True. 00 buckshot pellets are .32 caliber size. there are 9 pellets per cartridge. If the BBC guy got hit with that he wouldn't be conscious enough to talk about it. .04 buck or #7 birdshot is more likely, the latter being popular for crowd control.

"If Morsi's supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood push them...they will absolutely eradicate them. They will not play "footsies" with them or try to have ROEs that attempt to "make friends."

Hmmm? Can we use this example of how to handle leftists, demsheviks and other enemies of liberty?

Will there ever come a day when a child could say, “Mommy what’s a demshevik?”?

Buckshot does not make superficial wounds. Bird shot does if you are far enough away.

It all depends on the range, whether the shot skipped off of something, and other factors we are not aware of. Either can leave superficial wounds or kill, depending on how far away you are.

I’d like to think so, but christian belief dictates that we have to tolerate them, rather than using the eugenic solution they will use on us.

Skipping birdshot off pavement to spread the pattern to hit the mob in the legs is an old street cleaning tactic. It can also break the momentum of a mob on the run (front ranks stumble or fall, tripping up those pushed by the rest causing a pile-up and blocking the street), and is what the striker and street sweeper shotguns were designed for.

I’m not talking about killing people, just the bad idea. Once they lose government schooling the natural competition of the education market will drive bad ideas out quickly.

Later the Muslim Brotherhood's leader told supporters that protests would continue until Mr. Morsi was reinstated.

Morsi supporters will be shot until protests end. Any leaders calling for protests will be hung by the neck until dead. The world does not want Islam. No negotiation.

Go Army.

Give the Worthy Oriental Gentlemen ... as Napoleon said, ... a whiff of the grape (shot). A Muslim is either at your feet or at your throat.

Hopefully, the Gippos still have mounted police.
