    Ya kno, 'shooting' hoops. /snark. This is why we need to de-emphasize competitive sports in K-12. The parents add a lot of the crazy.

    Now this is almost as good finding the ex-marine in Morrison who lived next to a neighborhood playground and built IEDs he sold to whoever was willing to buy them to support his cocaine habit.

    Missile Launcher Turns Up During Seattle Gun Buyback (TPM)

    12/29/12 LA buy back nets two anti tank rocket launchers.

    Understood the launcher doesn't include the ammo and the other two had been disabled - required when military grade weapons are sold or transferred. These are what some people were willing to bring in.

    Also, too. Both buy back programs brought in old and some broken weapons, many by elderly. The articles point out that research shows the programs are not effective in decreasing criminal gun possession or use. So has anyone looked at the stats of accidental grandchildren deaths, elderly suicides or other non - criminal gun violence after those sales?

    How about  A 69 yo guy who shot and killed a 22 yo who mistakenly drove in his driveway.

    Sailors and his wife, Brenda, were at their home ... when they heard a “ruckus” in the driveway, said attorney Mike Puglise. A neighbor had recently been robbed and Sailors was wary when he spotted two people in his driveway getting into their car.
    According to Puglise, Sailors grabbed his gun as he headed outside, firing a warning shot into the air. He said he fired at Diaz only after Diaz accelerated his car toward him.
    I can imagine not getting the car in reverse when someone comes out of their house shooting a gun.
