One of the testosterone replacement guys

There is a very distinctive NRA demographic, old and white, and grumpy, and well........lets just say old or not so old, they are typically not aging like the legendary fitness figures the late Jack LaLanne or Charles Atlas or guys like these who model for testosterone replacement therapy (a side note - testosterone levels are often synonymous with baldness):

These people have to have them their guns because they feel inept, impotent, incapable of dealing with a world around them which frightens them disproportionately to any real danger. It's not like they're going to outrun someone. They're looking for the proverbial magic bullet to make them powerful. Except that given their temperamental infirmities, it mostly makes them something else. In the absence of anyone caring about them one way or the other, much less being important enough to rob or otherwise pay attention to them, we see the usually white and old, flabby and crabby crowd doing things like this, to lash out at the world for their lack of importance; yup, that'll learn 'em!
Seriously - who let Grandpa out in his night shirt, apparently barefoot, with a gun? And if grandpa can't shoot straight enough to hit something at pretty much point blank range.....maybe it is past due to take away his car keys as well as his ammo and firearm. Getting grumpy gramps here some happy pills to aid his temperament and judgment doesn't seem amiss either.

Video: Elderly Man Shoots Unmanned Police Vehicle In Santa Fe, N.M.
Police say only 3 of 5 shots hit from distance of 10 feet
Police officers in Santa Fe, N.M. recently started using unmanned speed-enforcement vehicles to ticket heavy-footed motorists. It hasn't exactly been a popular endeavor.
One disgruntled man took his dissatisfaction to another level in the wee hours of Wednesday, April 11, firing at least five rounds from a handgun at the vehicle, which sustained minor damage.
Video cameras inside the police SUV captured the incident. Upon examination, the tape showed an elderly gentleman with a flowing mane of white hair, wearing what appears to be a nightgown of some sort, approach the vehicle.
As he fires his weapon from approximately 10 feet away, he mutters something inaudible, then gets back into his own vehicle, believed to be an Audi SUV or wagon. Police say only 3 of his 5 shots hit the vehicle.
The victim vehicle, the Santa Fe New Mexican reports, had been left overnight on Bishops Lodge Road, north of downtown, and is out of commission while being repaired.
Many critics have complained about "Big Brother" recording their whereabouts as well as inaccurate tickets with high fees. Police are hoping release of the video results in the assailant's arrest. He'll be on the hook for something more serious than a speeding ticket.
