The time soon approaches when we need to clean house if we are to "clean

There is no reason to gun for businesses, but if the businesses are in
fact criminal (which is surprisingly easily defined, think RBN), and
cause that much trouble, we can gun for them and feel good about it, too.

Advocating vigilantism is simply not a very wise position to take.

Taking the the power to determine what is and is not criminal onto
yourself is in fact illegal in most places.

I quite agree!
