I’m serious. desmoinesregister.com: “The Association of Professional Piercers does not recommend the guns because they place vulnerable tissue in contact with non-sterile equipment and jewelry that is not considered medically safe for long-term internal wear. The jewelry is usually inexpensive, which compounds the probability of infection. The guns are usually used on multiple people, and there is the possibility of blood spatter contaminating the gun. It cannot be sterilized in an autoclave, and wiping it with alcohol or disinfectant is not effective in killing bacteria that can cause exposure to diseases such as hepatitis or HIV.” So a bad idea then. But a ban? Shouldn’t the public be responsible for its own health and safety, as they are (to a point) with every other type of gun (except machine guns)? Think of the children!
