No, because they would have to be measurable and repeatable results to have any scientific merit. They would argue that they could not guage temperature, wind, the BB weight (they didn't witness what precisely was used), the gun, distance to target, angle of incidence, etc., etc.. All they could say was "We didn't test it in our lab, so your results or opinions don't matter", and scientifically, they would be right.

The only way it would work would be to shoot one of the scientists in the eye in his lab during an experiment. How likely would that be to happen?

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
