The thought experiment: How fat do you have to be to stop a bullet?
In the past two days, back-to-back attacks in Honolulu and Seattle have added new episodes to an ongoing American drama: everyday scenes of work or leisure suddenly transformed into carnage by killers who open fire with handguns. We recoil in horror and search for explanations, but we never face up to the obvious preventive measure: a ban on the handy killing machines that make the crimes so easy. There have always been workplace pressures, shunned teenagers who dreamed of revenge and quiet neighbors who went berserk. What is new in the past 30 years is a deluge of high-powered, high-capacity handguns being marketed widely to consumers. These are the weapons that spray into crowds and cut people down in groups before the intended victims can even react. Most gun-control groups -- and politicians who take up their cause -- are too timid to champion a forthright handgun ban like those in Britain and Japan, offering instead a weak assortment of regulatory doodads like requiring ''smart'' guns and new variations on licensing and registration. The role these groups and politicians play as enablers is even more disappointing than the predictable loud protests to any sort of regulation from the shrinking minority who own guns -- one in four who own any gun at all and one in six who own a handgun.

Sophia is a project to collect life lessons from fascinating people. For three decades, gang members seeking a new life have shown up on Greg Boyle's doorstep. The nonprofit is best known for its social enterprises, like Homegirl Cafe, staffed by ex-cons and described as a "farm-to-table breakfast and lunch spot featuring Latino flavors, where homegirls serve tables instead of serving time. In recent years, Boyle has come to realize that jobs aren't enough. Gang membership is "about a lethal absence of hope in young people," he says. Thus, more than ever, Homeboy Industries focuses on providing clients with services for mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence support, and relationship therapy. Boyle decries the trend of government programs that refuse to work with violent or serious offenders, who need the most support.
[Hook] Because you can't, you can't. You can't stop a bullet. I'm giving you my trigger. But you better never pull it. You can't, you can't. You can't stop a bullet.

We hope this is a strictly theoretical question—or that you have plans to move to a better neighborhood shortly. Assuming the former and, admittedly, there is a morbid entertainment value in fantasizing about extreme self-defense scenarios , the first thing we need to establish is what sort of bullet are we talking about here?
