11. Excellent idea

Horrible, graphics images of the war in Vietnam were shown on TV in the 1960s. I remember seeing the photo of the little girl running and crying, the old woman in the rabbit hutch (Manson gang photo), the execution of a north Vietnamese prison by a shot to the head, a Buddhist monk setting himself on fire. Things we see only in movies these days - aerial views of burned out jungles and villages, people on the ground fleeing, grizzly images that would be too graphic for movies today - I remember each and every one of them before the age of 12.

It isn't pleasant and there will be many complaints, but the damage that guns do should be seen like the pictures of fetuses paraded around on the back of trucks are. Sauce for the goose!
