Something makes me feel like this idea is good in theory, but bad in practice. It would cause an uproar in people who want guns to defend themselves, because I don't believe they'll feel as safe with a deterrent than with a gun. A taser can't shoot nearly as far as a gun, and in many situations, criminals won't be incompacitated by just rubber bullets. Additionally, if criminals can find ways to defend them selves again these deterrents much more easily then they can against guns. I'm sure they could creat some sort of thick clothing that doesn't conduct electricity, making a taser useless, and should they wear a bulletproof vest, a real bullet, which would normally kill them, might knock them to the ground, and a rubber bullet, which would normally knock them to the ground, won't do a thing.
Surely a good compromise in the guns debate would be to give people wishing to defend themselves a non-lethal weapon like a taser or a gun with rubber bullets, that way they can defend themselves by temporarily incapacitating the enemy until the police arrives and nobody dies in the process. It's just as much a deterrent to criminals without the death.
New Years Resolutions are a good way to begin your year with achievable goals if you actually put work into them. People that complain about failing them every year don't have the willpower or are simply too lazy to follow up with action on their own words, amirite?
You wish some day you would find someone to really love, and that if you were to express your love for one another on the scale of stretching your arms, you would have to move them across the space and time continuum, extending one arm to a time way before the Haden and having your other arm stretching beyond the Cenozoic, amirite?
