I agree. Specially if you are including the writing of the article.

OP was generous when they said 4th grade.

What happens if you don't have a gun?
That shows how much of a difference it would be.

It's great no one got hurt, but I wouldn't rely on a paintball gun to confront someone.

As for the author of that article, I'd place her at about the third-grade level for the opening run-on sentence and failure to capitalize the first word of the second sentence.

well, there's the baseball bat ... or the demolition axe ... or my pole arm (yes, I have a pike) ... or my 21oz framing hammer ... or my 8" buck knife ... or a whole host of other items that could be classified as weapons in my hands


... all silenced weapons btw

Oh NO she shot Elvis.

That was a painful article to read I feel that the editor had been drinking or smoking something but at least she shot Elvis with something.
