In many cases, those responsible for the crimes already have long records of criminal violence even murder. They are out of prison because it is considered inhumane to incarcerate criminals.
The recent unrest in the USA, is very troubling. The law enforcement is given the blame for much it that unrest. Many good officers are quitting the force. City mayors are forming civilian review boards to investigate the problem and solutions. In Columbus, Ohio, close to where I live the Mayor and his new police chief have announced a "Innovative New Plan" to reign in the senseless killing. They propose a new program intended to, "to hold those who commit these crimes accountable".
Well DUH, isn't that a creative NEW idea!!!! Time will tell how this new idea works out. In the mean time, I recommend you do not enter my home uninvited!!
The sheriff of our county has a policy if someone enters your house with intent to do do wrong crank up your backhoe and just don't tell him where the bodies are buried. if you don't own a backhoe you can borrow his.
Back the original post. Being a SCUBA diver, I have experienced sounds and shock waves transmitted very well in water. For example a jackhammer working on a concrete ramp at the waters edge is not comfortable if your head is under water anywhere near that activity. I cannot imagine what that guys ears must feel like. With an elastic powered spear gun, there is no expansion force, so no shock wave. But a gun firing underwater, not a good thing to have your ears close to.
I also would not want to fire a gun the barrel full of water!!! So that must be some special gun with specific loads or that intended purpose.
Frank, I perhaps shouldn't direct my next question to you specifically, but your posts indicate that you have a very good command of how firearms work, so, what would be your estimate of how many marksmen on this planet could perform 12 perfect head shots from the hip, in 90 seconds into moving targets?
This is the accusation leveled at Martin Bryant, who has an IQ of around 60.

If shooting from the hip or firing from belt level, I find that revolvers are better suited for this action due to the grip design Longer barrels have 2 advantages the first is obvious for projectile stability once it leaves the muzzle. the second is the weight of the revolver is further out front of the wrist and greatly reduces muzzle climb.
The standard grip of a revolver does not transmit as much wrist snap like a pistol does. If needing to do head shots with a pistol then it is best to fire from chest to shoulder height because the wrist can be positioned at a more natural angle Foot knee or groin shots would be about there your wrist would be in its natural position when shooting from the hip with a pistol .
As to how many who could make 12 perfect head shots in 90 seconds from the hip I have no idea I can hit a rattle snake at 20 feet with my .22 revolver from the hip but not every time I can hit a tin cup on a fence post from 35 feet with my 1911 .45 but that is a 2 hand stance sighting down the sights.
When I was on the Nurnberg Pistol team in the 70s we had some guys who could cover their 3 round groups with a quarter at 100 feet best I could ever do was once at 75 feet. But now days I prefer my stainless steel .410 Rossi snake charmer with its pistol grip hole in the stock. it doesn't weigh as much as my Model 29+ Ruger 8 3/8" barrel 44 magnum plus the 71/2shot covers my lack of taking time to aim.
Now for your 12 head shots to the head from the hip if I am allowed to use my kel-tec ksg pump I can maybe give you 30 perfect head shots fired from waist level in probably 30 seconds give or take a couple seconds if they are 50 feet or less in distance, I'll even use slugs to make it more dramatic
