And not one of the little weenie ones, he'll need that giant 4" x 4" square one that comes in its own special box.

"The protester, a proponent of Gen. Lino Cesar Oviedo, was shot south of Asuncion while calling for the resignation of President Luis Gonzalez Macchi."

Look at where the hole is! Shooting at people the are running away is simply a waste of bullets.

rubber bullets are probably a lot cheaper than special chemical foam.

Guys, have you seen these "rubber" bullets??? I don't know why they call them "rubber". It is about half-inch in diameter iron (yes, you read it right - iron) balls covererd with about 1-2 mm of plastic. Pack (i do not remember, but I think about couple hundred of them) sitting in small cylinder attached to end of rifle and rifle gets special piston to get it work, not regular bullet (there are another versions, too). It has very short range but man, it is a powerful and loud. I saw how these thing got fired (on firing range) and I will not go anywhere near this thing if I see them attached to M16...
