Do we live in a society where it is "the kings peace" and only those acting on orders "of the king" (or in this case elected officials) have a duty or right to act? I do not believe we do. That being said you may be saving a murderer by interfering.

That is my argument. In our society, we all have a duty 'to do the right thing' and shun and/or punish those who do not. Ultimately, these 'right things' are set so that we can have the life that we want.

An infinitely debatable thought and an answer we will probably never know. It's like trying to use a microscope to see inside the same microscope.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.
