I believe there is no such thing as too much gun, I'm sure there are many here that agree with me! That reminds me of a famous Marine quote by MAJ Holdredge "Sometimes it is entirely appropriate to kill a fly with a sledge-hammer!"

"Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet."
"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, tears in my eyes: If you f*ck with me, I'll kill you all." Marine General Mattis
