I'm a good shot, but NOT that good. I've actually considered applying for a position on a SWAT around here so I could attempt to become a sniper. Unfortunately I would probably suffer a major loss of income so I can't seriously consider it right now.

Fine with me. Just my last word on it, I wasn't such a crazy f***er about this topic during the Second Intifada. Seemed justified to get some worldwide attention on the suffering of the Palestine people.
But after Isreal retreated from Gaza, cleared parts of the West Banks, violence did not decrease. If you retreat and still get beaten up, it is time to strike back, unless you are suicidal.
