We can all complain about teachers, cops, fireman, government, ObamaCare and all the rest of the things in world that are not perfect. But when we have idiots who are immoral and think its funny to shoot innocent people in the face with a BB Gun risking loss of eyesight or worse it makes it almost impossible for things to function or work properly in the world. It's just hard to believe it is a 30, 40 or 50 year old doing this. If you are doing this type of thing for fun I can only imagine the other things they are involved with that lead to a less civilized life for everyone else.
