This is the ultimate compromise
between the rabid
folks and the anti-anything-unpleasant group.
Take all the outlaws, stick them in a catapult and fling them at a castle wall built especially for this purpose in the Mojave Desert. This eliminates the immediate need for the nasty guns and catapults to clutter up the pantrys of Americans. You can take them to a pawn shop and get immediate cash. Should the hemp ropes break on the catapult, you can return to the pawn shop to retrieve your weapon until it is back to its criminal-flinging wall-painting activities. No outlaws, no guns. No guns, more beer.
