters? Can two neighbors both call in that they will be shooting and be shooting at the same time on their corresponding properties for four hours?

Can you call in every four hours? Or perhaps two people go shooting, one calls in for the first 4 hour shift and the other calls for the second shift.

The point I am making is that we will conceive ways to circumvent their new laws in every possible way, and more. That is what has happened with many of the California gun laws. The bullet button being one of them, the device makes a magazine "fixed" because it cannot be removed without using a tool. The tool being the point of a bullet, or any other "tool" that is small enough to fit inside the recess.

Another law names specific makes and models of firearms that cannot be bought or sold in state. So manufacturers just renamed those models, etc. but kept them functionally and cosmetically the same (more or less).

Then there is the civil disobedience approach (which I wouldn't be surprised to see happening in Newtown- I could more or less guarantee it happening if I lived there) where people will not call the police to tell them they will be shooting, and by the time the police get there there are no guns to be seen and everybody is sitting around saying they didn't hear anything. Then they get another call across town at that moment. Keep 'em running all over town as long as you can keep it up.

Quote:
CHICAGO (CBS) — Questions tonight about two Chicago Public School safe passage routes and whether children are being put in harm’s way. CBS 2′s Dave Savini investigates routes having children walk right by shelters with sex offenders. On the outside, an old church building appears safe. Children walk by it to go along a safe passage route to school. But this church is also a shelter for child sex offenders. Predators targeting the youngest of victims which worries parents like Lisa Jones.

“I didn’t know that the sex offenders were there,” said Jones whose eight-year-old daughter walks by this building, at 200 S. Sacramento, to go to school. I just thought that was just a shelter for the homeless and, wow, I did not know that.”

CBS 2 found 65 child sex offenders registered at this shelter, yet Chicago Public School officials decided to start safe passage route on the same street.
Santiago Orlando is a shelter guest and says even he did not know about the sex offenders staying there. “It’s a lot of kids around here,” said Orlando concerned about the school children.
The schools nearby are Faraday and Jensen elementary, John Calhoun and Marshall High School. Also in the area, on the 2700 block of Harrison, is another shelter along a different safe passage route. It too has sex offenders using it as their registered address, along with other homeless folks suffering mental illness and addiction. A director affiliated with both shelters, Cynthia Jones Northington says they were not told about the safe passage routes. “We actually just saw the signs; that raised red flags for us,” said Jones Northington. “So we have some tremendous concerns.”
The safe passage signs led to Jones Northington asking how shelter guests will be impacted. She says she was told, “Sitting, standing, loitering could result in arrest.” So shelter officials made their own signs to warn clients to basically stay away during school hours. It was during this time, CBS 2 found residents hanging out outside both buildings and in a nearby park. “It’s a dangerous place for the kids to be,” said Lisa Jones who says she is not sure what to do about the safe passage route.

Shelter officials shifted schedules to better monitor clients leaving and entering their facility. A CPS spokesman says there is only one registered sex offender staying at either shelter. Shelter officials say there are about fifty sex offenders.
In a statement to CBS 2, a CPS spokesman says, “In cases where there are overnight or transition shelters and homes, both the Department of Family Support Services and the Chicago Police Department worked in coordination with facility operators to be prepared for the launch of these safe passage routes.”
What could go wrong? Steer the kiddies around gang turf and into pervert country. Well played Chicago, well played.

Perhaps if the city did something about the gangs? Yeah, I know, who am I kidding?

Well, compared to some of the other routes in Chicago, that may be the safest route.
Put our fearless POTUS in charge of straightening out, just like he did Kabul, Cairo, Benghazai, and - Oh, yeh, he already did Chicago.

give the kids guns so when the perverts try to abduct them they can shoot the fukker. Its safer than routing them through gangland where they are very likely to become collateral damage.

Curious about the 'non lethal pistol' referenced in this AP story-

MOSCOW (AP) - An argument in southern Russia over philosopher Immanuel Kant, the author of "Critique of Pure Reason," devolved into pure mayhem when one debater shot the other.

A police spokeswoman in Rostov-on Don, Viktoria Safarova, said two men in their 20s were discussing Kant as they stood in line to buy beer at a small store on Sunday. The discussion deteriorated into a fistfight and one participant pulled out a small nonlethal pistol and fired repeatedly.

The victim was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening. Neither person was identified.

It was not clear which of Kant's ideas may have triggered the violence.
