“A Really Stupid and Futile Gesture”
That immortal phrase from Animal House pretty well describes the wretched antics that you may view here at your leisure. If Steve Irwin had been a shooter, he might have done something like this.
For some reason, it reminds me of the story a friend told me about his days as a salesman for a prominent maker of military small arms. He would travel from country to country, put on shooting exhibitions for the local cops/military, and write orders.
On one occasion he went to Pakistan, and was told to be at a certain airport at 7AM for his demonstration. When he got there, there were a lot of guys in uniform, but nothing to shoot at.
“They’ll be here in a minute,” he was told, and sure enough, a bus rolled up loaded with wretches from the local prison. They were herded out of the bus and onto the tarmac, where they stood in a line, awaiting whatever was coming, which in this case was going to be a hail of lead.
“Let’s see what you can do,” said his hosts, but my friend declined, and did not sell any guns that day.
