Alcohol and gun powder mix fine, but it tastes awful.

Yeah, but it's registered, and inspected, and insured, and you need to be licensed, and they can take it away from you if you kill people with it.

A gun is just WAY more convenient.

I was just in Florida for vacation. I heard loud music and went to the movies but didn't shoot anyone!
