Blowgun Attacks, Reports About Blowgun Attacks On The Rise

Blowgun attacks, or at least reports about blowgun attacks, appear to be on the rise.  According to this article, a 41 year-old Wisconsin woman recently shot five people with a blowgun.  She told the police that she did it because she liked hearing them say “ouch.”  In addition, there was this article that I saw a few days ago on Barstool Sports, about an older man who was hit with a blowdart while trying to beautify Hampton Beach in New Hampshire. 

I don’t know how these people are getting access to such dangerous weapons, but the anti-blowgun lobbyist in Washington need to step up theri game.  This kind of thing is simply unacceptable.  I don’t want to live in a world where innocent people are pelted with blowdarts from all angles just because some deranged woman likes to hear them say ouch.

  1. Blowguns aren’t the problem, it’s the people. This woman obviously has some mental health issues. The other people who did it had criminal records, they should be treated like guns, criminal records, no buy. That simple.
    Blowguns cost $5-40. And are very easy to get. But they’re not very lethal. They just don’t have the stopping power or penetrating power.
