Hence the "caution and attention to detail"
Guys who develop new loads go very slowly, watching the effects they
make with small incremental changes. It is a whole different art, best
left to people with the right measuring equipment, who know how to
"read" fired brass and look for the other signs of pressures that are
going too high.

There is, typically "X" hundred feet "from an occupied building or
space". In the city they know you can't get that far away so they just
say no discharge of a firearm. (except cops, drug dealers and guys who
catch their wife in bed with another guy)

Most of us don't... Some forethought comes into play. I worked in Boston
several times and would take a room there for the duration but my
residence was New Hampshire which was wide open. I did have
Massachusetts residency a longtime ago but when they passed a bill to
register all firearms with a one year mandatory sentence for
noncompliance I left the state.
For the same reason I would never go back to the state where I was
raised. The part where I'm from is rural and quite beautiful but NYC and
it's 13 million assholes is at the other end of the river.
Some people are anchored where they are either by family or job but I go
where the climate suits me.

cross into Washington where helmets are required I put the helmet on,
knowing some cop would get into my face sooner rather than later.

otoh, I've walked away from three totals and I wasn't wearing a belt for

Seatbelts are uncomfortable, and a nuisance when you stop at a junction and they lock as you try to lean forwards to look both ways, and a big nuisance if you're doing deliveries etc and getting out of your car 100 times a day.
Defeating it is easy, you short the connector in the latch, or buy one of these, or if it's just a warning light like mine, paint over it.
You can open your beer with them while driving too.
Seatbelts don't save lives. They can actually take them away. They prevent escape.
And the most important thing, it's YOUR life you're risking. Nobody's business but yours.
Law of mechanical repair: After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

The state has a traveling exhibition promoting the use of seat belts.
It's a frame mounted sled on a steep track. You get in, fasten the belt,
and they release the sled to slam into the stops at the bottom of the
ramp. They let you figure out where you'd be without the belt.
Anyway, they hand out free pads similar to this. They help where the
belt crosses your collarbone.
ical transport vans have seatbelts of a sort. The vans have tiedowns for wheelchairs similar to what's used for cargo transport. The floors have tracks for the tiedowns so they can accommodate one or more wheelchairs at a time. ヽ(ヅ)ノ
Why are you such a pessimist?
TV takes over your life when you could be doing useful things like smoking crack and stealing car stereos.
