If I had me a real pistol I'd put a plastic tip on so I could spot it
when I dropped it on the sidewalk and went back to look for it.
If I were a criminal, I wouldn't want a plastic tip. How could I
intimidate people if my gun looked like a toy? If I went out to shoot
somebody, I wouldn't want a plastic tip making my gun conspicuous.
Maybe if I walked up to a cop, the orange tip might make him think I
wanted nothing more than to shoot his eye out, but if I bounced a round
off his body armor, he might shout, "No fair!" and shoot me.

You don't have to push anything into the barrel. Just some orange paint
or tape on the end of the barrel would do it. Or you could glue some plast
attachement onto the outside of the gun at the tip. Cops, etc don't get to
the gun and look closely at it. If it's 10 ft away, just being pulled out
of a pocket, the suspect is moving, it's not well lit, etc, you'd see orang
but I doubt you'd be able to tell much else.
I don't see how anyone would want to be a cop now days. No mater what you
do, you are wrong and will pay fo it one way or the other. The cop just
resigned that shot that unarmed man. He will probably have to move to
another town and hard telling what kind of job he may be able to get.
In a town I lived in there was a man driving a Swan truck selling food door
to door. He was a cop and sprayed a man with mace. The man died and the
cop was let go from the police department.
I always said that the cop should not be hardly able to touch you if you did
what he says, but the second the person swings at the cop, it is justified
in just shooting the person on the spot.

In a million years I never thought I'd say this, but the only way the
issue can be solved would be if the police cruisers carried video cameras.
In the Ferguson incident I saw a published report that summarized all
the witnesses and what they "saw" was all over the map. A video camera
would help settle things.
If a review board saw the video and the policeman's actions were deemed
justified that should end the matter period.
My wife and I do volunteer work at a non-profit agency and there is
video surveillance everywhere. There has never been an incident worse
than some petty theft but they have cameras.
So, if some very low risk agency deems it a good idea to have
surveillance I don't see why the police don't .
here is the law
It makes perfect sense. But I don't know how you deal with people who are
unreasonable in their beliefs. I hate to eliminate laws that protect people
when utilizing their reasonable beliefs, just because there are stupid
people who have unreasonable beliefs.

Bingo. In these incidents like Ferguson, the media ignores most of the
real data, instead repeating the line "unarmed black teen shot by cop".
I just learned some more data that you won't hear on the lamestream media.
Forensics at Ferguson show blood drops 25ft to 30ft away from where officer
Wilson was. That puts Brown's max distance away at that range or
greater. The final shot to the front of the head that killed him was at
about 10 ft.
Now, which version of events does that support? A guy with his hands up,
surrendering? Or a guy charging back at the cop?
