That's what I am trying to say here. These are not solutions. They are band-aids. Just cover the problem up for a little while, yet it festers underneath and gets worse over time.

Thats what I'm saying.
Hey look a boat full of somali's is coming our way.
Get the binoculars. Yup its them. ok get my 3006 and my box of home made ammo.
Now set up position prone on the bow. One clip in the bow. And the rest in the front windshield. Now if the boat keeps heading in my direction I turn the other direction and call a mayday and lay down massive amounts of fire until evaded or captured. If captured. Well I would eat lead first by my own hand.

As for profitable, how profitable was it to murder 4 Americans in a boat? Pretty sure they didn't have dollar signs plastered over their heads when they were captured...
