Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage:
** Tackleberry is a pretty frequent offender what with his performing such actions as shooting a cat out of a tree, firing a tear gas round into a car to get a kid to go to school, shooting a phone booth to get a woman's quarter back and shooting a man's cigar with a crossbow.
** There's also a scene in the second film at the end of a RousingSpeech where one of the older cops at the precinct shouts "Let's kick ass!" and fires his revolver into the air. [[RealityEnsues Everyone ducks for cover upon hearing the shot]].
